Headed by the famous gynecologist and reproduction specialist Dr. Violeta Fodina, it offers all kinds of infertility treatment, both standard and unique ones. The highly skilled and experienced professionals of iVF Riga clinic have helped more than 1,000 babies to be born in a number of countries around the world. The priorities of the clinic include a personal approach to patients, the use of advanced technology, following the latest trends in reproductive medicine and a holistic approach to treatment. The clinic keeps in step with the times, constantly introducing modern methods of examination and treatment. The employees of iVF Riga continually improve their professional skills by attending international conferences and workshops. iVF Riga clinic has the largest bank of genetic material and a unique reprogenetics laboratory, which is the only one of its kind in the Baltic countries.
Cryopreservation of genetic material is a view into the future and an opportunity for many people to keep their prospective options. Regardless of whether the patient wants to preserve his or her genetic material for social reasons or health reasons, cryopreservation may be a chance to have his or her own children in the future. It is possible to keep the genetic material in the bank of reproductive cells of iVF Riga clinic for up to 10 years. Its viability after defrosting is guaranteed at 98%. Such a high level is attributable to the modern method of freezing the cells and tissues – vitrification. This technique helps avoid crystallization and thus does not damage the structure of the cell.
Preservation of fertility in cancer patientы: сryopreservation of reproductive cells and ovarian tissue is one of the methods to preserve fertility in cancer patients. It is recommended to freeze one’s own genetic material before an upcoming surgery on the ovaries, before radiation therapy or chemotherapy, as well as before using medications that can affect reproductive health.
Delayed motherhood: in today’s world, dominated by busy schedules coupled with a powerful flow of information and events, a woman by the age of 40 can manage almost everything to provide a comfortable life for herself and her children. Unfortunately, a woman begins to think about family planning at the time when there are problems with reproductive health and she cannot get pregnant with her own cells. To avoid the need for donor cells, it is recommended to take care of the future and opt for the cryopreservation of genetic material.
Bank of donor gametes:iVF Riga clinic has the first official bank of genetic material in the Baltic region with a wide selection of high-quality donor cells. The donors of iVF Riga clinic are carefully selected before joining the programme. To become a donor, a person must undergo a mandatory medical examination: visit a gynaecologist/urologist, a psychologist and a geneticist and have tests performed. The donors must have extremely good health and be aged from 18 to 34 (women) and from 18 to 45 (men). All the donors included in the bank of genetic materials of iVF Riga are anonymous. Recipients can choose a donor on the basis of the donors’ genetic and anthropometric data (height, weight, skin, hair and eye colour, blood type and Rh factor) and also based on the personality traits, level of education and some preferences which the donor has shared (music, art, hobbies and so on). Personal information, such as photos of donors, is not available in accordance with the law of the Republic of Latvia.
