I have an extensive experience in IVF in women with low response to ovarian stimulation, PCOS, preservation of fertility including ovarian stimulation in estrogen sensitive cancers (e.g breast cancer), oocyte freezing and male factor infertility as well as endoscopic surgery.

My research interests include improving outcomes in women with diminished ovarian reserve, the effects of ovarian stimulation on breast cancer and methods of egg and ovarian tissue freezing. My research has been published in many leading journals as The Journal of Clinical Oncology, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism and Fertility & Sterility. I lectured to physicians, nurses, genetic counselors and patients around the world on the subject of fertility preservation.

At New York City IVF, my approach is giving you insight into you fertility factors in a private and stress free atmosphere. Following initial workup will sit together and put a fertility plan that is simplest and most likely to succeed in achieving your reproductive goals. We do not believe in pushing you to make quick treatment decisions.
