Virtus Health excels at FSA 2013

Virtus Health has reinforced its commitment to investing in scientific leadership and world-class technology for its patients with its outstanding involvement at this year’s Fertility Society of Australia (FSA) conference, hosted in Sydney from 1-4 September.

World Breakthrough - First Pregnancy From Ovarian Tissue Grafted in the Anterior Abdominal Wall

Virtus Health's world leading fertility preservation team, led by Associate Professor Kate Stern, Head of Fertility Preservation at Melbourne IVF and the Royal Women’s Hospital announced the world’s first pregnancy from ovarian tissue grafted in the anterior abdominal wall of a Victorian woman.

The Melbourne woman, Vali, sought the tissue preservation treatment to help save her fertility after the loss of ovarian function through cancer treatment.

Prior to surgery to remove her second ovary at the age of 23, she requested the ovarian tissue be frozen.

City East Specialist Day Hospital becomes the newest addition to the Virtus Health Portfolio

Virtus Health is pleased to announce the acquisition of Maroubra Day Surgery in Sydney.

Collaboration with the shareholders of the Maroubra Day Surgery initially commenced in 2004, when IVFAustralia relocated its IVF clinic from the Royal Women’s Hospital in Randwick to the same building as the Maroubra Day Surgery and entered into a joint venture partnership with the Maroubra Day Surgery shareholders. The partnership was highly successful with the doctors and staff working to enhance all aspects of the day surgery and patient experience.
