About John Petrozza, MD

Watch a video about my work

I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Texas at El Paso, majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. I matriculated to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston for medical school, and in 1988, also participated in a summer internship at the NIH working with the development of a rapid diagnostic skin test for people infected with Strongyloides stercoralis, before starting my clinical years. I completed my internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at LBJ Hospital and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston. I finally left Texas and ventured to the northeast, where I completed my fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at New England Medical Center (NEMC)/ Tufts Medical School. I continued on staff at NEMC for 6 years before coming to Massachusetts General Hospital.

Over my career, I have focused on the surgical aspect of infertility and reproduction. This includes endometriosis, fibroids, surgical repair of uterine anomalies and scar tissue, and repair of damaged fallopian tubes. I also co-direct the Mass General Integrated Fibroid Program. I have a strong interest in fertility treatment outcomes, reproductive surgery outcomes, environmental factors and reproduction, diversity in reproductive health care treatments.
