In the journey through infertility treatment, some women learn they have a gynecological issue interfering with their ability to conceive that can be corrected through a surgical procedure.

The specialists in Yale Medicine’s Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility have expertise in minimally invasive gynecological surgery that often resolves a woman’s infertility problem so that she can successfully conceive and carry a child.

“What’s unique is the continuity of care we offer patients,” says Pinar Kodaman, MD, PhD, director of the Advanced Endoscopic Reproductive Surgery Program. “A woman might come to us for management of a condition such as fibroids. She will have surgery, and then we will work with her at the Yale Fertility Center to help her achieve pregnancy. Down the road, if she needs a hysterectomy, we can do that, too.”
