The REI division diagnoses and treats pubertal abnormalities, reproductive tract anomalies, menstrual cycle irregularities as well as heavy and painful menstrual cycles. The division also provides transgender and menopausal hormonal therapy.
The REI division offers the full range of fertility care in conjunction with the IU School of Medicine Department of Urology and the Center for Reproductive Biology. This includes ovulation induction, superovulation, intrauterine insemination (IUI) with both donor and partner sperm, in vitro fertilization (IVF), elective oocyte cryopreservation, oncofertility and preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A). Microscopic tubal reanastomosis due to a prior tubal ligation can be done for the appropriate patient.
Working with the OB-GYN department’s Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) has allowed the REI division to incorporate additional tubal surgical procedures for nonfunctional tubes due to infections or endometriosis as well as surgical repair of cesarean section scar defects, which can lead to improved fertility in a significant number of women.
The division has seen an increase in patient visits over the last several years and looks forward to continued growth and continued work with residents and medical students.
