reproductive endocrinologist
(REE-proh-DUK-tiv EN-doh-krih-NAH-loh-jist)
A doctor who has special training in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. A reproductive endocrinologist may use surgery, medicine, or procedures, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), to treat infertility. A reproductive endocrinologist may also use procedures, such as sperm banking and egg freezing, to help keep a person’s ability to have children. This is called fertility preservation.
