CREA (IVF Valencia) is a private fertility clinic established in 1993 that has been a pioneer in reproductive medicine for over 20 years. The clinic was completely renovated in 2010 and it features three advanced technology laboratories (IVF lab, andrology lab and general analyses lab), two operating theatres and five single en-suite rooms for patients. The clinic employs seven fertility doctors and six embryologists with 10-year’s experience of which three embryologists are accredited by ESHRE. Altogether, the clinic works with more than 40 professionals, many of them with 25 years of experience in the field. CREA’s medical staff is a close-knit and passionate team.
In 2018 the clinic’s doctors performed 1,217 treatment cycles, of which 25.2% were egg donation cycles and 74.8% were IVF with own eggs cycles. It is easy to see that the clinic is very effective when it comes to treating patients with their own genetic material. It is great news for patients who have not decided to pursue the egg donation journey yet.
CREA (IVF Valencia) holds ISO 9001:2018 accreditation (ISO 9001 since 2004 for the laboratories) and UNE 179007. The latter is a quality standard developed by AENOR and ASEBIR to promote and improve quality and safety in assisted reproduction laboratories. Only 10% of Spanish IVF clinics have this certification. The clinic also belongs to multiple international fertility organizations and medical associations, like ESHRE or ASRM.
