"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."
