Recognized by her physician peers, Dr. Santoro earns an honored distinction as a Top Doctor for Infertility in the Denver area from 5280 magazine.   

Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) is proud to announce that Nanette Santoro, M.D., who sees patients at SGF Colorado’s Denver location, has been named to 5280 magazine’s 2022 Top Doctors for Infertility list.  

5280 conducts an annual peer-to-peer survey to name the Top Doctors of the Denver area. 343 doctors—in 100 specialties—were nominated by their peers this year. For the past 28 years, 5280 has surveyed doctors and asked them, specialty by specialty, which metro-area physicians they would trust to treat themselves and their families.  

“Helping people expand their families is such a rewarding experience,” shares Dr. Santoro. “I am thankful my patients entrust me with their care, and I am honored to be recognized by my physician peers as a Top Doctor for Infertility in Denver.”  

Get to know Dr. Santoro and SGF Colorado 

Dr. Santoro completed her medical training in the 6-year B.S.-M.D. program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Albany Medical College, followed by a residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City and a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at Massachusetts General Hospital, where she remained on faculty for 3 years prior to joining the faculty at New Jersey Medical School in 1988. 

An accomplished researcher, Dr. Santoro’s current exploration involves treatment of menopausal symptoms in women, understanding the mechanisms by which obesity causes relative infertility in women, participating in clinical trials in reproductive medicine, and research training of OB/GYNs and reproductive endocrinologists.   

Dr. Santoro sees SGF Colorado patients at the Denver location, while also maintaining her position at Colorado University treating women for complex menopause management. Additionally, Dr. Santoro provides training to the University of Colorado Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship program.
