About Sanatorium Helios

Sanatorium Helios was founded in 1994 and was one of the first centers in the Czech Republic to deal with the diagnosis and treatment of infertility.In 2002 we started cooperation with the most successful IVF center in the world - the Australian Genea Clinic - World leading fertility (formerly Sydney IVF). Thanks to an exclusive license agreement with Genea we have the latest procedures and technologies long before they come into commercial use. Hence we stay ahead of other large centers and give infertile couples a better chance of success sooner than others.You will be able to get your needs through to us easily – our IVF coordinators speak Italian, English and German.We do not prolong your path to the long-desired goal by inefficientmethods. From the very beginning, we strive to find the most effective solution suited just for you.Detailed analysis of sperm count allows us to choose the optimal method to fertilize the eggs (so-called classical IVF, ICSI, PICSI, IMSI). Only a high-quality extended culture allows us to transfer high-quality embryos in the blastocyst stage.We transfer one embryo. We are not afraid to introduce only one embryo, because we stand behind the quality of our culture. We know that the chances of getting pregnant do not increase with the number of introduced embryos but with the number of transfers. We are not afraid of freezing embryos because we know that the procedures we use do not harm the embryo. The method, which is currently used for embryo freezing, has not decreased the pregnancy rate below 50% in the last eighteen months.Thanks to the highly developed freezing method, the fact, which many people had for years hoped for, has become true - we can freeze eggs so that they retain their quality for several years before thawing.We have started to perform pre-implantation genetic diagnosis on 5-6 day-old embryos - blastocysts. Currently, we provide all possible PGD testing using FISH, aCGH and PCR methods. We increase your chances of getting pregnant by more than 15 % thanks to well-performed PGD testing. Using PCR methods does not allow further transmission of very serious illness to the next generation (Huntington’s chorea, cystic fibrosis, some kinds of cancers, etc.)

"Very customer-friendly"
100%Reviewed 05 Sep 2014 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
Very customer-friendly. Quick to start treatment, easy communication via email and phone. In contrast to clinics I visited before very professional in making things easy for me: communicating about the next steps in advance so I could plan well with my work schedule, right information at the right time in the process, and good explanations to my questions.

The result was excellent, too - four embryos so hopefully one of the transfers will be successful. The IVF coordinators, and all the staff, were very supportive which helps a lot in an emotionally charged process.

"I would absolutely, positively do it again."
100%Reviewed 17 Sep 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: IVF with Donor Eggs
The clinic contact (Dr. Kloudova) was patient and informative. She was able to find me an acupuncturist in Brno, who was professional and communicated well. The staff were polite and understanding. Language challenges were minimal and easily overcome. The doctor's bedside manner was great. Dr. Sula made me feel very comfortable with the clinic, and we had success on our second embryo transfer. Pension Luna was very restful, convenient and priced in line with other lodgings, making our stay very low stress. I would absolutely, positively do it again.

AI - Artificial Insemination
 
Blastocyst Transfer

What are Benefits of Extended Culture?

An embryo transferred in the blastocyst stage is more 'mature' and its transfer into the uterus is more physiological - the transfer takes place at a time when the endometrium is perfectly prepared for its adoption. 

The number of embryos for transfer is reduced in order to decrease multiple pregnancies and their risks. However, it is important to select the best quality embryos with good estimated viability – it can be anticipated only when the culture takes long enough (up to 5 to 6 days).

 
Egg Donor
The egg donation programme is designed for women who:
 -  do not produce eggs of their own, or produce only a small quantity. It embraces women whose ovaries have not developed properly, women affected by premature ovarian failure, or older women  during menopause.
- are failing to fertilise or create embryos that are able to sustain an ongoing pregnancy. This group usually consists of women over 40, and women who have undergone repeated unsuccessful IVF cycles with their own eggs. 
-  have a high chance of passing on a serious genetic condition to their children. These women have had detected chromosomal abnormalities (change in the structure or number of chromosomes) or monogenic diseases that can be transmitted to their offspring in genetic tests.
-  underwent surgery during which they had both ovaries removed.

- underwent some types of radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

 
Embryo Freezing

We are using the 3rd generation of vitrification methods. For long time, we have been 

having the same success rate with KETs as with fresh transfers, that is pregnancy in 

more than 50 % of patients.

ICSI - Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection
ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)
The ICSI method is used when the semen analysis parameters are not satisfying, the number of retrieved oocyt is low, their quality is not good, the infertility is caused by immunological factors or in the case of patients whose embryos have to be tested by PCR/aCGH method.

ICSI is a micromanipulative technique in which the embryologist injects sperm into an oocyte by micro pipette. The procedure is done under a microscope using a micromanipulator.

 
IMSI - Intracytoplasmic Morphologically-Selected Sperm Injection
In the IMSI (Intracytoplasmic Morphologically selected Sperm Injection) method, high magnification (> 6000 ×) is used for a thorough morphological selection of the sperm to  be injected into the egg (ICSI).

IMSI method has provided hope for infertile couples  in instances where other assisted reproduction techniques have failed.

 
IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
We do not prolong your path to the long-desired goal by inefficient methods. From the very beginning, we try to find the most effective solution suited just for you.

 

Detailed analysis of sperm count allows us to choose the optimal method to fertilize the eggs (so-called classical IVF, ICSI, PICSI, IMSI).

 

Only a  high-quality extended culture allows us to transfer high-quality embryos in the blastocyst stage.

 

We transfer one embryo. We are not afraid to introduce only one embryo, because we stand behind the quality of our culture. We know that the chances of getting pregnant do not increase with the number of introduced embryos but with the number of transfers.

 
PGD - Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

Sperm - FISH Analysis
 
Surgical Sperm Retrieval
 
TESA - Testicular Sperm Extraction
If there is no sperm in the ejaculate (azoospermia), it is possible to try to obtain the sperm by surgical retrieval. If the transport of sperm between the urethra and the epididymis fails, sperm can be obtained with the MESA technique (micro epididymal sperm aspiration), in which sperm is aspirated from the epididymis.

If the transport of sperm to the epididymis fails, we opt for the TESE technique (testicular sperm extraction) in which a small piece of germinal epithelium is removed. The removed tissue is then processed in the laboratory, and if live sperm are obtained, they can be used for fertilization by the ICSI technique.
