Dr. Fritz’s extensive research supports important advancements in the field of infertility care.

  • Male factor infertility. Dr. Fritz received the ASRM Prize Paper in 2017 for his evaluation of a newly discovered protein in seminal fluid that likely plays a role in sperm motility. Although frequently overlooked, male factor infertility accounts for approximately one-third of infertility cases. This research could lead to additional treatment options for hopeful parents facing male factor infertility.
  • Reproductive aging. An additional area of research that Dr. Fritz is very passionate about is educating reproductive-aged women on reproductive aging and the availability of egg freezing. He has conducted research alongside the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists evaluating methods to improve education on these important topics.

He has also written and lectured extensively on reproductive aging and egg freezing, and is a strong proponent of this technology. In his own words, “Given the recent trends in delayed childbearing in the United States, many more women are now unfortunately facing involuntary childlessness. Empowering women with information relating to reproductive aging/fertility decline with aging, and the availability of elective egg freezing, is a crucial component of a woman’s reproductive autonomy.”

We are thrilled to have Dr. Fritz’s wisdom, experience and compassion at our New York fertility center. Contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Fritz.
