Centre for Infertility Management & Assisted Reproduction

Fertility Clinic at – Cochin | Edappal | Coimbatore | Dubai | Thiruvalla

Fertility Clinic

The first in vitro fertilisation centre (IVF) and fertility clinic 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 Gynecology 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.

CIMAR Fertility Centre

“Our fertility clinic is committed to perfecting the technological advances in healthcare and fertility management services. We update the professional skills of our team through a process of continuous training and reviews”.

Multi-disciplinary team of experienced fertility doctors, nurses and other supporting staff at CIMAR will make your fertility treatment personalised and their skill and experience will achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Wherever you are, we make your fertility treatment easy. Our fertility clinics at four different locations make it convenient for you.

CIMAR Cochin is a more peaceful and comforting experience. We have chosen the banks of Cheranellore river as one of the location for our fertility clinic. The strategic location of this fertility clinic is easily accessible from the city of Kochi and at the same time, provides a retreat-like experience. The quietness of the place is calming and refreshing and adds immense value.
