Many couples are choosing the UAE as a top destination to have their IVF treatments. With Dubai gaining a strong foothold in many facets of medical tourism, Dr. Robertson explains that typically, 10 percent of the patients they see are overseas tourists. “We’ve recently seen an increase in people coming from Nigeria, India, and Oman,” he tells. “The IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) package is our most popular treatment for medical tourists, followed by genetic screening.” This drive in the demand for fertility treatments, suggests Dr. Robertson, is helped by the regulatory bodies in the UAE who mandate strict protocols on the quality of care to ensure patients are always in the best of hands. “We have experienced doctors, state of- the-art facilities and world class technology in the fields of embryology and fertility treatments,” he points out.
