Who are we?
We are a boutique fertility clinic, as opposed to a
large-scale clinical department, and proudly offer you strictly tailored
treatments and personalised care – everything that you would expect from a
highly specialised and unique clinic. Life Clinic is lead by
Dr Dimitri Papanikolaou, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist specialised in
Reproductive Medicine and Reproductive Immunology. He is pioneer in practices
that are now popular trends in the IVF community, such as low dose stimulation,
longer stimulation protocols, ovarian support with supplements and supportive
treatments, natural cycle applications and treating immunological problems
From the onset of Dr Dimitri's career he paid special attention to
the benefits of personalised medicine. The cornerstone to the success in his
work is his belief that, “we must treat individuals, not illnesses”. This
approach was proven to be very effective. It resulted in high satisfaction
rates and has helped couples to reach their goal more easily, safely, and at a
lower final cost. It is an approach that is widely accepted nowadays.
What do we do differently?
It is important for us to find the reason for a patient's
infertility problem, and then to recommend a specific solution for the problem,
rather than embark immediately on IVF and hoping for the best. For this reason,
our services are, as we have said, strictly tailored made, in response to each
patient’s individual status, problems and needs. The personalised medicine,
highly experienced staff, together with the top laboratory conditions and our
own protocols, makes the real difference in our patients satisfaction and
How can we help you?
Simply put, our expertise is difficult to find anywhere
else. If you have an infertility problem, particularly if you have experienced
repetitive IVF treatment failures, recurrent miscarriages, if you suspect
immune-related fertility issues or have been labelled with ‘unexplained
infertility‘, please get in contact us. Dr
Dimitri has over 18 years of expertise in reproductive immunology and with him
you can be assured of the highest chances of success. You have specific
individual needs that can’t be resolved with a standard ‘one-size-fits-all‘
treatment solution. Your success lies in a ‘holistic’ and personalised diagnostic approach where everything
about your fertility is considered and a specific plan of action and course of
fertility treatment are developed for you.
