Women are increasingly delaying childbirth until their late 30s and early 40s, which for many is when they notice a dramatic decline in their fertility. In fact, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, approximately 65 percent of women over the age of 40 struggle with fertility problems. Yet, more people are waiting to have kids until they are older.
In combination with a growing awareness of options such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and egg freezing, fertility services have become an integral part of reproductive health for many women. Last year, NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York—one of the largest and most experienced fertility centers in the New York metro area—saw more than 5,000 new patients.
“NYU Langone has a longstanding commitment to advancing fertility-related scientific discovery and delivery of care,” says Andrew W. Brotman, MD, senior vice president and vice dean for clinical affairs and strategy and chief clinical officer at NYU Langone Health. “We’re excited to further expand access to our high-quality fertility services for patients seeking assistance in having a child who live or work outside of Manhattan.”
