Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
Our community of obstetrician/gynecologists provide initial reproductive medicine services to our patients. Patients who need additional treatment are referred to Mass General/North Shore Obstetrics and Gynecology, a collaborative practice of physicians from Salem Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Fertility patients receive initial fertility work-up and diagnosis, ovulation induction, pregnancy testing, ultrasound, blood monitoring and physician follow up at the collaborative practice in Danvers, while egg retrieval and embryo transfer are performed at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
