About Institut Marquès
Institut Marquès is an international reference center in Assisted Reproduction headquartered in Barcelona (Spain) with a regional presence in the UK (London) and Italy (Rome and Milan). Leaders in innovation and with an excellence-based medical care, it treats patients from more than 50 countries. The centre has a broad portfolio of Assisted Reproduction services with its own Premium Sperm Bank and a broad programme of gamete and embryo donation. It offers several alternatives to those patients that need a Donor Artificial Insemination or an In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), as well as several specialised treatment units: Genetic Advice and Hereditary Diseases, Recurrent Miscarriages, Oncology and Reproductive Medicine and Andrology (male fertility). Institut Marquès keeps on devising the most advanced technology for reproductive medicine in order to help out people with fertility issues to build a family. Next to the basic treatment, some special add-on techniques are offered to patients, proposing only those that have shown to be effective such as the Preimplantation Genetic Test (PGT), diverse techniques focusing on the male factor (Fertile, IMSI…) or the Embryoscope incubator (Time-lapse technology).
Moreover, Institut Marquès has recently launched Rainbow Fertility Barcelona, a project which aims to continue helping even more the LGTBI+ community: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people, as well as the rest of sexual and gender diversities, to achieve their dream of forming a family. Institut Marquès specialises in special hardship cases of patients with fertility issues (those who have previously undergone several cycles without success).
Its CEO, Dr Marisa López-Teijón, is one of the most internationally recognised scientists in her specialty, awarded at Harvard University (USA) for her studies on fetal hearing and recently awarded as “Best Physician of the Year in Assisted Reproduction” in Spain. Institut Marquès will always be a personal and family project exclusively dedicated to Assisted Reproduction and Gynaecology. It owes its name to the family whose members have represented the center’s unity and continuity throughout time. Dr Vicens Marquès i Bertran (Barcelona, 1895-1977) began practicing as a gynecologist in 1922. On the verge of 100 years of history, the fourth generation of gynecologists of the Marquès family, Dr. Borja Marquès, is now part of the clinic’s team.
