From the staff

UNICA’s Brno clinic was one of the first clinics for reproductive medicine in the Czech Republic. The clinic has been treating infertile patients since 1994. The goal of fertility doctors from UNICA is to apply the most up-to-date medical procedures and to guide and support the patients in their dream of becoming a mother.

The clinic in Prague came as a natural addition in order to accommodate our patients coming from the many European countries that turn us for help.

UNICA employs specialists for even the most complicated cases. We offer personal approach to each and every patient – you will receive support in your native language and the clinic’s consultants will help you reduce stress connected with travelling and commuting to our clinic.

UNICA’s success rates are audited by the clinic’s academic associate. Moreover, the clinic has been cooperating with medical universities and thanks to that was able to build an impressive database of young oocyte donors. All patients of the clinic can select a donor that best meets their physical characteristics. Egg donors availability enables the treatment to start immediately.
