From the Big Apple to the Jersey Shore
Thanks for checking out my blog. I recently moved from Columbia University in New York to Damien Fertility Partners at the Jersey Shore to help build what we hope will be the best infertility practice in the area.
I began my career at Columbia University, a busy and successful practice in New York, where I learned some of the most cutting edge practices in the treatment of infertility. Now is the time to apply my experiences in a more personalized, patient focused, comfortable setting!
My blog is designed to give patients answers to some of the “everyday” questions that I get in the office – and at the supermarket! I hope that it will take some of the mystery out of what we do every day and start you on the right road to fertility.
Much of what I do on a daily basis is planning the next step in treatment for a fertility patient. While some patients know from the start what they want to do and when they want to do it, many eventually come to a crossroads in their care. The first line of treatment has not gotten results and and they are ready to take the next step. When, what, and how to proceed become the most important questions that we need to answer together.
I got a call from one of my favorite patients last week. She had recently undergone in vitro fertilization (IVF) and we had transferred 2 beautiful 5 day old embryos. She had been reading online and was concerned about our transfer technique. Why didn’t we use ultrasound? Where did we place the embryos within the uterus? Did we use the best technique and why?
