After their successful pregnancy with last years’ couple Terri & Kerian, the Klinikk Hausken team are ready to help another couple start a family in 2017.
Providing individualised care together with the newest technology and years of expertise make for a winning combination in getting great results for our valued clients. Klinikk Hausken pride ourselves on listening to our clients as the answers often lie with the client and not in the test results alone.
As one of the pioneers in Europe to successfully implement the EmbryoScope® to its full potential with amazing results all our clients get free use of this revolutionary technology. Although Klinikk Hausken is the largest private IVF clinic in Norway, this is not just based on the number of clients but also on birth success rates, we are small compared to any UK clinic. The feedback from our clients is that they feel like they have been listened to and part of the treatment process.
With a strong legacy connected to IVF and over 20 years’ experience, Dr Jon Hausken founded Klinikk Hausken in 2006. Dr Hausken had a strong view on how the clinic should be run basing the core values on individual care, innovation and simplified treatment plans. Dr Hausken and his team have made the clinic a “safe haven” for couples seeking IVF treatment.
MEET OUR DOCTORS
Klinikk Hausken’s practice is led by Medical Director and Founder Dr Jon Hausken. He completed his MD in 1989 specialising in obstetrics and gynecology in 1995. Since then he has worked as both Head of the IVF and Birthing unit at Haugesund Hospital (NHS equiv.) until he left to start Klinikk Hausken in 2006. In doing so he carried his father’s legacy as an innovator within the field of IVF. Dr Hausken is also the Director of the Nordic Fertility Society (NFS) as well as the National Society (NOFAB).
Dr Arne Schwennicke joined the Klinikk Hausken team of doctors in 2008 after 2 years as Head of the IVF unit at Haugesund Hospital. He specialised in gynaecology and obstetrics between 2000-2006 after completing his MD in 2001.
We are also so happy to welcome our two new colleagues to the KH team, Dr Holst-Larsen and Dr Grete Dale Godtlibsen, both IVF experts with years of experience within the IVF field.
Dr Holst-Larsen completed his MD in 1998 and has since worked as both Head of the IVF and Birthing unit in Stavanger and Haugesund Hospital (NHS equiv.) He joined the Klinikk Hausken team in 2014.
Dr Godtlibsen completed her MD in 2002 and has since worked at NHS equivalent hospitals in Bergen, Stavanger and Haugesund specializing in obstetrics and gynaecology. She joined the Stavanger branch in 2015.
With the wealth of experience our doctors bring there is no doubt our patients are in good hands whilst receiving treatment at Klinikk Hausken.
Although Klinikk Hausken is the largest private IVF clinic in Norway we are small compared to any UK clinic. That’s why our clients feel they have been seen and heard after receiving treatment at the clinic. All our clients will be given a named nurse who will be their point of call throughout the treatment process. In addition, our clients get direct access to their doctor to make sure they feel safe during treatment. Our international contact is also at hand if our clients have any queries or concerns regarding travel arrangements, appointments etc. At every turn the KH team is there to ensure you receive the individualized care KH is all about.
EMBRYOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Klinikk Hausken has always been the pioneers in adopting cutting edge technologies within IVF. We maintain our focus on innovative treatments and technologies designed to maximise success rates for our couples. innovation is the key word. In 2010 Klinikk Hausken began implementing the revolutionary EmbryoScope ® Time-Lapse imaging technology. We were the first clinic in Norway, as well as one of the pioneers in Europe, to successfully implement this novel concept. Upon receiving its EmbryoScope®, Klinikk Hausken led by IVF Laboratory Director, Shabana Sayed, began a series of in- house trials to confirm its safety and efficacy.
This resulted in an algorithm which allowed us to achieve a relative increase in live birth rates per embryo transferred by a remarkable 24%. In addition to the traditional morphology, it uses de-selection parameters and kinetic behaviour of embryos to select the most viable embryo. After evaluating the benefits of this technology Klinikk Hausken have implemented the use of EmbryoScope® in all our clinics and more importantly providing this revolutionary technology to all couples without any additional cost.
We strongly believe that time is of the essence when trying to achieve a pregnancy. This is one of the reasons why we use EmbryoGlue as the standard embryo transferring media for all our couples, irrespective of it being their first or their third attempt. To enhance implantation of the most viable embryo in the uterus, EmbryoGlue has been used in all our couples from 2010. This transferring media acts as an adhesive assisting in successful implantation and subsequently a healthy pregnancy. This again reinforces Klinikk Hausken’s approach of providing optimal care to all our couples at no extra costs.
Most of our Norwegian clients have already been through a few rounds of fertility treatments by the time they consider treatment at our clinic. Our UK clients have usually had at least one NHS funded attempt or other privately funded treatment. Klinikk Hausken specialises in “difficult” cases. We leave no stone is left unturned to optimise every step of the clients treatment process. We pride ourselves on listening to our patients as the answers often lie with the patient and not in the test results alone.
