Dr. Boris Yaguda

Anesthesiologist

(Example Description)

As a board certified reproductive endocrinologist, specializing in the field of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), it has been my life’s work to help build families. Many of my patients come to me with little hope and often misdiagnosis’. I have been influential in the births of more than 6000 IVF babies, and with 20 plus years of experience, many of my findings have been incorporated into treatment protocols from around the world.

In this blog I hope to educate hopeful mothers on the latest advances in reproductive medicine and infertility. I will also cover case studies. Feel free to comment on my posts and I will always do my best to answer all of your questions.
