Lanka Hospitals, the internationally-accredited multiple award-winning healthcare provider has reached a milestone with the delivery of the 1,500th IVF baby. Lanka Hospitals’ Fertility Centre made the announcement at an event to mark the occasion recently.

“Lanka Hospitals has remained in the forefront of fertility treatment in Sri Lanka over the last 20 years and enabled couples and families to fulfil their dreams and hopes of conceiving a healthy baby.

“This would not be possible without the team of dedicated and highly experienced professionals at our Fertility Centre and Lanka Hospitals’ state-of-the-art laboratory for fertility treatment,” Lanka Hospitals’ Group Chief Executive Officer Deepthi Lokuarachchi stated.

“Our success rates at Lanka Hospitals have shown that the chances of conceiving a child through IVF and ICSI treatment are very high. It is one of the most advanced and successful methods of addressing complications pertaining to infertility and can significantly increase the chances of conceiving a healthy baby,” Lanka Hospitals Fertility Centre Clinical Embryologist Dr. Madara Ralapanawe stated.

“A couple that could not conceive a child through other fertility procedures can choose IVF or ICSI for conception. IVF and ICSI treatment offer a host of benefits that many other alternative treatment methods would not provide when trying to conceive a baby,” Lanka Hospitals’ Resident Fertility Centre Consultant Gynaecologist and Obstetrician Dr. Nishendra Karunaratne stated.

Lanka Hospitals’ Fertility Centre has been one of the pioneers in IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) and other fertility treatments in Sri Lanka. In addition to IVF treatment, the Fertility Centre at Lanka Hospitals conducts more advanced procedures to improve the chances of a pregnancy such as Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI).

Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (PGT) PGT which refers to the genetic profiling of embryos prior to implantation is another important testing offered by Lanka Hospitals to ensure a healthy baby prior to the fertility treatment process.

Lanka Hospitals is the first hospital in Sri Lanka to be awarded with some of the most prestigious accreditations in the world for its healthcare service standards including the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation 7th edition and the world-respected Medical Tourism Certification from the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA).

Furthermore, Lanka Hospitals Diagnostics (LHD) is the only Sri Lankan laboratory to be accredited by the prestigious laboratory accreditation body, The College of American Pathologists (CAP).
