What makes a successful fertility clinic? What should you be looking for? We are often told by our patients that they wish they had found us earlier in their journey, that we do things differently. But what does that actually mean for you, what is it that we do that makes the difference?
We take pride in going the extra mile for our patients. We work hard to provide a fertility service like no other, to create a truly successful fertility clinic. How do we do this? Firstly, to us you are certainly not just a number, not just another cycle of IVF, not just another semen analysis. We investigate, treat and care for you as a couple, and guide you on your fertility journey together, tailoring any necessary treatment (and often there is no treatment needed!) to you. Secondly, we have some the world’s leading minds in both male and female fertility giving you access to the best of the best. Our fully integrated expert team means that we take care of both of you from initial assessment and investigations to diagnosis and treatment. Thirdly, having this expert team all under one roof means that we can investigate both partners equally. Historically, the approach to fertility care was to focus on the female partner with little or no focus on the man despite the knowledge that 50% of fertility problems lie with the woman and 50% with the man. Having access to exceptionally experienced and qualified doctors in both men and women’s fertility, combined with a service that meets the highest standards, makes Fertility Solutions a successful fertility clinic like no other.
So, who is part of Fertility Solutions?
Claire is a consultant embryologist with over 24 years’ experience in assisted conception and is our medical director at fertility solutions. She has worked and trained in some of the most successful IVF units in the world. Claire specialises in Male fertility and believes that in an assisted conception industry that focuses heavily on the female partner it is now essential to turn our attention to the male partner. Claire set up fertility solutions with Mr Ramsay to provide Men with a facility first to test but ultimately then improve their fertility to increase the chances of a natural conception and also if necessary to improve the outcomes of Assisted conception (IVF, IUI and ICSI).
Claire’s mission is to bring male fertility to the forefront of patient’s minds to the benefit of the couple. Claire focusses on investigating the man first in the couple’s fertility journey with the aim of assisting natural conception.
Mr Ramsay has been a Consultant Urologist at Hammersmith, Charing Cross and Chelsea & Westminster Hospitals since 1988. He works closely with the fertility units, both at Hammersmith and Chelsea, and is also a visiting urologist to fertility clinics in Bucks, Sussex, and Central London. Research interests and publications include methods and outcomes of sperm retrieval, vasectomy reversal and the genetic causes of infertility. Mr Ramsay is a UK leading male fertility specialist, and widely regarded as the leading expert in this field. Men with presumed fertility problems require individual care, diagnosis and advice, otherwise they feel abandoned by the doctors who can do so much for their partners, and sometimes they feel guilty that there seems to be so little they can do to help the situation. Mr Ramsay’s practice in men’s fertility aims to answer three important questions. Firstly, is there a ‘male factor’ problem? Secondly, can we diagnose a cause? Thirdly, can we offer straight-forward (evidence-based) treatment? Mr Ramsay is the mainstay of our successful fertility clinic.
