A National Fertility Leader, Based in Boston

Our multidisciplinary team, led by John Petrozza, MD, is renowned for its clinical excellence in diagnosing, treating and supporting patients with infertility issues. Every year since 1991, U.S. News & World Report has rated Mass General among the country's top women's health care providers. All of our physicians are Harvard Medical School faculty and many have offices in both our downtown Boston location and affiliated suburban hospitals.

The Fertility Center is committed to tailoring treatment programs to best suit the needs of each patient. For details on IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies (ART) rates, please visit the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Multidisciplinary Care for Every Patient

Each patient's treatment team includes a physician, nurse, medical assistant and administrative assistant. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to offer close, individualized attention and maintain a supportive atmosphere. Throughout the process, the patient stays in control and involved in making every decision.

As part of a world-class academic teaching hospital, the Fertility Center also can give patients prompt, easy access to Mass General physicians and nurses in nearly every specialty and subspecialty. Our teams work closely with their colleagues elsewhere in the hospital to ensure patients receive treatments and services that will maximize the chances of getting pregnant. For patients who do not receive all of their care at Mass General, we strive to return patients to their community physician’s care as quickly as possible.

Developing More Advanced Infertility Treatments

Fertility Center physician-scientists are at the forefront of clinical research and basic science aimed at making a difference in the lives of those facing infertility. Our patients often have the opportunity to participate in clinical research programs exploring leading-edge techniques and technologies.
