Assisted Reproductive technologies (ART)
Even before the establishment of the Hospital, Assoc.

With more then 25 years of experience in assisted reproduction, Ob/Gyn Hospital "Dr.Shterev" is a pioneer in the implementation of ART in Bulgaria. At the moment, due to the highly qualified physicians and embryologists, the modern base and the up-to-date equipment according to highest international standards, the patients can take advantage of a wide range of advanced assisted reproductive technologies and methods: : intrauterine insemination (IUI), IVF (in vitro fertilization), ICSI, PESA, TESE, PBMC, FISH, Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD / PGS), Laser assisted hatching (AH), Magnetic activated cell storing (MACS), co-cultivation of embryos with endometrial cells, freezing and cryopreservation of spermatozoa, oocytes, embryos, etc. When resolving complex cases, the team of Ob/Gyn Hospital "Dr. Shterev" holds a consultation with highly recognized scientists, and our partners, from leading hospitals on reproductive health in UK, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Israel, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey.
The high professionalism of the specialists from Ob / Gyn Hospital "Dr.Shterev" is valued also on a European level. A prove for this fact is the election and membership of representatives from the hospital in a number of committees and specialized groups with a status of national representatives,such as The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology – ESHRE, – ESHRE). where Dr. Tanya Timeva represents Bulgaria in the category "Clinicians" and Dr. Tanya Milachich – the category "Scientists" (both of them with a mandate of three years). Dr. Tanq Milachich is one of the chosen members of the Specialized Interest Group "Reproductive Genetics" to The Executive Committee of ESHRE. The success of Dr. Milachich is regarded success for Bulgaria as well because this is the first time when our country has a representative in The Executive Committee of The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE). Four of the embryologists in the hospital own an ESHRE certificate after successfully passing an exam. This progress makes Ob/Gyn Hospital "Dr. Shterev" the hospital with most embryologists certified by ESHRE.
