Our Fertility team provides evaluation and treatment of infertility, as well as disorders affecting reproductive health, treating women from puberty through menopause.
Our services run the gamut of both medical and surgical treatments including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surgical alternatives such as robotic-assisted reproductive surgery and advanced laparoscopy or hysteroscopy.
We also conduct a significant number of clinical trials, dedicated to improving our understanding of fertility disorders and developing new treatments.
Investigations are currently underway to identify the mechanisms that cause fertility and infertility. UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers are evaluating the role of the anterior pituitary in the onset of fertility, as well as its cessation during menopause.

Following this evaluation, our specialists will recommend an individualized treatment program based on your condition, medical history, goals, and preferences.
