With the drizzle of technology fructifying the infertility treatment industry, millions of couples who were desperately desirous for a child but had no chance of having their own, are today proud parents. More than any other infertility treatment, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) has come a long way since its invention in 1978, enhancing its success rates in tandem with technological advancement. Besides being one of the best options for achieving a successful pregnancy & a healthy baby, IVF also helps diagnose the villain behind unexplained infertility, which eventually helps the couple to take the next step like ICSI, donor egg/sperm or even surrogacy. However, it requires certain expertise to ensure that all the avenues of IVF have been explored before moving on to these next levels.

This is where Dr. Kaberi Banerjee, Medical Director, Advanced Fertility and Gynaecology Centre (AFGC), enters the picture with her solid reputation for turning couples who have undergone multiple failed IVF cycles into success stories. Having all the necessary ultramodern equipment and specialists who were trained by the World’s best institutes, this one stop state-of-the-art fertility centre in the heart of South Delhi treats every patient with a holistic approach and a treatment plan customized to the hilt. This strategy has facilitated the centre to achieve an impressive overall pregnancy outcome of 50-60 percent in the first attempt and around 80-90 percent in the second/third attempt, which is considered extremely high in the IVF industry.

In most centres, important procedures are handed over to juniors to manage the crowd, which takes a marked toll on the procedure’s results. However, Dr. Kaberi takes care of all the crucial tasks herself, despite having highly qualified professionals at her centre. She personally conducts the first consultation with the couples to learn their history clearly, decide which treatment would be most beneficial for them and tailor make a treatment strategy according to the individual’s particular needs. For instance, studying the previous treatments of patients who have undergone many failed IVF cycles helps her to pinpoint what can be done additionally to improve the results.

Similarly, performing the internal scan & trans vaginal scan with her own hands helps Dr. Kaberi to diagnose minute yet critical factors like uterine, ovarian & tubal defects the failure to identify which would lead to the failure of IVF cycles. “I have come across patients who have gone through years of fertility treatment but couldn’t conceive because they have missed out a fibroid, polyp or hydrosalpinx,” explains Dr.Kaberi.

Based on these details, she maps out a treatment strategy and counsels the patients regarding various treatment options & their respective success rates. “Some patients can be cured just with medicine, others need laparoscopy, IVF, antitubular treatment, donor egg or even surrogacy,” adjoins Dr.Kaberi. Having taken special training in Embryo Transfer from UK, unsurprisingly she doesn’t delegate crucial surgical procedures like Egg Retrieval and Embryo Transfer even to her senior doctors but handles them herself.
Beating All Odds

Despite meticulous egg retrieval, laboratory procedures and embryo transfers, IVF cycles fail due to poor egg/sperm quality or uterine lining. To beat the odds in such cases, AFGC optimizes the outcomes in IVF cycles by introducing modifications such as Optimized Simulation Protocol (for selection of best oocytes),Best Sperm Selection for ICSI, Hysteroscopy (to diagnose minute uterine abnormalities and cleaning it to improve uterine receptivity), Intravenous Immunoglobulin (increase the expression of inhibitory receptors), Vitamins & Antioxidants (improve egg/sperm quality), Laser Hatching (for better implantation of embryo), ERA (detecting the best endometrium phase for embryo implantation), PGS/PGD (detects abnormal embryos), Optimization of Transfer Day (should be individualized for each patient) and above all, Dr. Kaberi’s own meticulous transfer technique. The proper blend of some or all of these techniques helps the centre to give a high take home baby rates to its patients.

Despite such technical expertise, Dr. Kaberi is conscious about using only the established techniques that produces excellent results, rather than increasing the treatment cost by using an ultra-modern technology that’s role is yet to be established. The centre is also extremely sensitive about patient’s privacy, be it allowing no one else to be present during Dr. Kaberi’s initial consultation with the couple or strictly banning the staff to discuss about the patient in public. “Many a times, our patients’ relatives come behind their back and inquire about the patient’s treatment. We politely decline to share the information,” adds Dr. Kaberi. Similarly, AFGC vests immense emphasis on double-checking the patient’s sperm/egg at every step to ascertain that there is no chance of mix up among the gametes of different patients.

The Voyage

Commenced her career in 1994, Dr. Kaberi climbed through various stages of corporate ladder from being a practitioner to consultant and the Head of IVF unit at various medical institutions across India and UK, where she worked with renowned IVF experts like Dr. Mohamed Taranissi. She decided to quit her lucrative job and established AFGC in 2014, as Dr. Kaberi believed that she could make her own decisions and perform better if she could free herself from the constraints of corporate world.

Having achieved a preeminent position in the industry with an astounding fertility success rate, today AFGC has established two centres in Delhi (CR Park and Noida) that are doing close to a whopping 50 cycles per month. AFGC aims to further spread its wings across Delhi NCR region (East Delhi & Gurgaon), followed by India’s main metropolitan cities and then to neighbouring countries like Afghanistan, Sudan and CIS countries and soar to greater heights.
