Marie Louise Wissing

I am a qualified doctor from the University of Copenhagen. Following my basic clinical training, I began performing research at the Region Zealand Fertility Clinic, and in 2013 I was awarded a PhD due to my thesis on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and egg quality. I became a specialist in gynaecology/obstetrics in 2018, and since then I have worked exclusively with fertility treatment.

I am a fertility doctor, and I focus strongly on providing individual, optimised care for each patient. I have particular expertise with regard to PCOS by virtue of my research experience.

I have chosen to work at Aleris Fertility because I would like to be part of the team that is aiming to create a unique and leading Fertility Clinic in Scandinavia. As part of Aleris Privathospitaler, Aleris Fertility has the best conditions for providing optimum treatment and assisting with continuous development and improvement of the field of fertility.
