|Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility|
Welcome to UAB Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI), a division of the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University Of Alabama School Of Medicine at UAB. We provide comprehensive evaluation of infertility and hormonal disturbances affecting reproduction with specialized surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Our board certified, fellowship trained specialists are at the forefront of the latest treatment advances and participate in ground breaking research. Additionally, we are experts in cancer and fertility preservation, and offer the most advanced treatments for fertility preservation and restoration.
Dr. G. Wright Bates, M.D., Division Director, oversees the only REI Fellowship program in the state and one of only two in the Southeast through which we train subspecialists in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. The goal of the fellowship program is to provide advanced training in endoscopic and microsurgical surgery, in vitro fertilization and other infertility treatments, and in the management of complex problems in reproductive endocrinology. In addition, fellows learn skills in basic science and clinical research so that they may contribute new knowledge to the field in the future.
Clinically, we offer fertility options for individuals and couples, using state-of-the-art technologies in diagnosing and treating infertility including in-depth consultation, drug therapy and surgical therapy through our Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. The UAB In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is a new state of the art facility with the latest technology designed to optimize patient experience and success in achieving a healthy pregnancy. Additionally, as a University affiliated infertility practice, we understand that a serious medical condition like cancer may threaten an individual or couple's chance of having children in the future, and work to assist patients and their oncologists in deciding which options are best for you with regards to fertility. The latest in pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) or screening (PGS) is also offered to increase a couple’s chances of having a healthy child.
