Looking to the future with confidence: that’s what our patients do

SISMeR offers them the most complete information, the most advanced technology and the most suitable assistance.
We treat people: monitoring them, helping them, encouraging them and being at their side every step of the way is our mission.

SISMeR is the Italian Society for the Study of Reproductive Medicine

It is a private organisation that has been working in the human infertility, medically-assisted procreation and genetics field since 1994, as a 3rd level MAP Centre, also providing healthcare services in other treatment areas.
Founded following an encounter between pioneering assisted reproductive technology professionals with 25 years’ experience in the sector, SISMeR has grown to become an internally-acknowledged centre specialising in Reproductive Medicine and Biology.

SISMeR’s headquarters is in Bologna, a single facility that provides all the services and technology needed to manage and care for patients who come to the centre, by providing them with the most innovative, efficacious and safe treatment options available.
In addition to its headquarters, our organisation has a number of Satellite Centres throughout Italy, in order to make life easier for couples undertaking a medically-assisted procreation programme, by giving them the chance to go to a SISMeR Centre close to home, without having to travel long distances or face expensive accommodation costs.

The S.I.S.Me.R. Charter of Services is available to patients (in electronic format) on request by e-mailing the Healthcare Director at

Values and mission

We believe there is nothing more natural than wanting a child. This is why we guide couples as they prepare for and encounter the most spontaneous event of human life. Couples who discover that they are infertile and decide to undertake a Reproductive Medicine programme are often initially disorientated by the many different opinions they receive. We believe that there is a right way to deal with the subject, provide the necessary information and appropriate support and make available scientific expertise and the most cutting-edge techniques in the Human Reproduction field.

There is a right way to talk about it. We believe in establishing a relationship with our patients, as the path ahead of couples encountering the world of Reproductive Medicine is fraught with difficulties. However, we also believe that these difficulties can be overcome, but it takes a strong couple that is willing to work as a team with SISMeR’s medical and laboratory staff. We believe in an approach to Reproductive Medicine that will, in any case, make the couple stronger. Together this is possible.

SISMeR is committed to achieving the following objectives:

  • providing the most complete information possible regarding infertility and human reproduction;
  • diagnosing and treating male, female and couple infertility;
  • providing day surgery services in its Headquarters and Satellite Centres;
  • promoting and organising scientific research and teaching activities.
