When you come to Cyprus IVF Centre you’ll meet talented experts who all love their work. Some are organisers. Some are problem solvers. Some are IT geeks and some are our medical brains. But each of them knows their stuff and will work to the best of their ability for you.
You may have heard about Team Miracle from a friend, on the internet via fertility forums or maybe through a Google search. However, regardless of how you arrived at this website, you will be wondering who we are.
Team Miracle is the result of 10 years of cooperation and teamwork treating over 12,000 patients as of 2018. We were the first organisation in Northern Cyprus to specialise in offering tailor made IVF treatment cycles for international patients. We have a huge level of experience within the industry and can help you through every stage of your fertility journey.
Team Miracle is comprised of six core members making up the coordination team and a wider workforce of doctors, nurses, anaesthetists, embryologists, biologists, genetic experts, laboratory technicians, chauffeurs, chefs and other support staff, who all work together to offer you a relaxing, problem-free treatment at Cyprus IVF Centre.
So let’s meet the team…
