Call for an Appointment
For more information or to make an appointment, give us a call.
We provide medical care that covers the entire spectrum of hormonal issues in women as well as comprehensive fertility issues in women, men and couples. Because we are an academic medical center, your care is informed by the latest research and technology.
Some of the services we provide include the following:
In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF involves the retrieval of eggs from the ovaries and placing them with sperm in the laboratory for fertilization to occur. Fertilized eggs become embryos that are transferred in to uterus.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
ICSI is the microinjection of a single sperm into an egg. We do not do ICSI on all patients having IVF, but it is an excellent treatment for male factor fertility issues.
Ovulation induction and IUI
Many people do not need IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) or ART technologies to become pregnant. We also provide lower technology care and treatments.. For many patients and couples intrauterine insemination (IUI) can be an effective treatment and others may just need treatment to assist in ovulating and egg. We advise patients of all of the possible treatments available of the likelihood of success of each one based on their personal history and circumstance.
Donor Eggs and Sperm
We provide care for patients wishing to use donor sperm or donor eggs in their process toward parenthood.
We provide a full spectrum of fertility preservation services. We routinely crypreserve sperm for men undergoing treatments that may harm their fertility. We also provide egg retrieval and vitrification for fertility preservation for a variety of indications in women too.
Couples can undergo IVF and have embryos stored for future use.
All reproductive tissues and embryos are stored onsite in our certified facility. We do not subcontract storage of your tissues or embryos to a distant outside commercial center. They can stay right here in Vermont until you wish to use them. Or you can chose to have them sent to another fertility center if you relocate.
We also offer specialized care for:
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Abnormal menstruation
- Dysmenorrhea or painful periods
- Puberty issues
- Mullerian related birth defects
- Complex Menopause
- Sexual dysfunction
- Transgender care
- Uterine Fibroids
Gynecologic ultrasound uses sound waves to take pictures of your uterus, ovaries, cervix and fallopian tubes. Our gynecologic ultrasound unit is staffed by specialist sonographers and physicians who perform ultrasound studies for fertility diagnosis and management as well as gynecologic imaging for diagnosing disorders such as fibroids, uterine anomalies and ovarian masses.
