The Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility was organized in 1981 at Grady Memorial Hospital with direction and supervision by full-time faculty members. Residents today have regular assignments to this division. Grady Hospital patients with infertility problems and gynecologic endocrine problems, including special endocrine evaluation and/or estrogen-progesterone therapy for menopausal symptoms, are referred to the division's clinic for evaluation and treatment, and patients requiring surgical intervention are scheduled for appropriate therapy, including microsurgical techniques, diagnostic and operative endoscopy (laparoscopy and hysteroscopy), conservative surgery for endometriosis, and correction of uterine and vaginal malformations. Surgery is supervised by full-time faculty members trained in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Faculty members of the division attend clinic sessions in which all patients are individually discussed and dispositioned. Didactic lectures are presented with residents in attendance.
Private patients are seen by division faculty at the Emory Reproductive Center located at Emory University Hospital Midtown and at The Emory Clinic facilities. Residents participate in the outpatient care and surgery provided to these patients. The Emory Reproductive Center at Emory University Hospital Midtown provides assisted reproductive technologies including IVF.
