Infertility has always been an interest of Dr. Karon’s and she has been devoted to helping her patients with that including meeting them on the weekends for ovulation ultrasounds or inseminations, if necessary. Although she is not involved in in vitro she does pretty much everything leading up to it.
One of the main causes of infertility is endometriosis. Fortunately it can be diagnosed and treated with outpatient laparoscopy, after which most of our patients will conceive within the first 6 months. Laparoscopy if done with the optics of the DaVinci robot, can very precisely visualize and not miss any of the subtle lesions that can effect the function of the tubal fimbia in the way it interacts with the ovulating ovary. In addition to the robotic precision we also have a special Revelex laser that removes the endometriosis and adhesions and fibroids without causing thermal damage to the surrounding healthy tissues.
Since Dr. Karon still practices obstetrics, it gives her great pleasure to then deliver these babies for our infertility couples.
