With speedy developments in technology used for treating infertility issues (which were untreatable before), there has been a rise in options for infertility specialists over the last 20 years. Additionally, those professionals who can make the best use of the available technology are well & truly in demand.
According to Dr Abha Majumdar, director and head, centre of IVF and human reproduction, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, “Advancement in infertility treatment is the result of persevered research in every aspect. This is the most convoluted form of medical practice but being an in vitro fertilization (IVF) specialist is one of the most gratifying careers possible, because you are altering the life of a family by augmenting a child. In this practice area, success depends on the hard work and commitment of the whole team comprised of different specialists from varied streams.”
Infertility specialists offer top-notch treatment to couples who are unable to bear child. There are a broad range of treatments available from simple medication to operative laparoscopy and hysteroscopy and surgeries, if required. If these treatments do not bear fruitful results, then there are assisted reproductive techniques such as IUI (intra uterine insemination), IVF (in vitro fertilization), IVF-ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), where using a micro manipulator a sperm is injected into the egg and PGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis).
With the demand for such treatments skyrocketing in the last few years, infertility centres are opening up across India. A great way to make a head-start is by engaging with a reputed tertiary care set-up where all treatments are available to gain practical know-how and experience.
In the end, there are no shortcuts in the medical profession. It is the team work that will help you accomplish big and become a successful infertility specialist. Every smile you give makes your life beautiful, says Dr Abha Majumdar.
