Welcome to the

Fertility Center

Whether you want to start a family now or preserve your fertility for the future, our experts can help.

At NYU Langone’s Fertility Center, we understand the challenges that come with building a family. Since 1992, we’ve helped thousands of women and men have successful pregnancies on their own timetable—as soon as possible through in vitro fertilization, or later through egg freezing and cryopreservation. 

Our team—including board-certified reproductive endocrine and infertility specialists, nurses, and lab professionals—focuses solely on the needs of people dealing with fertility questions or concerns. 

Our pregnancy rates are just one measure of our success. We are world leaders in egg freezing, performing more than 500 egg freezing cycles annually. Our physicians also pioneered preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) testing, which helps us identify the healthiest embryos that have the greatest chance of resulting in pregnancy. And in 2013, NYU Langone’s Fertility Center received the Hope Award for Achievement from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.

We are committed to developing innovative approaches to achieving pregnancy and preserving fertility. No matter what stage you are on in your journey toward building a family, the doctors and staff at the Fertility Center want to help you realize your dreams. 

Your Initial Consultation

If you have been trying to conceive for six months or longer without success, or are thinking about fertility preservation, we invite you to schedule an initial consultation. Our fertility experts develop a plan and identify tests and exams best suited to your particular situation.

When you come for your first visit, please bring your medical records if you were treated by any previous fertility specialists. If you have already undergone a hysterosalpingogram, which is an X-ray to check for problems with the uterus or fallopian tubes, please bring the X-ray film or disc with you, as well as the report. Your doctor can determine if additional testing is required. 

To schedule your initial consultation with the Fertility Center, please call 212-263-8990.
