Dr. Kathleen Droesch
Dr. Droesh did her reproductive endocrinology fellowship at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Norfolk, Virginia from 1986-1988. After her post-graduate training, she joined the medical school faculty at SUNY at Stony Brook as an Assistant Professor. Dr. Droesch is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and reproductive endocrinology. She has published extensively on novel topics and treatments in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Her areas of special interest include ovum donation and oocyte cryopreservation for patients preparing for chemotherapy. In 1994, she joined the staff at Long Island IVF, the most successful IVF program on Long Island.
As a resident in obstetrics and gynecology, I had the opportunity to work with a marvelous reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. Fred Benjamin. His intuitive teaching abilities opened my eyes to the fascinating field of reproductive medicine. The concept that our knowledge of biochemistry and cellular kinetics could be transferred into the miraculous clinical result of overcoming infertility, crystallized my career choice.
The wonder has never lessened because infertility is such an intensely private matter, it makes each success a special and singular triumph.
