Our success rates are high and we keep our patients' stress levels low. We believe the best patient is a well-informed one, and that you are the most important person in our clinic.
We adopt a success-oriented approach towards infertility. This is very different from the traditional medical approach, so it needs to be described in detail.
Many infertile couples want to know - "What is the diagnosis, doctor? Why am I not getting pregnant?" Or "Why did the IVF cycle not work?" However, we feel this is the wrong question - and if you ask the wrong question, you get the wrong answer! Rather than focusing on what your problem is, you should focus on the solution - which is a baby! This means that the question you should be asking is "What can we do to maximise our chances of getting pregnant?"
Instead of spending time, money and energy on diagnostic testing, it makes more sense to select treatment options which maximise the chances of getting pregnant. You should concentrate on treatment paths and action plans - the next step forward, rather than worry about diagnostic labels.
Fortunately, today with IVF technology, we are better at solving problems for infertile couples rather than diagnosing them. This often means that while we may not be able to explain why embryos did not successfully implant after IVF, the chances of success by repeating the treatment cycle remain excellent.
At the Clinic
We strive to provide the best quality medical care, using the latest technology. Our equipment is state of the art and is sourced from all over the world.
For example, our CO2 incubators are Nuaire incubators from USA; our stereozoom and inverted microscopes are from Olympus, Japan, and our ultrasound scanner is from Aloka, Japan. We use IVF catheters from Rocket of London, UK; ICSI pipettes from Cook, Australia; the Saturn laser unit for embryo biopsy from Research Instruments, UK ; IVF culture medium from Vitrolife, Scandinavia; and IVF disposables from Becton Dickinson, USA.
We help you to formulate an action-plan which is designed to resolve their problem as cost-effectively as possible, making the most efficient use of time, money and energy.
We keep our unit efficient and patient-friendly. Thus, Dr Anjali Malpani and Dr Aniruddha Malpani provide all the medical care you need personally - we do not employ junior doctors. Since we provide all our services at a single facility, you know you will always find us here at all times.
Coming to Malpani Infertility Clinic for IVF treatment Coming to Bombay (Mumbai) for IVF is extremely easy.
Bombay (Mumbai) is a major metropolis, and has
its own international airport. You can book your tickets online, and find the best deals by asking Indian travel agents in your city. Another option is to check out
www.bootsnall.com. A return air ticket toIndia from the US costs about US $ 1000- 1500. Your husband can accompany you, or you can hand-carry his frozen sperm in a dry shipper ( which you will need to borrow from your local infertility clinic) or in a dry-ice box packed with dry ice. The clinic is in the heart of south Bombay, and is an hour's ride away from the airport. IVF treatment is done on a day-care basis, so you do not need hospitalisation at all. There are many hotels nearby and we can help you arrange accommodation in close proximity to our clinic. You only need to make 4 - 6 visits to the clinic during the entire cycle, and after the embryo transfer, you can fly back home.
Over half our patients come to us from out of Bombay; and a quarter of all our patients come from overseas, so we are very experienced in meeting your special needs. To make the process as easy as possible for you, we have developed protocols that allow you to interact easily with us by email. You can have all your preliminary testing and care performed by your own doctor in your own town. This means that with well-planned scheduling, you only need to spend about 10 to 20 days at our clinic to complete an IVF cycle of treatment.
Traveling to do IVF may make it less stressful for you. Getting prepared for the cycle is more stressful (things to do to get ready for the trip, etc.), but the cycle itself may be less stressful. You can do a lot of sightseeing and you may obsess less about the cycle that way than you would have if you were home and working. Also, you have fewer responsibilities to worry about and can concentrate on your cycle.
Over the last 13 years, we have treated patients from all over the world USA, UK, Australia, Middle East , Kenya, Nigeria and Singapore. Our patients have been surprised and pleased at the convenience that our system offers them . In fact, many feel that it is easier to be treated at Malpani Infertility Clinic, than to take treatment in their own home city . In addition, taking off 10 to 14 days in a relaxed setting, where you can bond with your partner and with us can only help promote an optimal outcome. You can also fly down to see the Taj Mahal, or get an ayurvedic massage in Kerala to melt your stress away.
