DENVER, Co. – Shady Grove Fertility, a national leader in fertility and family-building care, adds Ivy L. Lersten, M.D., reproductive endocrinologist (REI), to the Colorado physician team. Dr. Lersten earned her medical degree at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, graduating in the research distinction track. She then completed her residency in OB/GYN followed by a fellowship in REI, both at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

“Building meaningful connections with my patients is one of the best parts of my job, and I am thrilled to be joining a team that puts those relationships at the forefront,” shares Dr. Lersten. “Our amazing care team of doctors, nurses, care coordinators, medical assistants, embryologists, front desk staff (and more) take a patient-centered approach while striving to provide the highest quality, evidence-based care through the research we conduct.”

As an avid researcher, Dr. Lersten received ASRM’s Fertility Preservation Special Interest Group Prize Paper Award for her work on fertility preservation. She is interested in ovarian biology and has studied ways to optimize ovarian tissue cryopreservation in fellowship.
