Our Training and Reproductive Services
All of our physicians are subspecialty-certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. This is a subspecialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology requiring 3 additional years of training (following a 4-year Ob/Gyn residency) and includes specialty surgical training in minimally invasive techniques to maximize fertility. Our physicians have successfully passed oral and written examinations to gain this recognition which is held by less than 1,000 physicians in the United States. In addition to being the experts in all aspects of infertility, we are also experts in other hormonal problems of women, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, recurrent miscarriage, premature ovarian failure, uterine fibroids, irregular or absent menstrual periods, and abnormalities of the female genital tract from birth (termed congenital anomalies). We have the training to deal with these issues, both medically and surgically, as consultants for the region’s obstetrician/gynecologists, family physicians, medical endocrinologists and internists. We are the regional referral center for all of these issues and you do not need a referral from your physician to see us if you have one of these conditions.
Our clinic provides services in a convenient location and in an environment of personalized care, understanding and compassion. Our fertility specialists and staff are truly invested in each patient’s personal well-being and success. One of the missions of our center is education. This extends to both our couples and obstetrics and gynecology residents from the University of Virginia. All three physicians are active faculty members at the University of Virginia School of Medicine and we help teach physicians-in-training and support university-wide research in reproductive medicine. This allows us to stay at the cutting edge of the latest trends and advances in our field.
We believe in a team approach between our patients and our staff and we look forward to partnering with you to help you achieve your goals in reproductive care.
