Ludhiana: An IVF clinic (Test Tube baby clinic) was inaugurated today at Mohandai Oswal Hospital in technical collaboration with Indira IVF . Speaking on the occasion, the Guest of Honour, Dr Iqbal Singh Ahuja said that this clinic will go a long way in helping childless couples achieve parenthood.

He lauded the management of MOH for this new development.
Dr Bakul Kapoor, centre head at Indira IVF told that In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a process of fertilisation where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body, in vitro ("in glass"). The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman's ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory. After the fertilised egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, it is implanted in the same or another woman's uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.
Dr Sanjeev K Uppal, CEO, Mohandai Oswal Hospital said that the IVF is a complex procedure and is performed at few centres under well trained doctors and technical team . It involves a series of tests and procedures. Refinements in laboratory technology and clinical practice have allowed IVF to evolve into a medical procedure that is efficient, safe, readily accessible, and relatively affordable he added.
