·Reproductive Endocrine Disorders
We have rich experience in treating patients with Reproductive Endocrine Disorders, such as Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, premature ovary insufficiency, abnormal uterus bleeding, hyperprolactinemia etc. We try our best to give patients both health and fertility support.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): We offer integrated management to PCOS patients with their endocrine and metabolic problems, which can lead to infertility.
Endometriosis: We provide multiple, individualized treatment to endometriosis patients with infertility, including medical treatment, surgical treatment and IVF.
Premature Ovary Insufficience (POI): We give both psychological and medical supports to POI patients, as well as the highly individualized treatment for infertility and fertility preservation.
We provide a wide range of assisted reproductive technologies, including controlled ovarian stimulation, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)/pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS), embryo transfer, egg, sperm and embryo cryopreservation and fertility preservation, surgical and medical management of male infertility. All of them achieve excellent outcomes consistently. The delivering results are among the highest in the nation.
IVF/ICSI: We offer leading-edge assisted reproductive technology (ART) services, including IVF/ICSI and embryo transfer in a highly individualized, private setting.
PGD/PGS: During IVF, we offer PGD or PGS testing to identify genetic or chromosomal abnormalities in the embryos. Embryos free of genetic defects are selected to transfer into the mother’s womb, helping the family get rid of perplex hereditary disease.
Fertility preservation: Fertility preservation, supervised by ethic, is the effort to help cancer patients or single young women with diminished ovarian reservation retain their fertility or ability to procreate. We provide the gamete or embryo cryopreservation to these patients before the start of cancer treatment or premature ovarian insufficiency.

The first PGD baby (get rid of the genetic disease) of Zhejiang Province was born in September 26th, 2002.
·Carried out the first selective embryo reduction in multiple gestations via vaginal ultrasound in Zhejiang Province in March, 1996.The successful rate now is about 99%.
·The reproductive medical center approved by the Health Department of Zhejiang province was established in 1997.
·Carried out the first frozen embryo technology in March, 1997, filling the blank area of Zhejiang Province.
·In 2000, the Department of Reproductive endocrinology was approved as key medical subjects by the Health Department of Zhejiang province.
·In 2001, we successfully managed the first PGD diagnose, and the first PGD baby (get rid of the genetic disease) of Zhejiang Province was born in September 26th, 2002.
