Alpha Fertility Centre is located in Kuala Lumpur and is recognised for innovating several fertility firsts not just in Malaysia but also worldwide. Run by leading and highly trusted doctors and embryologists, the clinic is fully equipped to offer the latest full range of fertility treatment options including egg donation, egg banking, embryo cryopreservation, to name a few. These services are offered using revolutionary therapeutic laparoscopy and freezing technology.
Specialising in hysteroscopic surgery, In vitro fertilisation and laparoscopic surgery, the clinic pioneered the successful application of comparative genomic hybridisation for testing embryos with chromosomal inversion and translocation in 2011. It also developed the now widely used protocol and communication system for embryo transfer and the mathematical formula designed to help doctors on the appropriate quantum of ovarian drilling. The following are other achievements that the clinic is extremely proud of:
- The world’s 1st successful pregnancy and delivery following PGD-CGH diagnosis of chromosome inversion
- The world’s 1st reported successful pregnancy following the use of freeze-thawed sperm, freeze-thawed eggs, and freeze-thawed embryos
- The world’s 1st successful pregnancy and delivery in a patient with Müllerian agenesis (a woman born without a vagina)
- The world’s 1st reported delivery following the salvage of a presumably abnormal embryo
- The world’s 1st to demonstrate the importance of embryo transfer duration on pregnancy outcome.
Leading the world in several infertility treatment procedures, the clinic consistently achieves high pregnancy success rates that exceed top IVF centres around the world. It is also recognised for achieving 100% Freezing Survival Rate for eggs and embryos – thanks to its award-winning new freezing and thawing technologies.
