Dr. Imran Pirwany

Medical Director

Dr Pirwany has over 30 years of experience in the field of reproductive medicine and infertility.

Following his postgraduate training in obstetrics and gynaecology from UK, he trained in reproductive medicine at Universities of Glasgow, and Leeds, UK, and at McGill University, Montreal, Canada.

He had the privilege of working with some of the most influential figures in the field and gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise along the way.

He furthered his interest in reproductive hormones and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and authored several papers in peer reviewed journals. He defended his thesis at the University of Leeds.

In recognition of his work, he was also awarded the Presidents Presenter Award from the Society of Gynaecological investigations – one of the most coveted awards in gynaecological research for his contribution to his work in patients with PCOS. He continued his research interest at McGill university, where he pursued his interest in in vitro maturation of oocytes, and ultrasound monitoring of patients undergoing infertility treatments.

He was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of UK for his clinical and research contributions.

Realizing the need for personalized approach in what is an emotional, vulnerable, and financially challenging journey to parenthood, he started Oasis Fertility Centre in Calgary, with the aim of providing highest clinical success rates in a supportive environment. Indeed, Oasis Fertility Centre has one of the most technologically advanced IVF labs in Canada.

His goal is to help his patients to achieve their goal of starting a family.
