India’s largest chain of fertility centers sets up its newest facility in Punjab to offer couples the best treatment using the latest technology. 14 March 2014 Infertility is on the rise in India due to numerous reasons including genetic disorders, stress, urbanization, late settlement in life as well as the rising incidence of an unhealthy lifestyle. A recent study estimates approximately 15%-20% of married couples in their fertile age group suffer from infertility. It is an increasingly prevalent health concern and treatments are widely being sought to overcome infertility related disorders. However, there is a widespread shortage of standardized clinical protocols, structured training, quality laboratories, qualified embryologists and ethical practices.
Filling in this gap and bringing to fore a trusted and a credible partner offering standardized and ethical infertility treatment to couples with the latest techniques, Nova IVF Fertility launched its 7th center in India in the city of Jalandhar today. Part of Nova Medical Centers, the Nova IVF Fertility center in Jalandhar was inaugurated by R L Bassan, Civil Surgeon- Jalandhar and Gurpreet Ghuggi, celebrated Punjabi actor and comedian, in the presence of Suresh Soni, Chairman & CEO, Nova Medical Centers, V.P. Kamath, Group COO, Nova Medical Centers and Dr. Jasmine Kaur, Clinical Director, Nova IVF Fertility – Jalandhar.

This center brings together renowned specialists with state-of-the-art technology and extensive services all under one roof. The new facility in Jalandhar is a step ahead in realising Nova’s commitment towards offering standardized and ethical infertility treatment, as well as addressing the urgent need for an organized institutional provider for fertility treatment. With six well-established fertility centers in major cities and the seventh one in Jalandhar, Nova IVF Fertility plans to launch as many as 10 centers in a year’s time with the goal of bringing high quality assisted reproductive therapy to the people of India."
In addition to providing core procedures such as IUI, IVF, and Andrology services, Nova IVF Fertility – Jalandhar will offer several state-of-the-art technologies such as assisted hatching, blastocyst culture, and vitrification. This center will also offer another sought after advanced technique known as IMSI (intracytoplasmic morphologically-selected sperm injection). This is an upgrade of ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), where the embryologist carries out the fertilization of the oocytes (egg) using an extremely high-powered microscope to select the sperm cells with the best morphological quality.
Dr. Jasmine Kaur, Clinical Director, Nova IVF Fertility, Jalandharadded, “In my career, I have come across hundreds of couples wanting to have children but who have been unlucky.
