Save Your Heart and Your Bank Account

Heart surgery can break the bank. An American heart bypass procedure can cost a patient over $144,000. Patients are finding medical tourism a more sensible option, with an Indian heart bypass procedure only costing around $5,200.

In Vitro Maturation (IVM)

In Vitro Maturation is the process where eggs or ovum from a woman's ovaries are removed and allowed to mature in a laboratory. Unlike IVF, in IVM the egg cells are immature when they are collected. This means that women have to take fewer ovary stimulating drugs during the egg harvesting process as compared to traditional IVF procedures.

The chances of successful pregnancy using IVM are the same as that of IVF. The eggs are collected at earlier stages – they must at least be in the early tertiary stages to be viable using IVM. These egg cells are then placed in a dish and inside an incubator for up to two days. Once the eggs mature, they are fertilized with sperm cells and the resulting embryos are transferred to the woman's uterus.
