Has a Home in Chicago
For patients who are trying to get or stay pregnant and who are searching for infertility care in an individualized and honest setting, Reproductive Medicine Institute (RMI) offers the most successful treatment options giving patients a sense of control and hope, while treating each patient like a family member.
With combined expertise that spans more than 20-years, the fertility specialists at Reproductive Medicine Institute (RMI) understand that every patient is different and every story unique - like our own.
Founded in 2008, RMI was the combination of two highly successful independent practices – Drs. Nasir Rana, W. Paul Dmowski, and Elena Trukhacheva of Oak Brook Fertility and Dr. John Rinehart of Rinehart Center for Reproductive Medicine. Fast forward to 2016 and RMI welcomed Dr. Shweta Nayak from the Magee-Women’s hospital in Pittsburgh.
“The doctors, nurses, and staff at Reproductive Medicine Institute always treated us with respect, dignity, and kindness. As a couple, we always felt at home visiting the office. Dr. Rinehart has a very calming way about him and it made a big difference in a time that is full of fear and doubt. He had the perfect balance of kindness, honesty, bedside manner, and clinical expertise that won our trust almost immediately. Whenever we hit a road block he was eager to make changes and try the next thing, so as not to waste time and money. I became pregnant with twins after our first fresh cycle and they are about to turn 3 years old.”
As one of the field’s devoted female reproductive endocrinologists, Elena Trukhacheva, MD, MSCI, demonstrates a deeper understanding of her patients.
Every patient has different needs but the same hopes. We understand at RMI.
If you’re having trouble getting pregnant or staying pregnant, thinking about egg freezing or have general questions about your fertility, you’re not alone. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, nearly 8-million women and men deal with the challenges of an infertility diagnosis every year - about 12% of reproductive age population.
At RMI we offer a wide array of fertility treatment options to help hopeful parents from across all of Chicagoland.
The best option for fertility treatment is not always as invasive as In Vitro Fertilization. Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is one of the first fertility treatments developed and is still highly effective today.
RMI is committed to helping patients get pregnant by ensuring their treatment plan will provide the highest probability of success. For some, that means the use of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF is often used when first-line measures of becoming pregnant have failed or if the reasons surrounding infertility show it would give the best outcome for pregnancy.
In order to improve your chances of a successful implantation during In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and to reduce your risk of problems during pregnancy, RMI offers preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), also known as comprehensive chromosome testing (CCS).
There are many reasons that women may decide to delay starting a family; lifestyle choices, career, no partner, waiting for the “right-time”, or medical diagnoses such as cancer. Unfortunately, the time-line for reproduction in women is limited. Women’s eggs will decline in quantity and quality every year.
RMI is dedicated to helping every patient begin their families regardless of sexual orientation or marital status. If you desire to start a biological family of your own, RMI can help. We can work with you regarding options for surrogacy, egg/embryo donors or sperm donors.
Even with all the advances surrounding infertility treatment, patients are sometimes unable to get pregnant on their own. Egg or embryo donation give patients the ability to conceive using a donor’s egg or embryo.
Inheritable diseases can always cause fear for potential parents, especially if you have a known increased risk of passing on a disease to a child. If you or someone in your family has a known inheritable condition, or if your carrier testing shows that you and your partner are both carriers for the same condition, Preimplantation Genetic Testing for single gene defects can be performed.
