Director of Reproductive Medicine Center Memorial, Istanbul.
Professor Dr. Semra Kahraman is Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology. After graduating from a medical school at the University of Hacettepe in Turkey, he gained his specialty at the University of Ankara. She is a pioneer in the ICSI method, embryo freeze and PGD diagnosis / pre-implantation genetic diagnosis / as well as HLA typing and aneuploid testing in Turkey. She and her team are the first in Turkey to isolate and create embryonic stem cells.
The center is the largest unit in Turkey, with more than 4000 invitations per year. The center is also a national in vitro training center and is the only center in Turkey certified by ISO15189.
Professor Kahraman is a former president of the International Society for Pre-Embryonic Genetic Diagnosis. Currently, she is the vice president of the American Reproductive Medicine Society specializing in diagnostics. Professor Kahraman has published numerous articles in magazines. Its main areas of scientific interest are preimplantation genetic diagnosis and controlled ovarian stimulation.
The most important factor for success is to accurately assess the condition of each pair, then carefully and accurately plan the most appropriate treatment based on the specific case. The memorial seeks assistance in couples where:
Each year, about 4000 couples, many of whom from abroad, are subjected to in vitro procedures at the IVF center. The main reason for the international reputation of the center lies in its high levels of success. For example, in young fertile couples, clinical pregnancy is achieved in about 65% of cases. In couples where the woman is over 40 years of age or have many previous unsuccessful attempts, the success rate is about 25%. In both cases, the results are above the world average.
Head of the team at the In vitro Fertilization Center at Memorial Group Hospitals is Professor Shemra Kahraman, a world-renowned doctor and president of the International Association for Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGDIS). She runs a team of over 70 specialists equipped with the latest technology in this field. As a result of their work in 24 years, over 30,000 babies were born. Professor Dr. Semra Kahraman states that this figure is the highest number of babies born with assisted reproductive techniques in an ART center in Turkey.
It is also possible for an embryo constructed of 4-8 cells to be carefully examined prior to implantation in the uterus with the methods of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to exclude the risk of genetic anomalies and conditions such as thalassemia or haemophilia.
They meet legal requirements without violating the ethical and scientific principles upon which they are based. The Memorial Invitational Infertility Center, founded by Prof. Dr. Semra Kahraman, received an ISO15189 accreditation certificate. It is the first and only in vitro laboratory in Turkey and Asia and among the top nine in vitro laboratories in Europe that are awarded this accreditation.
