About Clinic EGV

The clinic was founded in 1998 and sits on the fifth floor of a health care building, but don’t worry, there is an elevator. It is located in the capital city of Riga, in Latvia, which is easily accessible. The insides of the clinic have a very clean and modern look, utilising light green and white colours to evoke a sense of calm within all who walk through the doors, but it is not just the decor that is light green as the doctors wear the colour as well, which should help you relax. With 4 single and double recovery rooms, you will be comfortable no matter what recovery room you are staying in.

Clinic EGV is something of a trend-setter in Latvia as it has been responsible for many firsts when it comes to assisted reproduction in the country:

  • Auxiliary reproductive technologies. Being the first clinic in Latvia to recognise the use of certain technologies in cases of infertility, they were able to break new ground when it came to using technology, previously thought not to be promising, in their treatment.
  • Sperm bank. They were the first clinic in Latvia to open a sperm bank, which allowed them unparalleled access to materials needed to further assist reproduction.
  • Andrology centre. They are the first clinic in Latvia to have an andrology centre, which allows them to not only treat female infertility but male infertility too.

The andrology centre allows the clinic to look more closely at male infertility, diagnose the problems and come up with solutions to fight it, if you are a male wishing to visit the clinic then they can help with a range of problems, such as STDs, erectile dysfunction, and general fertility. As part of their treatment with male infertility, they can perform procedures based around it, such as:

  • PESA
  • TESE
  • Micro TESE
  • MESA.

These procedures are all minimally-invasive and have been designed to be performed with as little pain as possible. They are able to perform these procedures and study the results so carefully thanks to their SOM62 surgery microscope, which is German-made and has a magnification of up to 28 times, making Clinic EGV the only clinic in Latvia with such a powerful microscope.

The clinic likes to use the latest technologies in their laboratories, as well as the latest treatments, in order to ensure the highest possible results. It is not only this, but the staff undergo training to further enhance their skills and knowledge, all around Europe, in order to bring the latest treatment techniques to their clinic, because knowledge is worth striving for. Thanks to this wealth of knowledge and experience, the staff regularly participate in international assisted reproduction conferences, gaining the respect of their peers. It is because of these technologies, and continuous thirst for knowledge that they are able to offer treatment to women that other clinics won’t, women who are up to the age of 55 are welcome at their clinic, whereas a lot of other clinics stop offering treatment past the ages of 49 or 51.

When it comes to safety and quality, the clinic must comply with strict regulations and are regularly audited. With this comes certifications proving that they continuously maintain the highest standards of quality and care. As well as being a licensed tissue establishment they hold:

  • ISO:9001:2015,
  • Laboratory LVS EN ISO 15189:2013 M-637.
