Hi,

I am planning on doing an IVF cycle with Dr Malpani in Mumbai. Has anyone had any experiences with this doctor? I would love to hear from you if you have undergone treatment with this doc

Thanks & Regards

HAve no experience, but they are very reputed in not just Mumbai but across. Without a doubt a good choice. Only heard good things about the doctor couple. Yes, its a husband and wife doctor couple.

Thanks for your response Narendra. I feel pretty nervous as I have never been to India and have selected this doctor based on the information on his website.

? For an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment, I think I might want to have just a little more than some website to go on.

No matter how good this forum may be in many other respects, but this is just clearly not its expertise.

(There's been some big stuff going on here in The Netherlands btw about the treatment being cut down on, so people likely taking greater risks on whatever is still insured. Such as a greater risk of them ending up with, I don't know the English phrase, but multiplets then.*

I.e., twins of a number greater than that. Now apart from the parents not looking for that, apparently these kids will be more prone to various diseases or malfunctions.)

That's not to speak against the treatment btw -- I wouldn't --, but for people to be driven to take it in an irresponsible way wouldn't seem to be very well-advised, right. And so I now find myself wondering why might people seek to get it in India instead of in their home country.

* Namely the point and to me as a layman seems to be you will always be inseminated with a few eggs (or have a few eggs inseminated? Well, you get the point), since few of them will be likely to catch on.

So in the past, this would take several treatments for it to hopefully work (if never guaranteed, as I guess most of us will know). And to hopefully lay it easier on the chance of twins and triplets etc., which apparently was already high, but simply by spreading it out, then.

But now in our good and infinite wisdom this nation has decided to no longer insure it. So people -- or those who can afford it, at least -- will go for just the one (or two, whatever, as opposed to many before) treatment. Involving the more fertilized "eggs" (what do you call those in reasonable English, anyway? Sorry, this is one of those instances where English clearly isn't my language.) And so increasing the chance of mutliplets or whatever they may be called, and etc., see just above. (If I don't explain it well, the issue seems to be nonetheless very real though.)

But so anyway may I ask again, and if you don't mind -- you really don't have to answer, and it's clearly none of my business -- what made you think of going to India for this? I am again not holding this against you, at all -- (nor am I even saying treatment there would necessarily be sub-standard, of course not) -- however I do think it's a freaking disgrace if people are driven to such steps just simply because of spending cuts at home. (And then you relying on a board like this rather than say your national health system, I mean that is a freaking modern disgrace, isn't it.)

(And in the meantime, we're screaming about our drastically "graying" population. The time will come and in your lifetime when you'll be begging for those immigrants you meant to kick out, I tell you, folks. To just keep your economy going not to mention look after you in your old age, yes, that's right.)

Anyway, I am now ranting. Sorry, Chick. But I seriously would go on just a little more than what this board has to tell you, then. Even if your national health service like mine is breaking down (and I'm sure many in the world do faster than mine does, even), I'm sure you'll find good and dedicated people working within it. Speak to them.

It's that typical old bullshit btw (pardon the phrase), of thinking Oh so we'll cut on this, goes well with the electorate and there's another few millions saved -- but conveniently overlooking it will cost you vastly more than that just in terms of the problems created. So children suffering from this or that, those around them perhaps seeking treatment or being incapacitated altogether because of what they're facing, and yada yada. (As, indeed, Dutch experts in the field have been cautioning when consulted about it, btw, to bring the story full-circle. And as indeed any expert in any field would. Cut down on culture, since it's all "elite" anyway? Sure, but then people are gonna be less cultured. Can hardly blame those kids for running riot in the streets and having little notion of Verdi's Aida, then, right. And anyway it's kind of a funny stance for parties who like to get away on a "Our Culture First (And No One Else's)!" platform. As again it would be funny for them to get by on an anti-aliens stance, yet nonetheless stopping you from procreating by modern means. If someone can point out the logic to me, I'll be all ears.)

Anyway: Free market, my ass.

And anyway to get your nose fixed or something and at your own risk is clearly one thing. This is clearly something else.

@Chick2011

Looking up on Internet wouldn't do proper justice when it comes to Doctor+India as it might have done in any other case scenario as some doctors have heavy Internet presence and that doesn't necessarily means they are the best out there. However I've myself heard about Dr.Malpani a lot.
But have a look at some consumer complaints regarding Dr. Malpani here link and here link

This is a well known IVF Hospital in Mumbai link and they've launched a much better/advanced version of theirs link

But again as suggested above this is not the very forum that you should be asking in , you should head out to other discussion boards, What you need is a specific and serious information, you should consult and ask around a lot before you take the call.



In the End its just memories what we end up with, and right now you have the choice to make it Good, Bad or a Thrill.

Agree with Macha and mumbaiguy. A better way to find out would be to either get some direct feedback from people who have been there or rely more on sites where these issues get discussed.
