Bangalore Baptist Hospital, one of south India’s leading multi specialty mission hospitals, is all set to inaugurate its State- of- the- Art REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE (IVF) UNIT on 14th January 2012 at its premises in Hebbal.
The Reproductive Medicine Unit (RMU) at Bangalore Baptist Hospital provides comprehensive infertility care, which is rare to find even in medical colleges and Government hospitals. The RMU& IVF Unit provides ISO standard laboratory quality. This is for the first time affordable IVF will make its presence felt in the country.
Dr. K.K.Talwar, Chairman of the Medical Council of India will inaugurate the IVF Unit in the presence of Sri. S.V.Ranganath, Chief Secretary, Govt. of Karnataka and Dr. Suranjan Bhattacharji, Chairman-Governing Board of Baptist Hospital.

The RMU at Baptist Hospital consists of a dedicated team of Doctors, Embryologists and Nurses. Dr. George Korula, Professor and Head of the Department of Reproductive Medicine & IVF Unit at the Bangalore Baptist was formerly head of the reproductive medicine department at the highly reputed Christian Medical College, Vellore. He brings with him a rich experience of over three decades in this field.He has published numerous papers in National & International Journals and has established effective techniques in this specialty.

Bangalore Baptist Hospital pledges to offer State- of- the- Art facilities in a compassionate, supportive and ethical environment. Maintaining a firm code of conduct with regard to patient care and consent, Baptist hospital will provide a holistic and humane approach, focusing on evidence based medicine.

The experienced and qualified professionals at the Bangalore Baptist Hospital have a number of years of teaching and research experience, besides having published many research papers of note. The hospital follows strict guidelines as per the ICMR standards, a practice not seen in every commercial setup.

At Baptist Hospital the teaching faculty have cochrane reviews to their credit and provide comprehensive care and holistic approach to overall fertility management. The Government facilities in this regard are very limited. There is an independent ethical committee at Baptist hospital that will review complex cases and provide the best individual solutions. These facilities are not available even at teaching hospitals.

Unfortunately the Insurance sector does not cover this area and the expenses are quite high in this relatively new field. Hence, Baptist Hospital provides a wide range of options to couples from a wide cross section of the society and socio economic status.
