Approximately 10 percent of childbearing-age couples experience infertility – the inability to conceive a child. This may be due to physical conditions of the female, the male, or both partners. There are many surgical and medical treatments that can help couples who are trying to conceive, from fertility-enhancing drugs to procedures such as in vitro fertilization. In addition to these traditional methods of infertility treatment, Methodist Obstetrics and Gynecology Group offers couples the opportunity to participate in continuing research through clinical trials of improved therapies.
As part of our ongoing commitment to groundbreaking research and advances in women’s health, The Methodist Hospital offers our patients the opportunity to participate in surgical and medical clinical trials.
