About the Clinic

salud-de-la-mujer-dexeusdexeusThe aim of Dexeus Woman’s Health is to provide care for women’s health in all stages of life as well as a comprehensive and efficient response to her needs. Our new centre has been designed to include all of the services while also offering greater comfort and more personalised attention. This concept is the result of years of renowned experience with the most advanced technologies and methods and the interest of a human team that is close to the patient, aware of her needs and knows how to provide assistance at all times.

Our department was set up in 1935 by Santiago Dexeus Font (1897-1973) to provide care for patients needing obstetric and gynaecological treatment in a hospital environment.

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproduction is currently made up of prestigious specialists (60 doctors, 20 biologists and 14 technicians). They share a commitment to offering high quality medical treatment through the teamwork of leading experts who use the most advanced me­dical techniques available. They are also actively involved in teaching and research.

  • Our most prominent day-to-day healthcare activities are:
  • Maternal-foetal medicine
  • Gynaecological oncology
  • Reproductive medicine

Several specialised units provide a wide range of healthcare treatments under the supervision of professionals with great national and international reputation, both as authors (50 books and 1,340 chapters and papers in scientific journals published to date) and as participants in various scientific forums and conferences.

In 1989, the Spanish Ministry for Health granted us teaching hospital status so we are able to take in residents who wish to qualify under the official MIR examination system. The Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona has awarded us the status of university institute.

Egg Donation Program

Short description of the program:

An opportunity to live your pregnancy

We guarantee the best success rates with the most thorough donor screening.

What is the Egg Donation?
In Vitro fertilisation (IVF) using donor egg is an assisted reproduction technique that makes possible to inseminate the eggs of a donor with the semen of the partner of the recipient, or that of a donor, and to obtain embryos that can be transferred to the uterus of the future mother.

The Egg Donation process

1 Your gynaecologist will assess your medical history and will guide you to take the next steps.
2 Our Egg Donation programme guarantees you a rigorous screening of all our donors.
3 You have the guarantee that the donor will have physical characteristics similar to yours.
4 Hormone treatment to ensure that the maximum number of oocytes is obtained. Alternatively, eggs from the donor bank can be assigned. The recipient will start with the hormone replacement therapy in order to prepare the endometrium.
5 Oocytes are retrieved through a transvaginal follicular puncture.
6 To make sure that we select the spermatozoon with the best mobility.
7 Eggs are inseminated on the lab and the ones that have been fecundated have a time of growth between 2 and 5 days.
8 The embryos are deposited inside the uterus. It’s a simple procedure with no anaesthesia.

Who is intended for?
• Women of advanced reproductive age.
• Women that do not have functioning ovaries:

o For physiological reasons, like menopause.
o For genetic reasons.
o For premature ovarian failure.
• Women that carry a hereditary genetic disease which transmission cannot be prevented with a Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) technique.
• After several unsuccessful IVF treatments.
• Women that do not have ovaries because they have been removed.
• Repeated miscarriages.
