Dr. Raut’s Centre for Reproductive Immunology provides the LIT treatment with a unique patented process branded as ImmuLIT™. This treatment is available at all their centres, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore. The ImmuLIT™ procedures are performed by Dr. Mohan Raut and Dr. Mugdha Raut, who are qualified clinical reproductive immunologists. ImmuLIT™ is a one time 3 hour process. It involves the separation of lymphocytes from the husband’s blood by a patented process and injecting them in the wife.

Modern innovations in fertility treatment have revolutionized the landscape of reproductive health. Advances in in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology, including pre-implantation genetic testing, especially NIPT, have significantly increased success rates and reduced the risk of genetic disorders. Additionally, emerging technologies such as time-lapse imaging of embryos and artificial intelligence applications in embryo selection are providing deeper insights and greater accuracy in fertility treatments. Artificial intelligence (AI) is playing a transformative role in infertility treatment, particularly in the realm of IVF. AI algorithms can analyze large datasets to identify patterns that may not be visible to human clinicians, thus improving diagnostic accuracy and treatment personalization. In the embryology lab, AI helps increase the safety and standardization of procedures by closely monitoring gametes and embryos, as well as ensuring consistent quality control. AI technology, such as time-lapse imaging and machine learning, is utilized to objectively grade and rank embryos, aiding in the decision-making process for embryo selection, which enhances the chances of successful implantation and pregnancy. Overall, the integration of AI in infertility treatment is not only improving the success rates of fertility treatments but also offering new hope to many couples facing infertility challeng
