'Zhai's success rate is phenomenal' - The Observer; Dr Xiao-Ping Zhai's unique methods, blending traditional Chinese medicine with western medical techniques, have seen her achieve an incredible 78% success rate at her Harley Street clinic; 1 in 6 couples experience fertility problems, with the amount spent on fertility treatments increasing from GBP1.8 billion in 2007 to GBP2.9 billion in 2008; Modern lifestyle problems such as increasing rates of obesity as well as the trend to start a family later in life mean this is a problem set to affect more and more couples.
Dr Xiao-Ping Zhai initially trained in western medicine in China. Studying the beneficial effects traditional Chinese medicine had on chronic conditions and underlying health, however, led her to gain an additional qualification in TCM. She has specialised in infertility treatment since 1995, has been voted one of Britain's 225 best private doctors by Tatler Magazine, and her Harley Street clinic now has a waiting list of many months.
