Leading embryologist in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

The heart of our clinic is MVDr. Daniel Hlinka, PhD, who pioneered human embryology in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In 1993 he oversaw the first ICSI conception in this region. He has spent over 35 years helping people achieve their dreams of starting a family, and now he is putting that experience to work in opening his own clinic. Dr. Hlinka has assembled a team of highly skilled doctors and nurses to take care of you while you are at CLAYO CLINIC. Your personal coordinator will stay with you the entire time, offering explanations and alleviating any concerns you may have. We will become your family for a little while – until you start your own.

Experience supported by technology

Throughout his career, Dr. Hlinka has brought the field of embryology a number of important innovations, which other practitioners have adopted in turn. We always try to stay a step ahead. We are currently working on developing an AI-driven noninvasive tool to predict your chances of conception with a high level of precision and recommend the ideal treatment path. This will allow us to provide you with the best possible care and optimize your chances of successful conception.

  • Empathy first
  • Modern treatment methods
  • Technology we designed


Your success is our success

Everyone's path to conception is different, so we never see you as simply another number in our statistics. We guarantee you an open, honest approach and precise calculation of your chances at conception. Based on the results we will recommend a treatment plan for you. Our wide-ranging experience with patients and the technology we helped develop mean we can tell you exactly what to expect at each stage of the process, easing the financial and mental strain as much as possible. As far as we are concerned, more information from us means more time for you to focus on planning your future family.

MVDr. Daniel Hlinka, PhD.

Daniel Hlinka is a pioneer of human embryology in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In 1993 he oversaw the first successful implantation using ICSI, a method in which pre-selected sperm are injected into the egg under a microscope, and since that time he has been gathering experience as an embryologist in a number of leading assisted reproduction clinics.

Dr. Hlinka is well-known in embryology circles especially for his introduction of micromanipulation methods and other innovative technologies into common practice, including time-lapse analysis of embryo development and OptimFert, a method for correctly timing embryo transfer.

In 2009 he co-founded the Prague Fertility Centre. He has spent the last three years focusing on developing CATI (Cognitive Automation of Time-lapse Images), an AI-driven tool for noninvasive monitoring, assessment and selection of the most suitable embryos. This raises the chances of successful conception significantly.
