Dr. Raúl Olivares trained in Barcelona and worked as Senior Gynaecologist Consultant and Senior Fertility Consultant at Hospital Casa Maternitat and Instituto Marques respectively. In 2005 he was appointed International Department Director of Instituto Marques and developed, in collaboration with Price Waterhouse Cooper Ltd, the first Refunding Program contract in Europe. Since then more than 150 couples have joined that program in its different branches (egg donation, IVF, embryo donation).
Between 2005 and 2010 he managed a group of 7 senior fertility consultants, 6 medical assistants and 12 patient assistants that handled more than 1000 embryo transfers each year to foreign patients.
In February 2010 he left Instituto Marques and created a new partnership and state-of-the-art project called Barcelona IVF, SLP that opened doors in October 2010. He is the current Medical Director of this clinic.
Ten years later Barcelona IVF are doing more than 1300 treatments per year, 60% of them to patients coming from abroad. Since launch, they have been one of the leading groups in Europe with regards to the blastocyst transfer and to the PGS on trophectoderm.
Barcelona IVF is a Fertility Clinic focused on offering the highest quality, personalised service to our patients. Our state-of-the-art laboratory and specialist team allows us to have outstanding pregnancy rates despite carrying out elective single embryo transfers at blastocyst stage in the majority of our treatments.
Communication is key, and for this reason our patients are assigned one patient assistant and one doctor who will follow them throughout the procedure. And they can keep it simple by coming only once to Barcelona as visits can be programmed via Skype.
