About Brussels IVF

Since 1983, Brussels IVF, the centre for reproductive medicine at UZ Brussel, is active as a fertility clinic within the university hospital linked to the VUB (Free University of Brussels).

Brussels IVF specialises in fertility treatments. The centre enjoys international fame as a pioneer in the development and application of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). A worldwide breakthrough was achieved in 1991 with the introduction of the ICSI technique.

As a university institution within the VUB network, Brussels IVF also has a broad academic mission as an educational institution and as an engine for scientific reproductive research. This research is indispensable to offer patients the best care and latest insights.

Thanks to a multidisciplinary team of more than 200 employees who are on standby seven days a week to assist patients with fertility problems, more than 48,000 children have been delivered.

In the spotlight: promising study

Looking for the cause of chronic endometritis and the best treatment for a successful pregnancy
Chronic endometritis is an inflammation of the endometrium, the inner layer of the uterus, where the implantation of a pregnancy takes place. This inflammation can affect a woman’s fertility and is common in women with fertility problems.
When diagnosed, a microbial cause is often considered and the patient is given broad-spectrum antibiotics. However, these antibiotics unnecessarily kill many microorganisms in our body, including the good ones that increase the chances of pregnancy. Indeed, it is unclear what role micro-organisms play. In this study, we aim to gain an understanding of the microorganisms present in the uterus and arrive at a robust diagnosis and targeted treatment for this disease.

We combine the expertise of our fertility physicians with that of microbiologists and pathologists, leading to a close multidisciplinary collaboration.
