Welcome to Bluegrass Fertility Center
Infertility can be a very frustrating, emotional and private disease affecting approximately 15% of all couples. Fortunately, most patients
seeking treatment are ultimately successful in achieving a pregnancy. At Bluegrass Fertility Center, we seek to provide “state of the art” fertility therapy in a caring and compassionate setting.
All fertility doctors working at Bluegrass Fertility Center are board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and are members of the prestigious Society for Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (www.socrei.org).
In addition, your OB-GYN or primary care physician may have referred you to Bluegrass Fertility Center for special testing or procedures such as semen analysis or sperm washing for intrauterine inseminations.
We respect your need for privacy while undergoing these emotional procedures in order to conceive. For men, a private collection room is available or the specimen can be brought in from home in a provided container if kept at body temperature and less than 1 hour old. Egg retrievals are performed in an onsite operating room under general anesthesia by Board Certified Anesthesiologists.
Patient visits and consultations take place at our Central Baptist Hospital Campus Location at 1760 Nicholasville Road, Suite 501, Lexington, KY 40503.
