Dr. Cori Tanrikut joins SGF as a full-time reproductive urologist and male fertility specialist and will be bringing expanded in-house male fertility services to the Baltimore Metro Region.
“I am thrilled to join Shady Grove Fertility and look forward to making male infertility services more accessible for the surrounding Baltimore metro community. Our expanded services allow us to treat both partners simultaneously, which enhances the patient experience by helping to make the fertility journey as comprehensive and individualized as possible,” says Dr. Tanrikut.
With male factor infertility accounting for 40 to 50 percent of all infertility cases, there has become an increasing demand for expanded male fertility services. The addition of an in-house board certified reproductive urologist in SGF’s Baltimore metro region will provide patients in that region with easier, more convenient access to a suite of male infertility—services that previously required a referral to a urologist outside of the practice. Dr. Tanrikut’s services include no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy, male infertility evaluations, and other surgical procedures.
