 Increase in Success Rate of IVF
Gynecologists have noted an increase in the success rate in conception of women using In-vitro fertilization (IVF) since November 2010. Renowned gynecologists, Dr. Indira Hinduja and Dr. Kusum Zaveri cited that the success of IVF in 1980s was a meager 10-15%. Then it gradually went up to 30% but over the last few months the success rate has surged up to 72%.

Both gynecologists plan to submit a research paper about the techniques they have developed and the reasons for the increase in the conception. They have also announced the launch of their new IVF clinic at the Hinduja Hospital. The present cost of IVF treatment is Rs. 80,000- 1lakh per couple. With an increase in the number of patients at the Hinduja Hospital the doctors are looking forward to carry out more research on IVF and also bring down the cost of the treatment.

Hinduja Hospital management plans to spend Rs. 1.5 crore as a capital investment for the proposed project and equip the hospital with latest technologies to treat even the most difficult cases like male infertility.
