Poland – Rising Egg Donation star!

Poland a key player in medical tourism

In the heart of Europe with a huge Baltic coastline on the north lies the country of Poland.
Poland’s history of being destroyed and devastated by wars did not smother the Poles spirit to rebuild and develop. After years and years now Poland is becoming one of the most popular destinations for medical tourists with world class medical success rates in almost every field of health care. For e.g. dental care in Poland is of so high standards and at the same time so cheap that it is literally cheaper to take a flight from England, go to a dentist and flight back to England than do it locally.

Success rates as well as best specialists is also linked to the field of Assisted Reproduction Technologies especially IVF with Egg Donation. The fact that the EU has their door opened now for health care in other countries plus the new bill regulating IVF in Poland (it was legally in a grey area till now) makes it now a really reliable destination. Furthermore Poland’s location in the centre of Europe, very low plane fares, cheap accommodation and astonishing tourist attractions like the city of Cracow only adds to the argument that Poland is a rising Egg Donation star!

First IVF baby in Poland was born in 1987, that is almost 9 years later after the birth of the first ever IVF baby. First clinic in Poland which offered the IVF treatment was opened in 1989. Till 1994 it was the only clinic offering IVF. According to ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) in 1999 there were already 10 clinics offering IVF doing about 2500 cycles.
