Our team in the fertility centre

Many perspectives for your treatment success

A special feature of the MVZ fertility centre is our interdisciplinary approach. We never look at a medical topic from a single professional perspective, but always include several points of view. That is why our team of doctors includes not only gynecologists and reproductive doctors. Andrologists, endocrinologists with their own special laboratory, biologists, fertility surgeons, human geneticists and other experts are available as required.
