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:

  • Learn to identify the exact timing of ovulation to know when you are most likely to get pregnant
  • Identify and treat the underlying cause of infertility, instead of simply “working around it”
  • Improve your long-term health with targeted medical and surgical treatments
  • Achieve pregnancy naturally
  • Save money! Insurance covers the diagnosis and treatment of conditions which cause infertility

Dr. Puthoff also provides medical and surgical treatments for patients with other gynecologic issues apart from infertility.

Our Services

Mercy Clinic Fertility Services offers comprehensive diagnostic services as well as specialized medical and surgical treatments to correct the problems you’re experiencing.

In addition to Creighton Model tracking of the menstrual cycle, we offer the following diagnostic tests and procedures:

  • Targeted hormone testing
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)
  • Diagnostic hysteroscopy
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy

We provide medical and surgical treatments for the following conditions:

  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Infertility
  • Recurrent miscarriage
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Tubal blockage
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Painful or heavy periods
  • Complete absence of periods (amenorrhea)
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Chronic endometritis
  • Cesarean scar defects (isthmocele)

The medical treatments we provide cooperate with your normal menstrual cycle and do not suppress your natural fertility. Because the surgical treatments we offer are performed by a minimally invasive laparoscopic approach, most patients go home the same day as their surgery. Recovery is generally quick and most women can return to work and their normal activities within two weeks following surgery.
