Our Team of Fertility Specialists
The board-certified reproductive endocrinologists at the Center for Fertility, Endocrine and Menopause have undergone many years of advanced training to ensure that each couple receives the highest quality of care available.
Our advanced reproductive technology staff is expertly qualified in all facets of in vitro fertilization and related procedures. Our PhD embryologist is noted for his outstanding work in areas such as preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
We also have a specialist in male infertility, which allows us to offer comprehensive evaluations of both partners in a single visit.
Our Specialized Approach to Infertility
Our reproductive endocrinologists, nurses and embryologists have the common goal of helping couples become pregnant in a supportive and caring environment. We seek to minimize the emotional, physical and financial stress often associated with fertility treatments and provide you with an individualized therapy plan.
Unfortunately, many times when patients finally decide to come to us, they have already undergone months of unsuccessful treatment. Sometimes, the most basic and important tests, such as semen analysis or female hormone evaluation, have not been done. This results in wasted time and emotional strain.
We thoroughly evaluate each couple and conduct all tests necessary to rule out the multiple potential causes of infertility in both the male and female. Once the causes have been identified, we work with each couple to determine the therapies most likely to result in pregnancy in the most cost effective manner.
The most appropriate treatment is not always the most advanced technology. We offer the full range of fertility treatments, from the simplest interventions, such as intrauterine insemination, to more advanced options, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Finally, we understand not just the physical nature of infertility, but also the emotional or spiritual aspects of your struggle.
Other than expertise within our group, we can assist you with local resources such as support groups, adoption programs and counseling. Our goal is to get you through the trial of infertility and on with your life.
