Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility
Glenn Schattman

"All patients at The Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine receive care that is customized in light of their unique history and circumstances. In addition to offering the full range of reproductive medical treatments, I am an expert at using minimally invasive surgery to correct anatomic problems that are preventing patients from becoming pregnant. Many of these patients thought that IVF was their only option."

Dr. Glenn L. Schattman is an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine at The Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine (CRM) at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Schattman is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. He is a noted specialist in in vitro fertilization (IVF), fertility preservation, minimally invasive reproductive surgery and problems of sexual development in girls and young women.

Fertility Preservation at CRM: Dr. Schattman has an expertise in caring for patients who are considering preserving or extending their fertility by freezing oocytes (eggs) or embryos. Tissue freezing is an option for women in a wide range of circumstances, including those who may have difficulty getting pregnant after cancer treatment. For more information about CRM's fertility preservation services, contact Justine Witzke at (646) 962-5450.

Reproductive Surgery: In addition to his clinical work and research in fertility preservation, Dr. Schattman is a leading minimally invasive surgeon. He was one of the first gynecologic surgeons to perform robotic surgery for reversal of tubal ligation and excision of uterine fibroids. Dr. Schattman is particularly experienced in the use of advanced surgical methods to treat common causes of infertility such as blocked fallopian tubes, intrauterine adhesions, endometriosis and ovarian cysts. He also uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat gynecologic conditions including abnormal uterine bleeding and uterine malformations.

Dr. Schattman earned a Bachelor of Science from St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, in 1983 and his medical degree from the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center, in Brooklyn, New York, in 1987. He completed his residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The George Washington University Medical Center in 1991. He finished his training with a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Center for Reproductive Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and became a CRM faculty member in 1993.

Dr. Schattman is the 2011-2012 President of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), a world-leading reproductive medicine society. He was the Chair of SART's Practice Committee from 2004 to 2009 and is a member or Fellow of numerous medical associations, including the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. Dr. Schattman has authored numerous articles and textbook chapters and lectures both nationally and internationally on a wide range of topics in reproductive medicine.

Dr. Schattman sees patients at CRM's Manhattan office. Please call (646) 962-3836 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
