Centre for Infertility Management & Assisted Reproduction

CIMAR – Cochin | Edappal | Coimbatore | Dubai | Thiruvalla

The first in vitro fertilisation centre (IVF) of northern Kerala was launched in September 1996 as a project of Edappal Hospitals (P) Ltd, Edappal. In fact, it was the Infertility Division of the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of this hospital who did pioneering work in endoscopy and related fields which was transformed into CIMAR, when the IVF facilities were added. Naturally CIMAR became the leader in infertility treatment in northern Kerala.
