We think about people who have a possible reproductive failure and we think about their future and their lives. We don't let their problems linger; it's our job to get to the root of the cause as soon as possible.

IVF Michigan: Rochester Hills & Flint and Hurley Medical Center have had a long-standing and exciting partnership when it comes to conducting research. Dr. Mostafa I. Abuzeid, MD, FACOG, FRCOG is currently a working professor and researcher at Michigan State University and oversees the IVF Michigan Division 1 practice in Rochester Hills and Flint Michigan.

Known for his research in obstetrics and gynecology in the field of reproductive medicine, Dr. Abuzeid and a few of his student residents at Hurley Medical Center joined together in order to publish three case studies regarding uterine anomalies and reproductive and uterine health in general.

Two papers were based on the topic of uterine anomalies, such as young women having two uteri or two vaginas, and women who had undiagnosed uterine abnormalities but didn't realize there was an issue until they began trying to conceive. The last study focused strictly on reproductive and uterine health.

All three studies were published to esteemed peer reviewed journals (Herlyn–Werner–Wunderlich Syndrome: Presentation and Surgical Management Options for Five Cases, Journal of Gynecological Surgery, Cumulative live birth rate and assisted reproduction: impact of female age and transfer day, Facts Views Vis Obgyn, Uterine Didelphys, Obstructed Hemivagina, and Ipsilateral Renal Agenesis: Presentation and Management, The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology). In addition, each case found in the study was referred to Dr. Abuzeid at IVF Michigan Rochester Hills & Flint from local OB/GYN offices. Hurley Medical Center is a modern, state of the art facility that also provides maternal and fetal care.

The reproductive and uterine health topics discussed in the three medical studies are currently hot button issues in the OB/GYN and reproductive health fields. In the beginning of March, a blog post on Hurley Medical Center website mentioned the publications.

Dr. Abuzeid believes that uterine anomalies are becoming more common in society for a number of different reasons, including diet, environmental factors and even pollutants that women are exposed to in their daily lives. However, the root cause still remains unknown, which is why IVF Michigan Rochester Hills & Flint and Hurley Medical Center, as well as Dr. Abuzeid and his colleagues and students have been committed to researching uterine anomalies for over a decade now.

"We think about people who have a possible reproductive failure and we think about their future and their lives. We don't let their problems linger; it's our job to get to the root of the cause as soon as possible. Infertility experts need to treat patients for whatever the patient needs at the time regarding their reproductive health," said Dr. Abuzeid.
