Our IVF specialists.
With more than 20 years of experience in IVF, Dr. Jon Hausken started Klinikk Hausken in 2006. Since its inception, the clinic has become the largest IVF clinic in Norway based on both the number of patients and the success rate.
From the very first day, Dr. Hausken has had a clear vision of how he wanted to shape and run the clinic. Core values focus on individual treatment, innovation and simple and clear treatment plans.
Dr. Hausken and his team have created a clinic that feels safe for couples seeking IVF treatment. All patients receive a nurse to whom they can consult. In addition, all couples have direct contact with their IVF Specialist so that they feel safe through the treatment.
The entire KH team is ready to make your experience the best possible. Whichever department you choose, we hope to provide you and your partner with a safe and secure framework around the treatment. Many of the doctors and other employees will find you at several of the departments on a regular basis.
We have branches in Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger & Haugesund
