With an experienced team of over 70 experienced, we have accomplished many firsts in Turkey — we are one of the most renowned IVF centers in Europe.

Leading IVF Treatment Center in Turkey
The IVF and Genetics Center of Istanbul consists of IVF, Andrology, and Perinatology Clinics; Embryology, Andrology, Research and Development laboratories.
This is the only center in Turkey where all these units are present. Our Center is the first and the only Center certified by the Ministry of Health to train doctors, embryologists, biologists and nurses for IVF implementations.
Our team has achieved outstanding success in helping patients with issues such as repeated implantation failure and pregnancy in later ages. Through our scientific research and development we continuously refine existing techniques and develop new techniques in these fields.
By using pre-implantation genetic diagnostic (PGD) methods in families who have a risk of genetic disorder, it is possible to diagnose thalassemia, Muscular Dystrophy, Hemophilia, etc. in embryos.
With all these achievements, various treatment techniques we offer; our center occupies an important position not only in Turkey but in Europe and worldwide. Therefore we have many patients coming abroad especially from Italy, Germany and the Balkan States.
In addition to infertility treatment, we also feature Research and Development Studies in our center; research and knowledge sharing is very important to us; we hosted the 5th World Congress on Genetic Preimplantation Diagnosis; thereby the congress took place in Turkey.
Our Research and Development Laboratory was the first to obtain and cultivate embryonic stem cells in Turkey; we achieved to obtain various tissue types such as functional heart muscle cell and nerve tissue cell.
Our center has been and will be a leader and an example with its scientific and ethical studies. We are working on improving the success of IVF treatments and developing new techniques by cooperating with the world’s best centers.

IVF with ICSI in Istanbul
IVF with ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection), also known as microinjection, is mainly used for men who have fertility problems. It is when a single sperm is injected into an egg. This procedure is performed under a microscope using microinjectors.
ICSI has very high success rates, especially among couples in their early thirties. ICSI has enabled 95% of infertile men to become biological fathers. ICSI or microinjection is for men who have low amounts or no spermatozoids in their ejaculation, or abnormalities.
Our Center is the first center in Turkey that achieved pregnancy using the microinjection technique. And also, IVF Center and the Genetics Laboratory are located in the same building (Memorial Hospital IVF Center happens to be the only Center in Turkey where you can find all these facilities together).

Excellent patient care facilities. Professional staff. Very good attention from the doctors. Excellent prices. Performs only neccesary tests. On the other hand, staff's English level is low. Even with English speaking coordinator, the egg inducing process is somewhat hectic. Unfortunately in the end we did not get pregnant.
I NEVER FORGET THIS LOVELY EXPERIENCE IN THIS CLINIC BECAUSE OF DR GEM DEMIREL I AM PREGNAT WITH TWEENS

Great communication, great doctors - Gyuvench Karlikaya is my doctor at Memorial, nurse Sabrie - bulgarian native speaker. I am very glad to met them. Everything about the procedure was professional. But for sorrow there was no pregnancy and I don`t have a baby girl now.
