UAE is attracting a number of medical tourists from Africa, Asia and other parts of the world due to the availability of fertility treatments. Patients looking for IVF treatment for infertility issues, are preferring UAE due to the world-class quality treatment, ease of accessibility and competitive affordability offered by the country.
A strong medical tourism market, along with plenty of services, amenities and state-of-the-art services are making Dubai, the most preferred destination for fertility treatments. In addition to that, there are plenty of clinics in Dubai that offer safer services which otherwise are not available in other countries.
IVF services in Dubai also offer a screening procedure to detect any genetic disorders before going in for an implantation, thus increasing the success rates of IVF and making Dubai’s IVF services more preferred. UAE also provides the couples an option of having a gender of their choice as part of ‘Family Balancing’ also known as ‘Gender Selection’ to achieve a balanced representation of both genders in the family.
With ART clinicians and embryologist, fertility clinics in Dubai ensure premium healthcare services to patients. IVF Lite is another viable option offered by these clinics, involving a soft stimulation protocol. It provides a very efficient and cost effective alternative to the conventional IVF.
Dr Gautam Allahbadia, who heads the IVF team at MMC IVF says, “With IVF Lite, we give fertility tablets to the patients instead of injections. All the babies have pre-implantation genetic screening done, and parents are even able to choose the gender of the child.”
The cycle begins with a charted out regimen of Fertility Inducing Medications. All the confirmatory tests for pregnancy are performed before starting the procedure to avoid complications and offer a risk-free fertility treatment to the patients. UAE offerings in field of infertility treatments are opening new doors to the couples hoping to experience the happiness of parenthood.
With the medical advancements, the Health Authority in Dubai is aiming to attract 500,000 medical tourists a year by 2020, which probably will make Dubai a medical tourism hub. To achieve this target, a number of hospitals and medical professionals have been involved in the process to offer flawless medical services to the foreign patients.
