Mercy Clinic Fertility Services offers care for couples struggling with infertility – from an in-depth evaluation to advanced treatments that help couples achieve pregnancy naturally. Call us at (314) 251-8965 for a consultation.
Gavin Puthoff, MD, joined Mercy Clinic after completing a fellowship in Medical and Surgical NaProTECHNOLOGY (Natural Procreative Technology). With specialized training, Dr. Puthoff can perform a comprehensive evaluation to identify the underlying conditions that are keeping you from being able to achieve or maintain a healthy pregnancy. Specific medical or surgical treatments can then be used to correct these conditions, helping you achieve better health and improve your fertility.
The success rates with this restorative approach can be as high as 60-80 percent, which is higher than pregnancy rates achieved with assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). And because all NaPro pregnancies result from natural conception, they are not plagued by the risks associated with IVF.
Benefits of a NaPro approach to infertility:
Dr. Puthoff also provides medical and surgical treatments for patients with other gynecologic issues apart from infertility.
