Birla Fertility plans to expand its national and international footprint with over 100 clinics in the next 5 years, with an investment of over Rs 500 crores
18th November 2021, Kolkata: CK Birla Healthcare launched its first comprehensive fertility clinic, Birla Fertility and IVF in West Bengal (Ideal Plaza in Sarat Bose Road). The clinic will offer clinically reliable treatment, a price promise and empathetic and trustworthy care to its patients. This launch adds to the existing presence of Birla Fertility and IVF (BFI) across Delhi, Gurugram and Lucknow.
With a legacy of over 50 years of delivering high quality healthcare, the CK Birla Group currently has hospitals across Kolkata, Jaipur, Gurugram and Delhi. Supported by state-of-the-art medical infrastructure and technology, these hospitals have pioneered several firsts and set many milestones in India’s healthcare landscape over the last five decades. The CK Birla Group already operates two iconic healthcare institutions in Kolkata: CMRI- The Calcutta Medical Research Institute and BMB- BM Birla Heart Research Centre, the first cardiac superspeciality hospital in the East India. With Birla Fertility and IVF, their newest brand and venture, the Group aims to be a global leader in fertility care with a vision to transform the future of fertility through outstanding clinical outcomes, research and innovation.
Speaking on the occasion, Avanti Birla, Founder, said “We are committed to delivering quality and patient-centered healthcare. Birla Fertility will strengthen this commitment further by supporting every couple in their journey, with clinical excellence and compassion. Fertility treatment is not just about IVF, it’s about a more holistic approach to promote good fertility health and treatment. “All Heart. All Science” means clinical excellence and compassionate care.”
Commenting on the launch of the new facility, Akshat Seth, CEO CK Birla Healthcare said, ‘’While India is home to 23 million couples with fertility related problems, less than 1% seek medical evaluation for their issues, primarily due to a lack of awareness. At Birla Fertility our endeavour is to build awareness and access to reliable fertility treatment. After Kolkata, we plan to expand to other major cities and towns in West Bengal to build a network of 8 to 10 centres in the State. In order to reiterate our commitment in spreading fertility awareness in communities across the country, we will offer free OPD consultations.’’
Dr. (Col) Prof. Pankaj Talwar VSM, Head of Medical Services, Birla Fertility & IVF added,” Contrary to popular belief, fertility is an issue which affects both men and women, and our brand focus will be on creating awareness around this. In addition to IVF treatment, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of fertility treatments. This includes male infertility treatments, and advanced facilities for genetic screening, diagnostics, laparoscopic gynecological procedures and donor services. We are also very pleased to be able to offer fertility preservation services, which include those for cancer patients. Next in our line of treatment options will be the launch of a pioneering programme in consultation with Oncologists: Ovarian Tissue Freezing for younger cancer patients. Our clinical approach is unique in its focus on improving the overall fertility health of couples by providing multi-disciplinary care under one roof: our team of Nutritionists, Counsellors, Endocrinologists, Andrologists work seamlessly alongside our Fertility experts.”
During the discussion, doctors told that even the problem due to hormonal dis-balance and other factors like cancer are also factored in their treatment. DNA and genetic disorders in sperm or egg are also taken care of as per guidelines of the law and protocols in the country.
Dr. Souren Bhattacharya, Consultant and Centre Head, Birla Fertility & IVF, Kolkata said, ‘’Our clinics will open up a world of possibilities for couples, making quality care more accessible, locally. With our cutting-edge equipment and modern facilities, this clinic will be a one stop destination for IVF and other infertility treatments, not only for patients in Kolkata but also other parts of West Bengal, Bihar, North East and Bangladesh. Our price promise ensures accessibility to a wider market.”
