With over 2,500 babies born through IVF at Nordica Fertility Centre, the managing director, Dr. Abayomi Ajayi has vowed to avert medical tourism by keeping up with the standard.
Abayomi, at a ceremony to mark the 16th year anniversary of Nordica Fertility Center in Lagos state, said in 2018, medical tourism mount to about N400 billion.
“A lot of Nigerians still go abroad to embark on IVF procedures. My headache about that is how can we reduce this figure, knowing the fact that Nordica Fertility Centre can successfully do IVF in Nigeria,” He added.
Speaking on the 16th anniversary of the fertility centre, Ajayi said it has not been easy but with determination, guided with the spirit of excellence and wonderful staff, the clinic has been able to overcome any challenges that must have come their way.
“I think I am just lucky because I have been blessed with very good staff, but there is more to do in terms of averting the trend of medical tourism. At Nordica Fertility Center, We are guided by the fact that we want to be known with the spirit of excellence, that you can see anywhere in the world,” he added.
In the same vein, Clinic Manager, Nordica Fertility, Mrs. Tola Ajayi, while thanking God for the success recorded so far, said Nordica Fertility has the latest technology that can be seen anywhere in the world.
She however advised women to seek medical advice early to avoid infertility. She said, “Once you are married and within a year, you are yet to get pregnant, please see a doctor. If you are less than 37 years, you are still struggling to get pregnant, please see a Doctor.”
