Learn more about our fertility doctor leadership
You should consider fertility doctor leadership when looking for someone to help with infertility. In this blog, I will tell you a little about our roles on the medical staffs at local hospitals and surgery centers. I’ll also discuss te significant consulting we do with both medical and non-medical companies.
Fertility doctor leadership
The TFC physicians have positions of fertility doctor leadership. Dr. Vaughn served as the Chief of Staff at Seton Medical Center. Drs. Vaughn, Silverberg, and Hansard have all served on the Medical Executive Committees and/or Governing Boards at Bailey Square Surgery Center and the North Austin Surgery Center.
Our physicians have also served on numerous committees in the Travis County Medical Society, the Texas Medical Association, and TEXPAC. We have also held leadership positions in the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (SREI), and the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society (PCRS).
Consulting with industry as part of fertility doctor leadership
The field of Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility is a small one, with fewer than 1000 Board Certified physicians in the United States. As such, relationships are very important – not only with our patients, but also with our colleagues and with pharmaceutical and surgical equipment manufacturers. TFC physicians have very close relationships with each of the leading pharmaceutical manufacturers in our field. They recognize our practice for excellence in research, which is why they ask us to participate in every major infertility research study.
We consult regularly with the leading companies in the pharmaceutical, surgical, and biotechnology industries. Our doctors also serve on many Medical Advisory Boards to identify new technologies and treatments. We also consult with several Fortune 500 companies and insurance companies in order to help broaden coverage of infertility for infertility patients at large.
Our recommendations and treatment protocols have actually been demonstrated to reduce the cost of fertility coverage for large employers. One, Southwest Airlines, was so pleased by our efforts that they co-authored and helped us publish a large study. It appeared in Fertility and Sterility. The study showed how covering infertility diagnosis and treatment has helped them save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Other nationwide employers are using the Southwest plan that we developed as a model for their own employee benefit programs. Only TFC can claim these accomplishments.
