From the staff

At IMARA we believe in comprehensive and multi-approach analysis before we begin treatment on a patient. We focus not only on a female patient but also analyse and diagnose the partner. We believe such in-depth analysis should be an integral part of the IVF process. In some cases it is possible to find the cause for infertility, in some cases, it isn’t and then we resort to methods of the assisted reproduction.
