From the staff
Despite the fact that Ginemed has grown from a small family-run clinic in Seville into an internationally respected clinic with centres in Valencia and Lisbon it has not lost its dedication to patient care, international patients often say that visiting the clinic is like being at home. We not only strive to improve the lives of our patients but also the wider scientific community, with an active training programme and co-founding the University of Seville´s Masters in Assisted Reproduction. Our laboratory is at the forefront of scientific advances having been the first in Spain to have a High Resolution Microscope and more recently developing new vitrification system.
