Samitivej has treated Thai and Foreign national patients from more than 38 countries and has had a success rate of up to 44% (Calculated through analysis of patients seeking fertility treatment, as well as successful pregnancies and safe births taking place at Samitivej Hospitals only).

Technology used in fertility treatments
We make use of the following diagnostic techniques: pelvic examination with a vaginal ultrasound scan; Hysterosalpingography; sperm analysis; sperm selection; hormonal assessment; assisted reproductive technologies, including IVF, E.T., ICSI, GIFT; sperm retrieval; and TESE in cases of male castration. Additionally, we provide surgery to reverse female castration (ovariectomy) as well as a number of other innovations in the field of medical science, as follows:
In vitro maturation (IVM): The first of its kind available in Thailand, this technique has been researched and developed at Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital, where we have achieved a completely safe form of treatment that also closely mirrors nature. This means that patients experience none of the pain or risk that can be associated with hormonal stimulation.
Improved fertility rates and increased chance of conception with calcium ionophore technique. This substance is used alongside assisted reproductive technologies at Samitivej after being researched and developed to be successful in helping couples conceive.
Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS): This involves analysis of chromosome numerical abnormalities and potential embryo irregularities such as short-arm pairs of chromosomes that could increase a child’s risk of being born with Down syndrome.
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD): Once a genetic irregularity has been detected, healthy embryos - free from genetic issues - can be transplanted back into the womb.
Uterine receptivity test: This involves assessing the readiness of the women’s uterus prior to embryo implantation, including analysis of all 238 genes associated with uterine maturation and screening of the mitochondrion, which are the energy sources of embryonic cells, and can therefore increase the chance of successful conception by up to 50%.
