Dr. Hrishikesh Pai is known for the best IVF procedures and all infertility treatment methods such as:


Dr. Pai is the first infertility doctor in India to perform In vitro fertilization (IVF). The procedure involves retrieving eggs from a woman’s ovaries and incubating them with male sperm. The embryos are then placed in the woman's uterus to attain successful pregnancy.


ICSI is an advanced reproductive treatment technology that assists in fertility. The process for both IVF and ICSI is more or less the same. The only difference is a single sperm is directly injected in to the egg cytoplasm.


IMSI is a laboratory process where after examining, select sperms are selected and microinjected in the egg. This helps the doctors to find and discard sperms with genetic abnormalities.


IUI is a non-invasive fertility treatment where sperms are directly transferred in woman’s uterus during the ovulation period to facilitate fertilization.


Dr. Pai was also the first IVF doctor in India to perform Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH). Here a laser beam is used to make a small hole in the outer layer of the embryo. This helps the embryo to hatch out and prepare to implant in the woman's uterus.


A Gestational surrogate carries babies for parents who are unable to have children until birth. 1-2 embryos are implanted into a gestational carrier through IVF; in a lab at a fertility clinic. Intended parents might use their own genetic material but sometimes an egg donor is required.
