Expert Care and Treatment for Every Condition
We offer expertise across the full range of conditions impacting fertility.
- Female reproductive disorders – Our reproductive endocrinology specialists help women with reproductive health issues including prior IVF failures, infertility after tubal ligation, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), ovulation dysfunction and anovulation, uterine malformations, diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), endometriosis, genetic diagnosis, amenorrhea, thyroid dysfunction, hyperprolactinemia, hirsutism and recurrent pregnancy loss, among others.

The department’s specialized laboratory is one of only a few devoted exclusively to male reproductive health testing.
We are known for solving even the most challenging fertility issues, from highly complex endocrinology cases to unique congenital anomalies of the reproductive tract.
We offer services for every need and a conservative approach to treatment that focuses on the least expensive, least invasive techniques first.
Fertility Preservation for Cancer Patients
We partner with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to provide young women facing cancer the option of preserving their fertility before undergoing cancer treatments.
For many young women, a devastating cancer diagnosis is followed by the fear of infertility from treatments like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
We offer these patients new hope for fertility after cancer, counseling women on the latest fertility options based on their unique cancer and collaborating with their oncologist to preserve the patient’s fertility before cancer treatment begins.
