Infertile patients cannot afford to wait for treatment while their eggs get older.

Dr. Sherman Silber, Infertility Center of St. Louis, is offering free video consultations for patients who need to plan now for their treatment while stay-at-home orders are in place. He is talking to and evaluating patients in their home to comply with social distancing measures.

Dr. Silber is discovering that patients actually prefer this method of telemedicine consultation over the conventional office visit. Patients have conveyed that “it is so much more convenient and less stressful” to have a free telemedicine personal consultation than to take a day off from work to travel to the doctor’s office and sit with other nervous patients in the waiting room.

The COVID-19 pandemic is thus changing much of the way we will do things in the future, and for the better. “Our patients are surprisingly much happier with this approach. Of course, at some point we need to perform hands on treatment. But with this new manner of seeing patients, we can come to the right diagnosis and treatment plan for most patients more efficiently, quickly, and painlessly, with no loss of personal one-on-one communication.” This is a very welcome new era of telemedicine that has been forced on us by the current difficult times.

Types of Treatments

Dr. Sherman Silber, a renowned pioneer in microsurgery and infertility, is considered one of the world’s leading authorities in the field of infertility. This includes IVF, mini-IVF, sperm retrieval, ICSI, vasectomy reversal, male infertility, tubal ligation reversal, egg and embryo freezing, ovary transplantation and the reproductive biological clock.

IVF

(In Vitro Fertilization)

The husband’s sperm fertilize the wife’s eggs outside the body (in a test tube or culture dish), and the resulting embryos are then returned to her.

ICSI Icon

ICSI

(Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection)

A single sperm is injected directly into the egg. The development of ICSI has solved most if not all cases of male infertility.

Mini-IVF Icon

Mini-IVF

(Mini - In Vitro Fertilization)

A very unique approach to simplify IVF for patients, reducing the cost associated with more conventional IVF protocols while maintaining comparable success rates.

Vasectomy Reversal

(Microscopic Vasectomy Reversal)

Surgical repair of the vas deferens under high-powered magnification.

Preserving Your Fertility

  • Preserving Your Fertility

    An overview of the exciting new technologies to find out where you are on your biological clock and how to beat it, preserving your fertility indefinitely.

  • Ovarian Tissue Freezing

    A thin cortex of the ovary can be easily extracted and frozen, then re-grafted at a later date, restoring fertility. This is an outpatient procedure.

  • Antral Follicle Counting

    A brief, painless ultrasound procedure to determine precisely where you are on your biological clock, and how long you can expect your fertility to last naturally.

Microsurgery

  • MVR (Microscopic Vasectomy Reversal)

    Under high-powered magnification, the vas deferens is surgically repaired. But restoring fertility to men who have previously undergone vasectomy also requires much more delicate microsurgery to bypass secondary epididymal blockage found in 80% of vasectomized men.

  • Tubal Ligation Reversal

    For women who have previously undergone tubal ligation, we can also restore their fertility with a small incision and only one day in the hospital.

  • Sperm Aspiration for ICSI

    Sperm retrieval directly from the testicle or epididymis essentially eliminates male infertility.
    Success rates for microsurgical procedures depend very much on the skill and expertise of the surgeon who performs them.

  • Sperm Aspiration

    Sperm Aspiration is the technique for retrieving sperm directly from the testicles of men who have no sperm in the ejaculate.

  • Egg, Ovarian Tissue, Embryo,
    and Sperm Freezing and Storage

    With advanced cryogenic technology, egg, ovarian tissue, embryos, and sperm can be stored indefinitely to better ensure one’s future fertility. Beating the Clock? Frozen Ovaries Make Headlines – Freezing tissue preserves fertility of youth

  • Ovary Transplantation

    First with identical twins, now with non-identical sisters. Using the same technique to freeze the ovary before cancer treatment, we can hold your biological clock so you can have children at a later time.
