Dr Gautam Allahbadia’s role in IVF developments
Dr Gautam Allahbadia is an authoritative figure in ART research and development, and has, over the years associated himself with chief organizations, to further train professionals through his acquired knowledge and expertise. His path breaking publications on Tubal Patency Testing using Ultrasound were published in the Australian Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology & the Fertility & Sterility in the USA while he was still a resident doctor.
The senior reproductive endocrinologist has helped train gynecologists in 17 private Rotunda franchisee IVF centers across India between 2000-2012.
His successful third party reproduction program at Rotunda — The Center for Human Reproduction (now run by his wife) was highly acclaimed, which made it possible to achieve successful pregnancies in patients from across 40 countries.
Also highlighting his conventional IVF alternative "IVF Lite”, the doctor made a statement:

"IVF Lite's thrust is minimal stimulation; in conventional treatments, couples are given high doses of fertility injections, aimed at making multiple eggs. We have fine-tuned a method wherein a minimal amount of medicines (10 tablets for ten days, and about three injections) are given with results as good as conventional IVF. The main difference in IVF Lite is that for all the patients, we freeze the embryos in the months they are removed from the woman's body, and once we have the requisite number of embryos in the next months, the uterus is primed, making it more susceptible to receiving the embryos. That increases the pregnancy rates to 70-80%. We are proud to be able to offer this program, also having the most experience and research with it. Women who were previously told that they couldn't conceive their own genetic children, also have a chance at getting pregnant now.”
