Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility

The Section of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the VCU Medical Center consists of fellowship trained, board certified physicians in reproductive endocrinology and a dedicated nursing staff. The clinical capabilities of the section include a wide variety of comprehensive specialty care and consultative services. Doctors Coney, Lucidi and McGee offer specialized diagnosis and treatment in the areas of reproductive endocrinology and infertility and reproductive surgery including tubal reconstructive surgery, advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures for endometriosis, pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, pelvic adhesions and uterine abnormalities.

We offer evaluation of both female and male infertility and a full range of treatment capabilities including induction of ovulation, inseminations, in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). We also offer treatment for other problems such as recurrent miscarriage, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hirsuitism, amenorrhea, premature ovarian failure, symptoms of menopause, ovarian reserve assessment and hyperprolactinemia.

The faculty of the Reproductive Endocrinology Section are involved in both basic science and clinical research projects that are funded by several sources including the National Institutes of Health.
