GUWAHATI, Feb 21 � Social worker Binny Yanga formally inaugurated the Hayat IVF Centre at the Hayat Hospital premises recently.
Yanga who heads Oju Welfare Association (OWA), an NGO that works for the education, health and upbringing of socially disadvantaged sections of society, lauded the efforts of Hayat in providing quality healthcare to the people of the North-east. �I hope that common people of the North-east will be benefited by the state-of-the-art sophistication of this hospital and there will be no need to go outside the State to avail super-specialty medical facilities,� she said.
Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Both man and woman may be infertile or sub-fertile, and the couple�s infertility arises from the combination of these conditions.
�If conservative medical treatment fails to achieve a full-term pregnancy, the physician may suggest the patient to undergo, intra-uterine insemination (IUI), invitro fertilization (IVF) and related techniques (ICSI,ZIFT,GIFT) called Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Among the various medical causes of infertility, stress and obesity are said to be the burning causes of infertility,� Dr Arpita Sarma, chief IVF consultant of Hayat IVF centre, said. The centre also provides counselling to couples in navigating the maze of infertility.
Dr Sunita Tendulwadkar, noted IVF consultant from Ruby Hall Clinic, Pune, Haider Hussain, chief editor, Asomiya Pratidin, and Dr Umesh Sharma, Vice-Chancellor, Shankardev University of Medical Sciences, also addressed the gathering.
