Reproductive Endocrinology at USA Health

Infertility is a common and treatable condition affecting both men and women. One in six couples have trouble becoming pregnant. Among those who pursue treatment for infertility, the majority are ultimately able to have children.

For patients struggling with fertility issues, USA Health offers reproductive endocrinology care that is as compassionate as it is advanced. Our team of reproductive endocrinologists, clinicians and technicians specialize in treating any number of issues that can affect fertility.

Our team cares for patients with concerns such as:

Multiple Miscarriages
For patients who have experienced two or more miscarriages, our team works to find the cause, which can include hormone levels, immunity issues, uterine structure, chromosomal anomalies and environmental factors.

Ovulation Induction
Around 25 percent of women who face fertility problems do so because of infrequent or the absence of ovulation. With ovulation induction, we use fertility drugs to increase egg production and stimulate the release of mature eggs to increase the chances of conception.

Ovulation Defects
Some patients have conditions after ovulation that prevent them from sustaining a pregnancy. These conditions can include progesterone production and uterine lining issues. Patients facing these issues may be candidates for fertility medications, intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

Sperm-Mucus Interaction
The chemical makeup of cervical mucus can affect a sperm’s ability to reach and fertilize an egg. There are several treatments for sperm-mucus interaction including antimicrobial therapy.

Therapies Used to Treat Infertility

USA Health offers multiple types of therapies and procedures that help with infertility.

Diagnostic Laparoscopy

This minimally invasive procedure can help our physicians find and identify causes of infertility.

Microsurgery

Microsurgery, or surgery performed with the assistance of a microscope, removes uterine fibroid tumors and treats Fallopian tube blockages.

Tubal Ligation Reversal

USA Health offers robot-assisted surgery to reconnect Fallopian tubes for women who have undergone tubal ligation and now want to become pregnant.

Genital Tract Anomalies Treatment

For patients with congenital abnormalities of the ovaries, uterus and vagina, we offer both surgical and non-surgical treatment options to increase the chances of conception and successful pregnancy.

In-vitro Fertilization

In-vitro fertilization, or IVF, involves removing a woman’s egg and fertilizing it with sperm in a laboratory setting. After several days of development, the fertilized egg is then implanted in the woman’s uterus.

Laser Surgery

Laser surgery is used for infertility, endometriosis and ectopic pregnancies. Women suffering from endometriosis, polyps, fibroid tumors, pelvic adhesions or structural anomalies may benefit from this precise surgical method.

Hormonal Replacement Therapies

Though usually thought of as a treatment for menopause, hormone replacement therapy can be an effective treatment for infertility. By increasing hormone levels, we help the body better regulate the reproductive cycle and increase the chances of becoming pregnant.

We’re also experts in fertility preservation. Our team performs minimally invasive robotic myomectomy to remove fibroid uterine tumors and preserve fertility.

We offer a peer-led support group where emotional, as well as ethical and medical, issues related to infertility are discussed and addressed.
