Turning a Dream into Reality
Svitlana TURBANIST, Fertility Specialist, Ultrasonographer, 16 years of experience:
“I was still a medical student when I heard about the world’s first successful IVF procedure. It was then when I realized that fertility science is truly the job of the doctors with the God-given talent. Possibilities offered by such a high-end profession were truly impressive, however, it looked almost like a dream to me back then. Fortunately, reproductive technologies have eventually become my life. Significant improvements have been made in this field over the years. The number of successful pregnancies is constantly increasing. We are now able to avoid complications such as ovarian hyperstimulation which happens very rarely these days. New ways of embryo diagnostics are emerging. Cryopreservation has also an incredible potential. Many couples who have preserved embryos after the first successful IVF attempt returned to the clinic to have their second baby. Every successful pregnancy is our staff’s biggest joy, for ISIDA is distinguished not only by the professional excellence of its doctors but also friendly attitude and true empathy toward each patient. Our profession comes to rescue in the most difficult situations and in the greatest sorrow. If people are destined to have children, we intend to do our very best to help them. Sometimes it seems that the representatives of our profession are close to the Creator himself... This is why it is a huge responsibility.
