IVF treatment is a boon to overcome this rampant issue of today's society."Due to infertility problems, the whole family environment gets disturbed and sometimes things even head to divorce. Before this problem gets converted to social problem, many such private players should come forward to eradicate this increasing issue of infertility," he added.

This is the 31st centre of the group in the financial centre of the city and the 2nd fully-dedicated centre for infertility treatment in Mumbai region.

If a couple takes timely consultation and proper treatment, then they can fulfill their dream of becoming parents. The new establishment in Navi Mumbai is destined to bring the joy of parenthood in lives of couples facing infertility issues.
For the same reason, the group is planning to open 50 centres in next two years throughout the nation to provide accessible and affordable international standard treatment to every segment of society."
