About Dr. Servy, infertility specialist
A native of France, Dr. Edouard J. Servy has been helping Georgians struggling with infertility become parents for 30 years, working in his Augusta clinic, the Servy Fertility Institute. He is a true pioneer of fertility medicine and continues to stay on the cutting edge of the latest advances in assisted reproductive technologies and clinical best practices. He is also a well-respected expert in hysteroscopic and laparoscopic surgery.
Dr. Servy’s firsts in fertility medicine
- The first intrauterine insemination (IUI) in the United States.
- The first in vitro fertilization (IVF) embryo transfer at blastocyst stage in the U.S.
- The first live birth in the world after cryopreservation at the blastocyst stage following intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Dr. Servy attended medical school in Bordeaux, specializing in internal medicine with a focus on endocrinology and metabolic disease. As a recipient of the highly prized Irene Bernard grant, Dr. Servy came to Augusta, Georgia, in 1969 for a research fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at the Medical College of Georgia, under endocrinology pioneers Dr. Robert B. Greenblatt and Dr. Virendra Mahesh. After completing a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Medical College of Georgia, he established his private practice in Augusta.
Developing low-cost fertility treatment
While proud of his many accomplishments and his international reputation in fertility medicine, Dr. Servy has been a tireless champion of bringing down the cost of fertility treatment. Being involved in the great steps fertility medicine was making, he found it very frustrating that the promise it held for so many was just not in their reach financially.
Dr. Servy’s focus on affordable fertility treatment lead him to develop a low-cost program for IVF, the most effective – and most expensive – treatment in fertility medicine. This more affordable and highly effective care has helped many people become parents who otherwise couldn’t have afforded it by eliminating hidden costs and unnecessary testing, and only recommending IVF if less expensive fertility treatment options aren’t an option or haven’t worked.
