From consultation to conception, scientists and doctors have made countless childless couples experience the bliss of childbearing through assisted reproductive techniques. The practice of embryology has been integral to the entire treatment process offered by ART, and Dr. Goral Gandhi has been on the forefront when it comes to practicing and researching about the living field. With new technologies and advancements in fertility treatments, doctors such as Goral Gandhi have been able to help couples who struggle to conceive.
The problem of infertility has been uncomfortable to talk about, in the open.
This has created a need to press any misconceptions that circle infertility, and to make more people know that there is help out there for them. That’s why outreach and education have been one of the main objectives of Dr. Goral Gandhi, who has not only actively worked to educate people about the options available but also shared her expertise through training various embryologists.
With her critical expertise in the field, Goral Gandhi has been instrumental in establishing benchmarks of success in IVF and ART success in India. Her work has also given countless couples a chance at becoming parents. Being an embryologist, Dr. Gandhi works to unite and realize the developmental potential of embryos and for some of these embryos to ultimately complete the processes of implantation, and growth providing the offspring so keenly desired by childless couples.
So when and how Dr. Gandhi did take the route to becoming an embryologist and work her way up to the ranks of the best?
Dr. Goral Gandhi began her journey to fertility medicine and embryology here in India. Having done her master’s in Applied Biology from the King Edward Memorial Hospital, University of Mumbai, from the very start, she was determined to make a contribution in terms of advancement and practice of embryology in India.
As her interest in reproductive health and fertility increased, she embarked on a career in the direct day-to-day care of patients who were struggling to create their families. The chance to offer that potentially life-changing services to people was the driving force that eventually brought Dr. Goral Gandhi into being a Scientific and Laboratory Director at Indo Nippon IVF Bandra Mumbai. She has offered great expertise in IVF, ICSI, Donor egg IVF, Surrogacy, Frozen embryo transfer, Egg freezing, Segmented IVF, along with providing emotional support as well as best consultation to her patients.
“IVF requires a laboratory that would not only evaluate, prepare and process samples with utmost diligence providing perfect quality control, but act as an effective substitute to natural reproduction,” opines Dr. Goral Gandhi, who has been behind the design and establishment of many successful assisted conception laboratories in India and one in Ghana.
Sharing her passion through successfully training hundreds of embryologists
Not sideling her research work, she continues to create better education and awareness around IVF and has also been credited as a pioneering trainer. Imparting IVF and embryology training to clinicians and embryologists, Goral Gandhi has set up a global training school at Indo Nippon IVF. She has also trained over 500 clinicians and embryologists, not just from India but from many other countries as well. Her students have now moved on to become competent, independent embryologists and clinicians, with quite a few of them now running their own independent IVF units.
“Ever since I’ve started practicing clinical embryology, I strive to provide the best possible treatment options to my patients. I continue to pursue my research work to reinvent better and more convenient ways to provide the best patient-centered care,” says Dr. Gandhi.
Dr. Goral Gandhi has proved herself as an excellent advocate and an educator, evaluating and improving the course of fertility-treatment-assisted pregnancies in India and abroad. In association with that, she has led significant research studies and co-authored over 30 chapters in various medical textbooks and has several publications in national and international journals.
