Our Louisiana infertility specialists are trained to treat complex cases of infertility
An infertility specialist is a physician who dedicates a majority or all of his or her time and training to the treatment of infertility and is usually associated with a fertility center or “program”. This commitment is necessary for the physician to stay abreast of the rapid technological advances being made in the field. In addition, advanced fertility treatments are time and labor intensive requiring the physician and his staff to be available seven days a week in order to accommodate those procedures that need to be performed over the weekend.
The infertility specialist usually has his or her facility and medical program designed to accommodate the needs of the infertility patient. This means that the appropriate laboratory equipment and staff are in place to handle the timing and coordination of the sometimes complicated medication schedules, and testing and treatment plans.
Typically, the infertility specialist is a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE). An RE is a physician who completes a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology (4 years) and who has completed a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (usually 3 additional years). Reproductive endocrinologists also have the expertise to test for and treat an array of infertility issues in men as well.
