Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility


More than 30 years after the birth of Louise Brown, the frst child born as a result of in vitro fertilization, the practice of reproductive medicine has grown and evolved in a dramatic and profound fashion. Classical reproductive endocrinology and surgery remain important components of clinical practice, but they are joined with major developments in the laboratory and clinic that have opened the doors of therapy to millions. Furthermore, the outlook for the future is stunning, including novel technologies that may facilitate quantum advances in the clinic and laboratory.
The advances made in the treatment of infertility have made the care of infertile patients more successful, rewarding, and exciting. However, management of the modern reproductive endocrinology and infertility clinic has become very complex. In addition to the medical and scientifc knowledge necessary to manage a clinic and laboratory, the modern director must have an understanding of such disparate felds as marketing, accounting, management, and 
regulatory issues. It is impractical to obtain such a broad range of experience during a doctoral or fellowship program and diffcult to follow the advances of each feld through traditional methods. This book was developed to assist the practicing reproductive endocrinologist and/or laboratory director by providing an overview of relevant scientifc, medical, and management issues in a single volume. While no book can cover everything associated with managing a 
reproductive endocrinology clinic and laboratory, we have enlisted experts from all relevant areas to provide concise, practical, and evidence based summaries of relevant topics. It is our hope that this resource will be of assistance to physicians and scientists engaged in this exciting feld of medicine.
