Our Team

Starting a family can be a very exciting time in your life but taking the first steps can be stressful. Finding the right team of doctors to help you navigate the ever-changing world of fertility can be challenging. Fortunately, the doctors and staff at Sher Fertility Solutions (SFS) Headquartered in New York (with a satellite office in Las Vegas, NV) offer a unique mix of innovative, cutting-edge technology and attentive patient care that you won’t find anywhere else.

The team at SFS recognizes the physical and emotional struggles that accompany infertility, and their approach is designed to make each patient feel as comfortable as possible. SFS prides itself on an individualized problem-solving approach coupled with truly compassionate care. Each visit is by appointment, and you will never have to deal with massive early morning crowds. At SFS, you will see the same physician, your physician, at every visit, and have 24/7 access to the most accessible and dependable team.

The emphasis that SFS puts on innovative, state-of-the-art technology began with its founder, Dr. Geoffrey Sher, one of the pioneers in the field of IVF, who has been influential in the births of more than 17,000 IVF babies. Dr. Sher plays an active role alongside SFS’ medical director Dr. Drew Tortoriello. Together the two doctors have over 55 years of clinical and academic experience in the field of Reproductive Medicine.

SFS offers a variety of unique services that help patients explore the causes and treatments of their infertility. In 2005, Drs. Sher and Tortoriello were the first to introduce Preimplantation Genetic Testing/sampling (PGT-a/PGS-a), which assessed all 23 pairs of an embryo’s chromosomes into the clinical field of IVF. This procedure, which is now performed worldwide, helps select chromosomally normal embryos for transfer to the uterus, vastly increasing the chances of IVF success. The SFS team also pioneered testing and treatment of immunologic implantation Dysfunction (IID) that frequently leads to “unexplained” infertility, repeated IVF failure, and recurrent miscarriage. SFS is able to conduct a variety of other treatments and tests right on site. For example, rather than sending specimens to a lab and waiting for results, SFS offers on-site sperm testing to ensure that proper sperm selection techniques are utilized to create the healthiest possible embryos.

For those women seeking to preserve their fertility, SFS offers vitrification, a state-of-the-art oocyte cryopreservation technology, affording women who choose this option the comfort of knowing their eggs will ultimately be thawed successfully.

For those couples seeking embryo adoption, SFS is proud to serve as the preferred affiliate of Snowflakes, a foundation devoted to providing couples this wonderful option. In addition, SFS is well versed in gestational surrogacy for those seeking to pursue this option, especially now given the recent expansion of the New York state surrogacy law.

SFS recognizes that its patients lead busy lives and that fertility treatments shouldn’t be overly disruptive. Their structured programs run on tight time schedules in a sincere effort to minimize delay, inconvenience, and overall time spent in the office.