A complete IVF cycle at our clinic costs only US $ 4000 - and this is all-inclusive of all medical procedures, including lab tests, scans, egg pickup and embryo transfer. The approximate total costs of all the medicines used for superovulation for one complete cycle is about US $ 1000 more. A complete cycle of donor egg IVF costs US $ 7500 only ( including payment for the egg donor). Embryo adoption costs US $ 5000 only.
We provide a package deal which includes ALL costs, rather than add on costs for individual services ( such as scans , facility fees and lab services ) which many other clinics do ! This helps patients to know what their TOTAL cost will be upfront.
As an added service to our patients, we now accept payment at the clinic using international credit cards
( Visa, MasterCard or American Express).
Travelling all the way to India for IVF treatment can be a difficult decision for many couples - especially those who have never been to India before. Here are some guidelines from one of our patients from the US, Fiona , which may help you to make a well-informed decision.
" I found out about the Malpani Infertility Clinic by searching the internet. My husband and I had found out about the costs of IVF in Louisiana, USA and due to the fact that our health insurance does not cover anything related to infertility so we knew that it would be expensive. It wasn't about not being able to afford it but more about not wanting to pay so much money to basically line the doctors/hospitals pocket. Coming from the UK, we find the American health system, in terms of cost, a bit of a nightmare. My research then started on countries that we knew offered IVF at reduced costs, such as Greece, Spain and India. I sent off emails to various clinics within these three countries and judged them by the response I received. I was amazed by the apparent lack of response from many clinics, and some provided such poor information that I didn't bother with them any further. The Malpani Clinic was prompt, informative, friendly and very patient. Further investigation by various reports on the internet reassured me of their good reputation and an internet friend of mine based in Mumbai also assured me of their credibility.
My expectations of Indian doctors was quite high. We have many doctors in the UK and USA that have come from India or Pakistan and that were also educated in their home countries so I figured that if my research was thorough then I would not be disappointed. My husband and I are an educated and professional couple so our view on such things may be different. I would not be surprised by people not knowing this and viewing such countries as 'third world' as such by nothing more than their own ignorance.
I am presently living in New Orleans in Louisiana. I moved here about 4 years ago from the UK, where I was born. I studied in Aberdeen for my BA Degree in Business Studies, which when completed I used for a couple of jobs within the Oil Industry. Two years prior to my departures to the U.S. I changed careers and became a College Lecturer in Business Administration, a job that I just adored. My British fiancée got a job in the U.S. and I moved with him where we married shortly after, I am presently studying for my BSc in Geosciences. I have been trying to conceive for 30 months and have had many consultations with specialists in New Orleans. This has involved the following: HSG, 2 IUI's and a laparoscopy. I became pregnant with my first IVF performed by the Malpanis but unfortunately lost it but am hoping that my next attempt is successful.
Yes , Westerners do have a poor opinion of India but that is due to what they see on the television, they are not educated about India via any other medium. But saying that, I would say that I personally was shocked by some of what I saw on my visit; after my treatment we toured for 2 weeks around Rajasthan and Delhi and were horrified by some of our sights. For example, the train station at Delhi was in my mind atrocious with an overpowering smell of urine, piles of excrement on the tracks and rats in plain view. We are probably an over-zealous nation (UK and USA) with our control of germs, we like things clean and out of sight so to see the things I mentioned are very off-putting. And then there is the poverty, and I can see how for some it would be very distressing.
I must say that I got used to it and now have a great affection for Mumbai and its people. As for the Clinic I cannot praise it enough after all it aided me in achieving my goal. It does sit within a non-descript looking building but once in the office you notice how nicely furnished and clean the surroundings are. The staff are courteous and kind; the Malpani's are wonderful - they explained everything I need to know as many times as I needed to know it. They comforted me when I was feeling unwell and lonely, in times going beyond the call of duty. It is these things that are missing in Western medicine, and I hope that it is not lost in India's effort to become a medical provider to more people around the world. "
India can be an exciting place to visit! We promise to make your trip productive and fruitful ( pun intended) !
