CETI, the Infertility Studies and Treatment Centre, was founded in 1998 in Porto, Portugal. Their focus is deep infertility studies and all the treatments associated, whether they are medical, surgical or Assisted Reproductive Technology.
Infertility is a condition that affects about 9 to 10% of the couples nowadays, and the numbers continue to rise. The study and treatment of this disease is made by gynaecologists. The collaboration of other colleagues from biology, endocrinology, andrology, genetics, psychology, etc. is in some cases required.
There are multiple treatments available and those are preferably directed at the causes or factors that cause infertility. In this perspective, some medical procedures and surgeries allow to solve several situations, with a special focus on the success of the most modern techniques of minimally invasive endoscopic surgery (laparoscopy and hysteroscopy).
CETI's sucess rates for Infertility treatments are consistently above the European average.

Techniques of Assisted Reproductive Technology
In the cases when isn’t possible to revert infertility, the way to “overcome” the problem and achieve fertility is by using the following techniques:
- Intra Uterine Insemination – IUI
- In Vitro Fertilisation – IVF
- Intracytoplasmic sperm microinjection - ICSI
These techniques increase the probability of couples to achieve their dream of becoming parents. These new techniques of Assisted Reproductive Technology allow solving situations considered as invincible before.
- Hormonal analysis
- Infertility surgery
- Minimally invasive surgery: Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy, in particular polycystic ovaries, fibroids and endometriosis
- Induction and stimulation of ovulation with ultrasonography monitoring for spontaneous fertilization
- Intra Uterine Insemination
- In Vitro Fertilisation
- Intracytoplasmic sperm microinjection
- Assisted Hatching
- Testicular sperm aspiration (TESA)
- Testicular sperm extraction (TESE)
