After 25 years of leadership in advanced reproductive services, CT Fertility has relocated to a brand-new fertility center at 100 Technology Drive in Trumbull, CT, and will continue to see patients at 110 E. 55th St. in Manhattan.
CT Fertility’s presence continues to extend far beyond the Eastern United States region with a new office in Barcelona, Spain at Ronda de la Universitat, 9 - 6 08007. Both expansions support CT Fertility’s mission to provide all patients every option for building their family.
“Patients in the U.S. and Europe will now have greater access to the best quality care available to those who need specialized donor and surrogacy options,” said John Gagne, Executive Director, of CT Fertility. “Our unique environment and approach blends highly personalized fertility care with the latest in reproductive technology. By expanding our capacity and presence, we hope to bring new options for starting a family to those who need it.”
To accommodate the growing patient demand, CT Fertility welcomes two leaders in the field of Reproductive Medicine: Dr. Melvin Thornton II and Dr. Joao de Pinho.
Dr. Melvin Thornton II has been appointed Director of the Donor Egg Program. Dr. Thornton brings deep expertise in the areas of IVF and donor egg, fertility preservation and male infertility.

“CT Fertility has reinvigorated a long-standing commitment to the highest level of compassion and care for patients who require assistance from donors in order to start their families,” Dr. Thornton said. “I look forward to building the preeminent center for all infertility patients on the Eastern Seaboard.”
After receiving his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Thornton completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and then his fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Southern California Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.
