The IVF Centers Prof. Zech are one of the leading European clinic groups when it comes to treating unwanted childlessness. The group’s headquarters are in Bregenz, where Prof. Herbert Zech founded the first Austrian private IVF clinic in 1984. Back then, he already wanted to meet the most stringent requirements regarding the quality of his work and the health of all persons involved, according to the principle: Committed to excellence.
The IVF Centers Prof. Zech enjoy worldwide renown in the field of establishing and successfully using new techniques in treating unwanted childlessness as well as further developing medical options in assisted reproductive technology (ART) in order to enhance the couple’s chances of conceiving and delivering a healthy child as early as the “first treatment-cycle” if possible. In their clinics in Austria and the neighboring countries they have thus pioneered inter alia the procedure of culturing embryos to the blastocyst stage, the diagnostics of embryos by means of EmbryoScope and 24Sure Genetic Screening (new techniques for detailed analysis and assessment of embryonic development), the establishment of new criteria to decide which sperm should fertilize the egg cell, the optimization of freezing egg cells and embryos using asceptic vitrification (novel freezing procedure, where cells are converted into a “glass-like" state), the standardization of procedures to allow the objective and reliable evaluation of follicular development and many more.
Due to their commitment to excellence, being at their patients’ disposal 7 days a week has always been a matter of course to the staff of the IVF Centers Prof. Zech. This is of major importance because:
- The optimum time for follicular puncture can’t be predicted and may vary significantly from patient to patient
- Due to the choice of blastocysts and the prolonged culture of embryos up to 5 days it goes without saying that embryo transfer has to be performed according to the individual situation on any day of the week!
Committed to excellence!
To date, this is the guiding principle that is valid for all the state of the art IVF centers of the group. Each of the centers stands for the responsible planning and effective performance of IVF treatments by highly trained teams of specialists. We understand that childlessness is an issue that affects the most private aspects of a relationship. That is why we attach the utmost importance to the well-being of the couples in a caring atmosphere.
Our mission - our guiding principle
We are striving for excellence in every aspect of the care we provide in order to help couples conceive and deliver a healthy baby as early as the “first treatment-cycle” if possible.
