Our work is based on many years of experience. Sanatorium Helios was established in 1994 as one of the first clinics in The Czech Republic to deal with the diagnosis and treatment of infertility.
In 2002, we have begun co-operation with one of the most successful IVF centers in the world – the Australian Genea World leading fertility clinic (formerly Sydney IVF). Thanks to an exclusive license agreement with Genea, we have the latest practices and technologies available long before they go into commercial use. For this reason, we gain a big advantage over other centers and give infertile couples a better chance of success earlier than others.
The success rate of IVF cycles ranks us among the world’s leaders in the field of infertility treatment, according to the official expert evaluation on the Global Clinic Rating, Sanatorium Helios during the years 2016 – 2020 always ranked in the highest positions among the top ten clinics.
In 2018, SANATORIUM Helios was the first and so far the only center for assisted reproduction in The Czech Republic and Slovakia to receive accreditation from Global Clinic Rating. This accreditation demonstrates the fulfillment of a high level of expertise, technological equipment, quality of services provided and response from patients. Accreditation is only possible for clinics with proven highly above-average results, which are achieved in the long run.
Unlike other centers, we provide comprehensive entrance examinations.
We do not prolong your journey to the desired goal with inefficient methods. From the very beginning, we have been trying to find the most effective solution for you. Our goal is to help you get pregnant and deliver a healthy baby in as few IVF cycles as possible.
What principles do we insist on?
We insist on the quality of the stimulation. The course of the patient’s stimulation is closely monitored with us – during the stimulation we perform at least three inspections, including ultrasound examinations and blood samples, for an absolutely accurate control of the stimulation.
We work 7 days a week, so we plan the collection of eggs and transfer of embryos for the optimal time so as to maintain their quality – your stimulation will not be prematurely terminated or artificially prolonged.
A detailed analysis of sperm quality allows us to select the optimal method for fertilizing eggs (so-called classical fertilization, ICSI, PICSI).
Only properly performed extended cultivation allows us to transfer quality embryos in the blastocyst stage.
We strictly transfer one embryo. We are not afraid to introduce only one embryo, because we stand for the quality of our cultivation. We know that the chances of getting pregnant do not increase with the number of embryos introduced, but with the number of transfers.
If, based on our experience, we acknowledge that the embryos are not of sufficient quality to perform embryo transfer, we will not recommend this transfer in the interest of the patient.
We are not afraid of freezing embryos, because we know that the technique we use to freeze does not damage the embryo. For the method currently used for freezing embryos, the success rate of pregnancy in the last years has not fallen below 50 % (per transfer – with one transfer of one embryo).
Thanks to the perfectly developed method of freezing (vitrification), what many people only hoped for for years has become a reality – we can freeze eggs so that they retain their quality even after thawing in a few years.
We were the first in Europe to perform preimplantation genetic diagnostics on 5-6-day-old embryos – blastocysts. We currently perform all possible PGT-A / PGT-M (formerly PGD / PGS) examinations using NGS and PCR methods. compared to embryo transfers without PGT-A / PGT-M).
We have program of donating gametes – eggs, sperm and embryos, that has been built since a long time.
Our care for you does not end with a successful embryo transfer, we are happy to take care of pregnant patients during pregnancy. We offer all pregnancy examinations, prenatal and ultrasound diagnostics and counseling for high-risk pregnancies.
