Welcome and Introduction
Topic: Infertility Explained: What are the Treatment Options
by Dr Loh Seong Feei, Medical Director, Thomson Fertility Centre
Dr Loh Seong Feei was the Head of the Reproductive Medicine Department and Director of the KKIVF Center before joining Thomson Fertility Center as its Medical Director. During his tenure at KKIVF, he helped shape it into the biggest IVF centre in Singapore. From 2008 to 2010, the centre performed a few thousand IVF cycles with good pregnancy success rates. He believes in a holistic and problem-oriented approach to treating infertility. Dr Loh, who has been instrumental in developing reproductive surgery, has treated many patients with endometriosis, uterine fibroids and tubal disease. He has also helped many couples realise their dreams of becoming parents. Dr Loh believes that fertility treatment should be patient-centered and patient-friendly and that fertility programmes should be tailored to the needs of each individual couple.
Topic: What Happens in the IVF Lab?
by Dr Ethiraj Balaji Prasath, Chief Embryologist, Thomson Fertility Centre
Dr Balaji spent 17 years as the Chief Embryologist at the KKIVF Centre, where he managed the IVF and Andrology labs as well as the National Sperm Bank of Singapore. While there, he personally performed more than 3,000 intracytoplasmic sperm injections with a clinical pregnancy rate of 40 per cent of embryos transferred. Dr Balaji has trained many doctors and embryologists on IVF lab techniques, and was instrumental in achieving Singapore’s first pregnancy and live birth via Laser Assisted Hatching. His more recent achievement was the world’s first live birth from frozen-thawed embryos obtained after in-vitro maturation (IVM) in the lab and intracytoplasmic sperm injections of oocytes recovered from a surgically-removed cancerous ovary.
Topic: Acupuncture for Fertility
by Ms Jun Negoro, TCM Physician, Thomson Chinese Medicine
Ms Negoro holds a double degree in both Bachelor of Biomedical Science and Bachelor of Chinese Medicine from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM). During her 2 years in Beijing, she went through extensive clinical internships in Dongfang Hospital where she worked with senior doctors in various specialties. Jun Negoro’s treatments support women’s health – including period issues, gut health, emotional well-being and sleep issues. With a strong belief in Traditional Chinese Medicine’s healing potential, she encourages patients to share their concerns and work together to balance their health – both physically and emotionally.
