Shady Grove Fertility Launches July Infertility Education Series: Seminars & Webcasts for Prospective Patients to Learn More about their Fertility


Physician experts from Shady Grove Fertility will engage in live Q&As during free online webcasts and in-person seminars throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. about getting started with fertility treatment, male factor infertility, financial programs, and much more.

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) June 24, 2016

Shady Grove Fertility, the largest fertility practice in the nation—celebrating 25 years and more than 40,000 babies born—is hosting a series of seminars and webcasts throughout the month of July for individuals and couples who are having difficulty conceiving and want to learn more about the types of fertility treatment options and unique financial programs offered exclusively to Shady Grove Fertility patients.

Taking the first step to learn about fertility treatment is often the most important one. Many individuals and couples are unsure where to begin, what options are available to them, and if insurance covers treatment. These are just a few of the many questions that will be addressed at the Fertility Options Seminars taking place across Shady Grove Fertility offices in the coming weeks.

"The Fertility Options Seminars are a wonderful initial step in introducing prospective and new patients to our practice and to demonstrate how we value personalized care for each and every patient. Our patient to physician relationship begins by educating the community about infertility and bringing individuals one step closer to achieving parenthood," says Eugene Katz, M.D. of Shady Grove Fertility's Towson, MD, office. Dr. Katz will present the Fertility Options seminar in Towson, MD, on Tuesday, July 12 at 6:30 p.m.

A fact that is surprising to many couples is that 40 to 50 percent of infertility is caused in part or in whole by a male factor. Shady Grove Fertility's full-time board certified urologist and male fertility specialist, Paul R. Shin, M.D., will be hosting a free online webcast about male factor infertility. During the webcast Dr. Shin will discuss what's involved in diagnosing male factor infertility and how couples overcome male factor infertility with treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF).

"Our webcasts are a powerful online platform that educates individuals about infertility and provides participants with the information they need to make an informed decision about seeking treatment," says Dr. Shin. The male factor infertility webcast will take place on Tuesday, July 19 at 6:30 p.m. EST.

With the most live births from fresh donor cycles, and the most live births from frozen donor cycles in the country, Shady Grove Fertility will also host a July webcast on Donor Egg Treatment. Isaac E. Sasson M.D., Ph.D., a reproductive endocrinologist in Shady Grove Fertility's Philadelphia area offices, will discuss the Donor Egg Program at Shady Grove Fertility. This program—the largest in the United States—has successfully matched over 6,000 couples with a qualified egg donor since its inception. During the webcast, Dr. Sasson will provide an in-depth view of the Donor Egg Program, as well as information about the Shared Donor Egg financial program offered exclusively to Shady Grove Fertility patients. This webcast will take place on Thursday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
