EmBIO Medical Center

Founded in 1996, EmBIO Medical Center is one of the most experienced and successful fertility centers in Europe, treating infertility cases other clinics won’t even consider (advanced age etc). EmBIO boasts the first donor-egg pregnancy, the first IVM-vitrification, and the first birth from a frozen egg in Greece.

EmBIO features the full range of infertility therapies alongside with supplementary mind/body programs, acupuncture, massage, yoga, individual therapy, and nutrition counselling, all targeted to achieving conception and a successful pregnancy. Each patient at EmBIO receives individualized fertility treatment enhancing her chances of getting pregnant.

IVF Success Rates

Pregnancy success rates approach 70% especially via donor egg ivf. These are continuously improved by the most advanced assisted reproduction techniques, such as Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD/PGS). A world-class IVF laboratory and a cutting-edge research program guarantee best chances at IVF success even on the first try.

No Waiting List for Donor Egg IVF at EmBIO

EmBIO donor egg IVF program avails at any given time more than 120 highly screened donors. These are young, healthy donors, living permanently in Greece. Greek legislation protects donor anonymity. However, once you specify the desired donor characteristics, we will be provided with a pool of compatible donors, and information on their age, health, ethnic group, physical characteristics, educational/professional background, motherhood, and medical history.

Just One Day in Greece

There is no waiting list for EmBIO Donor Egg IVF Programmes. You can come to our Clinic in Athens, Greece whenever it is most convenient to you, only for one day: the day of the embryo transfer.

You could spend your free time sightseeing, with the help of a personal guide. If you decide to spend a couple of weeks vacationing in Greece, we could monitor the beginning of your IVF cycle at EmBIO. Otherwise you can be monitored by your gynaecologist in collaboration with EmBIO’s fertility specialists.

Fertility Specialists

EmBIO’s large team of board certified reproductive specialists is led by fertility expert Dr Thanos Paraschos. Dr Paraschos performed the first preimplantation genetic diagnosis in the world (1989), alongside with Lord Professor Robert Winston and A.H. Handyside at Hammersmith Hospital. Working in that team, Thanos Paraschos invented the Rigid Wallace Catheter, used ever since by scientists worldwide for particularly demanding embryo transfers. As a member of the same groundbreaking team, EmBIO’s ART Lab Director, embryologist Dina Katrania performed some of the very first ICSI procedures ever done in the UK.

    Огромное спасибо доктору Парачосу за внимательность и удачный эмбрио перенос. С русским языком проблем не было, но невсегда были понятны стадии процедуры.. а спросить самой было как-то неудобно.. Для меня одним из главнейших факторов при выборе клиники был психологический комфорт с самого первого звонка. Разочарования не было. Сейчас воспитываем дочурку.

    My husband and I have been happy parents of 2 boys, but from the very start we wanted a baby-girl and went to all odds, like diets, correct days etc. to conceive a girl. Not wanting to take chances and have another boy we chose EmBio and went through sex selection treatment, involving PGD with IVF and other procedures. In our country, the UK, this is illegal unfortunately. Lucky us - first attempt was a success and now we are so very grateful to Dr. Parachos - this was worth every hard moment we experienced and the money we paid.
