ICSI Treatment

What is ICSI treatment?

Millenium In-house Embryologists perform a highly specialized fertility treatment procedure called ICSI using the micro-manipulation technique. This treatment is done under a highly magnified and powerful microscope. A single egg of the woman is injected with a single sperm of the man. The fertilization rates of ICSI are better than IVF as it bypasses the natural fertilization process. This treatment is highly advantageous in qualitative and quantitative defect of sperm/egg.
