Northwestern Memorial named one of nation's top 12 hospital-affiliated infertility clinics

The division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Northwestern Memorial Hospital has been named one of the top 12 hospital-affiliated infertility clinics in the country and one of the Midwest's top three, according to a list published in the July, 2004 issue of Town & Country magazine.

Northwestern Memorial's multidisciplinary team of reproductive endocrinologists and scientists is known for its outstanding pregnancy rates, together with one of the lowest rates of triplets in the country.

Ralph R. Kazer, M.D., chief of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Northwestern Memorial, was spotlighted as a top doctor associated with Northwestern's renowned program. "Our unit was very excited to have received this recognition," said Dr. Kazer. "Our success reflects the cumulative efforts of a large and dedicated group of individuals."

Northwestern's team, comprised of five full-time physicians and three Ph.D.'s, provides a wide range of clinical services for women with various gynecologic, hormonal and reproductive disorders. These doctors are also engaged in a number of clinical research projects related to new treatments for age-related infertility, patients requiring in vitro fertilization (IVF), as well as cancer and reproduction.

The program's faculty and staff members currently perform over 500 oocyte retrievals per year. They offer embryo cryopreservation, micromanipulation, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). Donor insemination, ovulation induction with on site ultrasound evaluation and contemporary surgical approaches to infertility are also provided. In addition, they offer a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic options for infertile patients or couples, including patients with endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and various reproductive endocrinopathies.
