Wayne Health’s Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialists are dedicated to helping couples who are trying to conceive, offering a full range of basic to advanced treatments provided with sensitivity and compassion. An innovative force in infertility care in Michigan, we specialize in helping couples whose prognosis for conception is low.
Our specialists are affiliated with the department of Obstetrics & Gynecology of the Wayne State University School of Medicine, one of the nation’s top medical schools. Our specialists are also associated with and perform basic science research at Wayne State University’s C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development. This is a 28,000 square-foot research facility that includes more than 20 dedicated scientists with varied interests and specialization ranging from infectious diseases, ovarian cancer biology, epigenomics, molecular medicine and genetics, psychiatry and behavioral sciences, neurosciences, placenta and endometrial biology, obesity and applied genomics.
For female fertility evaluation, our team runs tests at specific times during the menstrual cycle to gather the most accurate information. These tests and procedures include: evaluation of ovarian reserve (remaining egg supply); ovulation measurement and stimulation; hormone testing; transvaginal ultrasound imaging of pelvic organs; testing of uterine cavity and fallopian tubes (sonohysterography); and semen analysis. We use a variety of methods to accurately predict the timing of ovulation and advise couples on lifestyle changes to enhance conception.
Male factor infertility is present in about half of couples seeking infertility evaluation and testing. We offer semen analysis to assess sperm count and motility; intrauterine insemination for men with abnormal semen analysis; outpatient surgical sperm recovery for men with low or no sperm; in vitro fertilization with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for couples with low sperm count, low motility and or low morphology. We also offer egg freezing for those who want to preserve their fertility either because they are about to face genotoxic therapy for cancer or because they want to postpone getting pregnant to concentrate on their careers or do not have a partner and are facing advancing age. In collaboration with a urologist, we offer clinic-based vasectomy reversals for men who qualify for the service. We also offer sperm cryopreservation for patients facing chemotherapy and for veterans and other men traveling away from home.
Because many insurance plans do not cover infertility services, we offer competitive pricing and financial counseling once you have established fertility care with one of our physicians.
Wayne Health physicians and researchers are faculty at the Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct basic research and clinical studies. This can make the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other providers without a medical school affiliation.
For more than a century, the Wayne State University Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology has been a leader in women’s health care in metropolitan Detroit, providing medical services for women throughout their lifetimes. Our physicians and researchers are consistently ranked among the best in the nation, and are dedicated to providing the best patient care, teaching future physicians and conducting innovative research to advance medicine for all.
