The Washington University Physician Advantage
General reproductive endocrinology offers the latest therapies to treat menopausal problems, such as hot flashes, and risks, such as related bone loss. Other conditions treated include: uterine fibroids and polyps; abnormal uterine development and scarring; endometriosis; abnormal bleeding and absence of menstrual periods; contraception problems; abnormal hair growth; polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and recurrent pregnancy loss (or recurrent
miscarriage), defined as the loss of three or more pregnancies.
All of the reproductive endocrinologist physicians at the Washington University School of Medicine have completed advanced training in reproductive endocrinology through a board-recognized fellowship program. All are either board-certified or board-eligible in the subspecialty of reproductive endocrinology.
The reproductive endocrinology division specialists participate in many multi-center clinical studies, in which new therapies are utilized to diagnose and treat conditions related to reproductive endocrinology, such as infertility, recurrent miscarriage, PCOS and the symptoms of menopause. See Clinical Trials.
Actual case studies of couples who have received treatment are available at the web site for the Washington University Infertility and Reproductive Medicine Center, the first center of this type established in Missouri.
