Dr. Sherman Silber, a renowned pioneer in microsurgery and infertility, is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on IVF, mini-IVF,sperm retrieval , ICSI, vasectomy reversal, male infertility, tubal ligation reversal, egg and embryo freezing, ovary transplantation, and thereproductive biological clock. He performed the world’s first microsurgical vasectomy reversal, as well as the first testicle transplant, in the 70’s and now in the current century, the world’s first ovary transplant. He was the first to develop the TESE and MESA techniques for retrieving testicular and epididymal sperm in azoospermic men. He headed the clinical MIT team that first mapped and sequenced the Y chromosome in infertile men and discovered the now famous DAZ gene for male fertility. His research includes also the study of reproduction and fertility in zoo animals and endangered species. Most recently he has perfected the preservation of fertility for cancer patients with ovarian freezing and transplantation and thereby figured out how to extend the reproductive biological clock of women. He has helped pioneer minimal ovarian stimulation to reduce IVF Costs. He has even recently answered the age-old question of why the dinosaurs went extinct by extending his research on male infertility and the Y chromosome, discovering that the change in earth temperature 65,000,000 years ago led to the birth of a skewed male/female sex ratio.

Dr. Silber has treated many thousands of infertile couples who travel to St. Louis daily from all over the world. His patients come from every state in the U.S.A., all over Europe, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. His patients include doctors, teachers, rock stars, secretaries, politicians, astronauts, movie stars, scientists, truck drivers, lawyers, migrant fruit pickers, CEO’s, princes and kings.

My husband and I could not be happier with the level of care and services we received from Infertility Center of St Louis and Dr Sherman Silber were truly the best you can get anywhere. Well worth traveling to see them if need be. I had to have a tubaligation reversed, very challenging procedure, but we now have a 7 year old daughter and would have more except I ran out of eggs I naturally produced after having our daughter at 38, plus she is such a handful we took it as a sign that this is all we can handle. ha ha... but if we had wanted to pursue another we could have, my tubes were still open last time they were checked a 5 yrs post op, pretty impressive and not the norm, usually your lucky to get 6 months to a year to conceive after they are repaired. We will always recommend Dr Silber and the staff at Infertility Center St Louis, they have the right attitudes and skills to bring a baby into the world! FYI- relaxing and putting it out of your mind, believing you will have a baby REALLY DOES HELP!!!!!!!

Dr Silber made my dreams of becoming a mother come true. After 7 years of tests and failed procedures by other doctors and specialists, I finally found Dr. Silber. He was very dedicated to helping us start our family through IVF. I would recommend him to anyone who've had problems conceiving. Some doctors will turn away difficult cases in order to keep their stats high, but not Dr Silber. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter last year thanks to him, and are making plans for our second child with the help of the Infertility Center of St. Louis and Dr Silber. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

A medical first....In 1988 our daughter Hannah was born. Dr. Silber along with a team in Orange County California performed the GIFT procedure; which enabled my husband and I to conceive. We truly felt blessed then and continue to feel blessed as Hannah and Andy have given us our first grandson, Levi; now 5 months old. Dr. Silber performed ICSI on us in 1997 .From our frozen embryos we became proud parents of our second daughter, Jesse. She was born in Nov. of 1997. Dr. Silber is a pioneer in the field of infertility and continues his work blessing families.

My husband and I met Dr. Silber in 1987. We had tried to conceive 3 years prior with no results. At the time, there was at least a year waiting list to get an appointment. During our wait we continued to see a different doctor and continued with artificial insemination which never worked but at least we felt we were "doing something". When we finally received a call that we had an appointment we were so excited. Dr Silber performed a procedure called GIFT,( which I don't think they do anymore), in July 1988. It was successful and in March 1989 we had twins! They are now 24 years old and are both college graduates and healthy. Even though the procedure seems like a long time ago, I still get emotional when I hear Dr. Silber on the radio or read about a new procedure he is now performing. I don't remember the nurses names but I do remember everyone we worked with being very compassionate. We were very fortunate we found Dr. Silber and I don't think we would have had success with any other doctor. My final message is, DON'T STOP TRYING. I know sometimes its hard to keep going but there is no one better than Dr. Silber. He is the best!!

Our experience with Dr. Silber started in November of 2007 when we booked my husband's vasectomy reversal. The procedure was performed in April of 2008. The time in between our booking and the surgery was filled with uncertainty and so many questions. It was the response to all those questions that cemented our decision to work with the Infertility Center of St. Louis. I never waited more than 30 minutes for a return call, and there were many. Each question was answered with compassion and professionalism from every contact person with whom we spoke. The day of our consultation came, and we were able to watch videos, ask even more questions, and finally, meet with Dr. Silber. We appreciated his kindness, candor, and commitment to us as his patients. After the procedure we were told of all that happened, shown photos of the repairs, and given excellent insight about what was to come next. For the following months, we waited and waited for positive results. When they didn't come, we were reassured with letters and follow-ups from the staff. Finally, 16 months after the surgery, we conceived our daughter. The celebration wasn't limited to our family and friends: someone in St. Louis celebrated with us. I think the most important part of our experience with Dr. Silber, aside from the success, is that he and his staff have never made us feel like a statistic. His care and concern still ring true with us nearly 5 years later.

I traveled from New Jersey to St. Louis back in 1982 to have a vasectomy reversal by Dr. Silber. My wife gave birth to a healthy child in May 1983. I am happy to say that we had 2 more healthy children afterwards. The doctor and his staff were very professional.
