Doctors remove eggs from the woman and sperm from the man. Then eggs and sperm are placed together where hopefully, some will unite.
The fertilized eggs are placed in a special culture. Once the eggs begin to divide several are placed back into the woman's uterus. Ideally, at least one of those fertilized eggs develops into a successful pregnancy.
Directed by Anwar Soubra MD, the Center for Assisted Reproduction at Trad Hospital (HOPE) offers the highest standards in the fields of infertility and assisted reproductive technology. The center uses a computerized database to contain detailed patient information so all couples can be accurately informed about total number of eggs retrieved, rate of fertilization, fate of unfertilized eggs, number of embryos transferred, etc.
A yearly assessment of the Unit's performance is made available to physicians.
Couples are also offered counseling for different kinds of assisted reproduction techniques.
The Unit's Mission
HOPE is aware that medical intervention used to alleviate infertility intrudes upon the most private and sensitive parts of our existence and relationships. This is why the unit will always be guided by the respect for human life at all stages of development, by the right of infertile people to proper treatment, and by the welfare of children born as a result of the hospital's intervention. HOPE will carry these duties to the highest moral, ethical and medical standards and treat all personal and medical information with the utmost confidentiality.
The unit offers a comprehensive service in the fields of reproductive medicine, endocrinology, andrology, and premature menopause. The different practices and techniques offered in our unit are
