About the department

The Department of Reproductive Medicine at the Assuta Hospital Tel Aviv offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment of infertility in women and men. For these purposes, the department has in its arsenal a variety of modern, effective methods. The doctors of the department have a particular specialization in the field of in vitro fertilization (IVF). The department is a leader in IVF efficiency at the international level. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Daniel Seidman. He is one of the best specialists in obstetrics, gynecology and artificial insemination in Israel.

Before doctors start treatment of infertility, they establish its cause. To this end, both partners are examined. The first stage is to find out if any of the spouses suffers from an infection, which occurs in a latent form. For this purpose, the laboratory tests are carried out. An important part of the diagnostics is also ultrasound examinations in women, which allow to reveal various pathologies, the elimination of which can significantly improve the reproductive function. In order to diagnose the reproductive function of men, the laboratory analysis of sperm (spermogram) is carried out. It helps to determine whether there is enough active sperm cells in his semen. In addition, a hormonal blood test is performed. In some cases, an ovarian biopsy, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, as well as other clinical examinations are performed. Depending on the examination results and taking into account all clinical indications, an optimal treatment option is prescribed for the couple.
