Division Director's WelcomeWelcome to USF IVF and Reproductive Endocrinology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. Our mission is to lead the way in delivering the very best infertility and reproductive endocrine (REI) care available to our patients.Through treatments including fertility medicines, intrauterine insemination, IVF, and reproductive surgery, our team of fertility experts is committed to giving our patients the very best opportunity to achieve their dream of having a family. By collaborating with egg donors, sperm banks, and gestational surrogates, we are able to offer family building choices to women whose own eggs cannot produce a baby, to women who cannot carry their own babies, to single parents, and to same sex couples. By incorporating preimplantation genetic diagnosis, PGD, into IVF, we offer couples whose children are at risk of inheriting a genetic disease the ability to test embryos for the presence of the disease of concern. PGD also affords the opportunity for sex selection. At our Center for Fertility Preservation, we offer reproductive age men and women with cancer choices such embryo freezing, egg freezing, and sperm banking so that they will have an opportunity to achieve a family in the future even if cancer chemotherapy or radiation treatment affects their eggs or sperm. Additionally, healthy reproductive age women can freeze eggs for social or other non-cancer reasons. CFERT, the Center for Fibroid and Endometriosis Research and Treatment, provides women with uterine fibroids and endometriosis with the most current treatment options including minimally invasive surgery. Our reproductive endocrinology service is dedicated to treating women with endocrine disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), ovarian insufficiency or premature ovarian failure, and other causes of absent or irregular periods.
As Florida's largest university-based IVF and Reproductive Endocrinology program, our team is committed to providing state-of-the-art, comprehensive, individualized, patient-centered care to our patients.Shayne M. Plosker, MD, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Division Director
