Thumos Health Center

According to Wikipedia, In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a technique in which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the woman's womb, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova (eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg (zygote) is then transferred to the patient's uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy.

The term in vitro, from the Latin root meaning in glass, is used, because early biological experiments involving cultivation of tissues outside the living organism from which they came, were carried out in glass containers such as beakers, test tubes, or petri dishes. Today, the term in vitro is used to refer to any biological procedure that is performed outside the organism it would normally be occurring in, to distinguish it from an in vivo procedure, where the tissue remains inside the living organism within which it is normally found. A colloquial term for babies conceived as the result of IVF, test tube babies, refers to the tube-shaped containers of glass or plastic resin, called test tubes, that are commonly used in chemistry labs and biology labs. However in vitro fertilisation is usually performed in the shallower containers called petri dishes. (Petri-dishes may also be made of plastic resins.) However, the IVF method of Autologous Endometrial Coculture is actually performed on organic material, but is yet called in vitro.

Fertility at Thumos Health Center is proud of its focus on women's health issues and fertility. Bryan Abel and Ganit Kriel invest wholeheartedly in their fertility patients' well-being. Bryan and Ganit work hand-in-hand with the IVF specialists. Acupuncture is performed twice on the IVF patient, in separate pre-op and post-op sessions, before and after the patient's embryo is implanted.

Thumos Health Center has made great gains in the area of in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. Bryan Abel and Ganit Kriel work in conjunction with local fertility centers to help treat IVF patients. Obstetrician-gynecologist specialists have begun to recognize the effectiveness of an integrated Eastern/Western approach to their patients' fertility.
