American Urological Association (AUA) Bruce Stewart Memorial Lecture: Compelling Evidence that Collaboration with Qualified Male Reproductive Urologists Improves ART Outcomes | Monday, Oct. 18, 3:00 – 3:45 pm

We are excited to introduce Marc Goldstein, M.D., D.Sc. (hon) as a lecture speaker at the ASRM 2021 Scientific Congress & Expo. He will be sharing American Urological Association (AUA) Bruce Stewart Memorial Lecture: Compelling Evidence that Collaboration with Qualified Male Reproductive Urologists Improves ART Outcomes on Monday, October 18, 2021, 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm. This lecture is supported by a grant from the American Urological Association.

Recent advances in our understanding of sperm pathophysiology have important implications for oocyte fertilization, embryo and blastocyst development, implantation, ongoing pregnancy, and live birth rates. Accumulating evidence indicates that the ability to diagnose and treat male factor contributes to significantly improved outcomes for intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection, even when PGS and its derivatives are employed. It will demonstrate that proper treatment of male factor can upgrade male fertility from only donor sperm or adoption to testicular sperm for IVF/ICSI to ejaculated sperm for IVF/ICSI to IUI and even naturally conceived pregnancy. This lecture will examine this evidence and describe the required qualifications for male reproductive urologists to be effective collaborators.
