The Fertility Institute of Murcia (IMFER): Infertility treatment and egg donation in Spain
IMFER (Instituto Murciano de Fertilidad) was created in 1998 with the aim to solve problems of human sterility by considering all the contributing factors. Its founders have been working together in the field of assisted reproduction for many years: Dr. Antonio Callizo Gutiérrez, Obstetrician Gynaecologist, has specialised in infertility problems since the beginning of his career 27 years ago, while Dr. Miguel Ángel Fernández Pérez, thanks to his long career and over 15 years experience, was accredited as Senior Clinical Embryologist by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE).
Even before the foundation of the clinic, IMFER had already put in place an egg donation programme. From their collaboration, the first baby conceived by IVF in the region of Murcia was born in 1997.
Thanks to our results and our seriousness, we have been appointed partner by regional public health service, medical companies and private insurances. We also collaborate with the University of Murcia (working on a few studies), with a European association supporting patients and an acupuncturist specialized in fertility troubles.
IMFER is a medium size clinic. Nevertheless, we perform all the innovative techniques authorized by Spanish Law (Vitrification, IMSI, eSet, blastocyst, etc.).
Since then every scientific discovery related to assisted reproduction has found an application at IMFER, which allows them to offer their patients all the techniques currently authorised in Spain. IMFER are one of the very few clinics in Spain offering IMSI, a technique particularly useful for the treatment of male infertility.
Treatments & techniques: IVF, IVF with donor eggs, IVF with donor sperm, ICSI-IMSI, PGD, sperm washing for HIV and Hepatitis C, Vitrification of oocytes and embryos, blastocyst culture, assisted hatching, eSet, Embryogen, SpermSlow, Chinese acupuncture sessions, etc
In order to provide an international service, IMFER has a department devoted exclusively to overseas patients with two international coordinators who are in charge of managing each case, replying to questions, giving instructions, in a prompt and timely manner. Through permanent contact by phone or email, they act as liaison between you and the medical team, supporting you in each phase of the treatment.
