Fertility clinic in Panama thrives through innovation


Assisted reproduction treatments based on innovation and state-of-the-art technology are Panama Fertility's formula to help couples struggling to have children.

The World Health Organization has identified the inability of couples to become parents after a year or more of unprotected sex as a disorder, one that the professionals at Panama Fertility have been treating successfully for more than 30 years.

"It is important to offer each couple a solution appropriate to their diagnosis. Each patient needs a different treatment, which is why that when it comes to fertility, it is more necessary to work on the search for precise and personalized medicine," a member of the clinic's staff, Dr. Mario Vega Croker, told EFE.

He said that Panama Fertility uses approaches that range from the simplest to the most complex, such as artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, induced ovulation, egg donation and the freezing of eggs and embryos.

Assisted reproduction techniques are evolving to deliver results more quickly with greater safety, the specialist said.

As an example, Vega Coker pointed to Panama Fertility's "Bebe Contigo" (Baby With You) program, which offers couples reimbursement of up 100 percent if pregnancy does not come within a predetermined period of time.

With some 10,000 babies, Panama Fertility's success rate is "very high," making the clinic a benchmark for the region and beyond, and international patients account for around 20 percent of the total, he said.
