The IVF unit of the hospital provides a wide range of infertility services and specialist gynaecological services in a relaxed, caring and supportive environment.

In 1999, Dr. Paul Owusu Baah after working for some years realized that a fertility unit would be an integral part in the treatment of patients hence the birth of our IVF unit. Since then, the unit has combined professional care and meticulous laboratory techniques which have resulted in high pregnancy rate for couples who present with infertility problems.

Infertility can be defined as failure to conceive despite regular unprotected intercourse for one year. Infertility is classified into two types:
