PGS and PGD are recent developments in modern medicine and is used to assess the genetic profile of the embryo before it is implanted, thereby increase the chances of a healthy foetus. Oasis will conduct free camps for infertile couples in tier 2 and tier 3 cities as part of its CSR initiative to bring about awareness.

Currently Oasis is the only centre in Hyderabad offering PGS through which all 24 chromosomes can be analysed. Talking about the expansion, Kiran Gedela, co-founder and managing director of Oasis India, “Currently we run three centers in Hyderabad.

Going forward, we are planning to open 25 centers in the next five years. These new centers will be a mix of IVF, satellite centers and strategy partner model. This expansion goal will be accomplished through strategic partnerships and fresh fund infusion.”
