Dr. Samuel Pang
LGBT fertility specialist providing reciprocal IVF for lesbian couples, IVF using donor eggs and surrogacy for gay men and fertility preservation for transgender men and women.
Dr. Pang, a Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialist, has been helping lesbian couples become parents through assisted reproductive technology (ART) since 1993. Typically lesbian couples, without infertility issues, conceive using donor sperm and intrauterine insemination (IUI). More recently, however, Dr. Pang has pioneered a Reciprocal IVF treatment in which one female partner provides the eggs (fertilized using donor sperm) and the other female partner goes through embryo transfer, carries the pregnancy and gives birth. While a more costly process, many lesbian couples choose this treatment model because it enables both partners to play a physical role in the conception of their babies.
In 1998, Samuel Pang, MD and the Reproductive Science Center became the first in New England to facilitate IVF using donor eggs and gestational surrogacy for gay male couples. Since then, Dr. Pang has assisted male couples from the United States, Europe and South America become parents. RSC New England's live birth rate for gay male couples is 100%.
More recently, Dr. Pang and RSC New England have provided fertility preservation services for a number of transgender individuals.
Dr. Pang is a highly sought after expert and has presented seminars nationally regarding assisted reproductive options for LGBT men and women including presentations to the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association and Boston's Fenway Health clinical staff and patients.
