New Chief Outlines Vision for Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility

Orhan Bukulmez, M.D., the new Chief of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at UT Southwestern Medical Center, brings extensive clinical and research expertise, having directed the in vitro fertilization and egg donation programs at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville, Florida.

A native of Turkey, Dr. Bukulmez received fellowship training at both UT Southwestern and Yale University School of Medicine, where his research interests included endometriosis and genomic regulation in reproductive tissues.

“Our vision is to provide state-of-the-art infertility diagnosis and treatment while developing cutting-edge technologies for future reproductive medicine,” said Dr. Bukulmez. “We are devoted to training physicians and will continue to lead in advocating reproductive health in our community.”

UT Southwestern specialists combine the latest research with technological advances to develop a highly individualized treatment protocol for each patient, which may include intrauterine insemination, innovative ovarian stimulation regimens, or in vitro fertilization.

“We understand the feelings of uncertainty, frustration, and hopelessness associated with not being able to conceive,” said Dr. Bukulmez. “We know that time is of the essence, and we focus on providing top-notch and cost-effective services.”

The fertility team at UT Southwestern promotes close interaction and strong collaboration with physicians in the community and also makes referrals for high-risk pregnancies, when necessary, to its renowned Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine.

UT Southwestern is the only academic institution in the region with an in vitro fertilization center, and its infertility specialists train many of the nation’s future reproductive endocrinologists.

UT Southwestern Fertility and Advanced Reproductive Medicine is located on the sixth floor of the new Outpatient Building, 1801 Inwood Road, with valet or self-parking available.
