Today’s guest is Dr. Craig Niederberger, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and board certified urologist specializing in male infertility. He and Heather discuss the role a reproductive urologist plays in treating male infertility, the latest research in the field, and so much more.
- Is a reproductive endocrinologist the best person to treat both female and male infertility? At what point should a urologist become involved, and what role does this professional play?
- Outside of your duties as a professor, what does a day in the life of Dr. Craig Niederberger look like?
- Take me through a typical first appointment with you. What information are you seeking, and what questions should patients be prepared to ask?
- What tests do you typically run to test for male factor infertility, and what results indicate there is or could be a problem?
- What infertility diagnoses does a reproductive urologist treat, and what are the treatment options for each?
- Do most fertility clinics have a urologist in-house, or is it more standard to have to find your own?
- Is there any new, exciting research you’ve read recently about male factor infertility?
- Tell me about a couple of your most memorable success stories.
- Is there anything else you’d like to add?
