According to The Indian Society of Assisted Reproduction, infertility currently affects about 10 to 14 percent of the Indian population, with higher rates in urban areas, where one out of six couples is impacted.

Speaking on the launch, Mr Chandrasekhar C., CEO, Apollo Health & Lifestyle Limited, said, “We are extremely happy and proud to launch one of the biggest state of the art standalone fertility centre in Hyderabad. India has become the most sought after destination for all the infertility-related treatments, for the affordable and qualitative treatment that the country is able to provide. After the successful launch of Fertility services in Kolkata, Noida, Borivali and Solapur in past 3 months, this will be the group’s Second flagship centre in Hyderabad that will cover the Central suburbs and areas in Telangana. We are also planning to add 5 more satellite clinics in Hyderabad itself in the coming month to bring our services and expertise closer to patients in the neighbourhood. “

“With a wide range of services being offered under one roof, our state-of-the-art centre will be boon to many parents living in and around Telangana, who are trying to conceive and can now avail our world-class services. Apollo is the most trusted healthcare brand in India, and we hope our fertility services will address an essential gap in quality Infertility treatment in the region,” he adds. Apollo Health & Lifestyle is a part of Apollo Hospitals Group, but is focussed on primary care and speciality services, in small formats in the neighbourhood. Apollo Fertility is a part of it and has been growing in the last three to four years. The Centre standout because of their transparent and ethical standards, coupled with world class protocols.

This will also reduce unnecessary treatment costs. The reasons of infertility are manifold, 40% of the problems are related to male fertility, 40% is related to female fertility and balance 20% are related to both. The scientific way of treatment involves examining both man and woman and giving the appropriate treatment, but the current practice is to focus on female fertility and searching for the cause after the failure of a couple of costly procedures performed on the woman.
