I’m excited to be writing the first post for our new blog! I say this all the time, but back in the day, when Michael Jordan and Oprah were in Chicago, I used to say I had the third best job in the city. With their absence, I guess I have the best! As a successful reproductive endocrinologist and minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon, I am fortunate enough to lecture around the world, conduct research and contribute scholarly articles to scientific journals and textbooks. However, what really motivates me is the opportunity to take care of you and help you achieve your health goals, and for many of you, help grow your family tree. That’s why this blog is for you.
I want this blog to be a resource for those seeking information about infertility treatment or gynecologic care. We will be discussing the latest in women’s health topics and sharing relevant information, research and news stories. I am so intrigued by all the medical and surgical advances we have seen since I was a medical student and look forward to sharing my thoughts as they continue to develop and expand. Not only will you hear insights from me, but also Dr. Cholkeri-Singh, Dr. Sasaki and other staff members.
I also hope to use this blog as a dialogue for my patients and anyone else who is looking for support with infertility or gynecologic care. I will write about topics you will hopefully find inspiring, offering you the strength and courage to continue to face treatments or surgery head on.
One of the best parts of being a physician is getting to know my patients and helping them resolve issues – whether it’s the resolution of pain and bleeding or finding just the right treatment plan to help a couple achieve pregnancy and fulfill their dreams of starting a family.
You’ll also hear from patients who will share their stories and journeys in hopes to show you that you are not alone in your struggle. It is a process – a very personal one, that can be long and with ups and downs — and we are with you all the way through it.
My incredible staff will be highlighted in this blog. They are truly amazing and the backbone of my practice. Each month a staff member will be featured so you can get to know them better.
Lastly, I want to hear from you. Do you have questions about infertility, uterine fibroid treatment or endometriosis? Do you have a success story you would like to share that might give others hope?
