It’s the First center in Gujarat & in India to start in Oct 1993 with IVF Testtube baby with Extra-corporeal fertilization outside the human body to produce a viable embryo that can grow into a human being after transfer into uterus.

(N.B.The center in Surat started even before 1994 plague epidemic which caused world wide panic. This was the only center in Gujarat at that time and centers in Ahmadabad started in 1996.)

First IVF baby at Ahmadabad was reported at Ahmadabad OG society in 1997, whereas the First IVF baby of Gujarat was born in Surat in December 1995 from the team lead by Dr Nimish R Shelat and Dr Ranjanee N Shelat, reported by Times of India, on record of Surat OBGYN Society for advanced development in the state of Gujarat which had faced the panicky epidemic just an year ago. This center remains the epitome of scientific challenges and breakthroughs that were achieved despite all odds, that did not escape due recognition.The American Biographical Research Institute Research Association (ABIRA) Conferred its most prestigious World Lifetime Achievement award in year 2000 through the Govt of Gujarat , Ministry of health , from the hands of Honorable Health minister Shri Ashok the 7th National Congress of Juvenile and adolescent Gynecology and Obstetrics, at Surat in January 2000, to the pioneer of IVF technologies on the map of Gujarat , Dr Nimish R Shelat.

It was the 9th Center for IVF in India at that time in 1993 apart from Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru. When today there are over 1000 IVF centers all over India. In fact the first advance reproductive technology carried was GIFT Gamete Intra fallopian transfer in 1991 with IN vivo fertilization, after egg retrieval from ovaries added to sperm preparation inserted into fallopian tubes by Laparoscopy, at this center. 

Since the desire to procreate is universal, infertile couples through the centuries have searched the known and unknown in the hope of fulfilling their frustrated desire for parenthood. Ivf Center Surat

              In vitro fertilization (or fertilization; IVF) is a process by which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: in vitro (“in glass”). The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilize them in a liquid in a laboratory. The fertilized egg (zygote) is cultured for 2–6 days in a growth medium and is then implanted in the same or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.

IVF / ET Program Step – by – Step :

  1. Hormonal Stimulation
  2. Monitoring The Maturity of Eggs
  3. Egg Collection
  4. Semen Specimen Collection
  5. Fertilization and Cleavage
  6. Embryo Transfer
  7. Blood Tests

Why is sperm recovery necessary?

Some men are able to produce sperm in their testicles but for a number of reasons these sperm are notpresent in the ejaculate. This may be because a blockage is stopping the sperm from passing through the tubules.

Are recovered sperm normal?

Sperm recovered from the epididymis will be very similar to those that are ejaculated, except that they will be immature and therefore unlikely to be able to fertilise an egg at IVF. Sperm recovered from the testes will be even less mature than those recovered from the epididymis and so will also not be capable of fertilising an egg at IVF.

How do I Prepare for the operation?

You will be asked to shave your testicles the night before the operation. You will also need to not eat anything from midnight and drink anything from 7 am on the day the operation.

What is the best way to use these sperm for treatment?

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) offers the best chance of gaining fertilisation with these immature sperm. Please see the relevant ICSI information sheets.

How will I know if I need sperm recovery?

A semen analysis showing the presence of no sperm at all (Azoospermia) will indicate that further tests should be carried out to determine whether sperm recovery is an option. These tests will include a blood test to check your hormone levels, an examination of your testes and a blood test to see if you have any genetic problems. If these tests are inconclusive you may also require a testicular biopsy which would determine whether sperm production is occurring in your testes.

What dose sperm recovery involve?

There are a number of sperm recovery techniques available:

Microepididymal Sperm Aspiration (MESA)
Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA)
Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA)
Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)

What anaesthetic?

For PESA and TESA you will be given a local anesthetic and sedation during the procedure. For TESE a general anaesthetic is required.

Recovering after the operation.

If you have had a local anaesthetic with sedation you will be allowed home a couple of hours after the operation. You will not be allowed to drive or work for 24 hours, so you will need to arrange transport home after the operatin. You may have some bruising, minor swelling and discomfort for a few days after the operation.

When will the recovery occur in relation to the ICSI cycle?

Sperm recovery is usually carried out partner taking her drugs to get started on an ICSI cycle. This means that we can be sure we have sperm stored before the ICSI cycle is stated.

Occasionally the sperm recovery may be lined up to coincide with the day of the egg collection in the ICSI cycle.
