Wright State Physicians Fertility Program


From the Director

Steven R. Lindheim, M.D.I am delighted to introduce myself to the community of Dayton. My name is Dr. Steven Lindheim, and I am privileged to be the program director of the Wright State Physicians Fertility Program. I am honored to be directing this program for treating patients with infertility, endocrine and gynecologic disorders.

Our program provides a full spectrum of services for diagnostic testing and treatment options including ovulation induction, in-vitro fertilization, assisted hatching, blastocyst culture, vitrification and preimplantation genetic diagnosis.

Our vision is to create an educational program with the utmost of personalized care in a warm and supportive setting to guide infertile couples through the journey of infertility treatment. We know this process can be overwhelming, frustrating and challenging. We have selected a professional team that is committed to providing you care in a supportive and compassionate environment and are passionate about providing a “personal approach” to couples seeking gynecologic and reproductive care.

I am extremely proud to be a part of Wright State Physicians. It is a special place where research and teaching come together to create an atmosphere where “patient-centric” infertility care is given in a warm and individualized environment. I look forward to meeting you and becoming an integral part of your reproductive needs!

Warmly,
Steven R. Lindheim, M.D., MMM


Welcome to the website for the Wright State Physicians Obstetrics & Gynecology Fertility Program where we provide state-of-the-art infertility care for the people of the Greater Miami Valley and beyond.

Our program draws from the most up-to-date research to specialize in all aspects of infertility treatment, including ovulation induction, insemination of sperm, in-vitro fertilization (IVF), egg donation and surrogacy. Our andrology laboratory specializes in sperm washes and semen analyses. We provide IVF laboratory procedures including intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), assisted hatching, PGD/PGS (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and screening), blastocyst culture and cryopreservation of sperm, eggs and embryos.

We hope that you find this website informative about our IVF program and infertility treatment options. Under the Advanced Reproductive Services link you may view more information about the many infertility therapies we offer. We have particular expertise in IVF, egg donation and surrogacy.

Most of our patients seek care with us because of a recommendation from other patients we have seen. We pride ourselves on making the experience a comfortable one. While we cannot help all couples get pregnant, we certainly make every effort to have excellent success rates. We depend on you to keep us busy by seeking out our services and referring others to us so that we may continue doing what we love. We cannot thank our patients enough for all the kind words they say about us and for placing their trust in us to provide them with excellent care.

We hope that you find this website helpful, but please remember that we want to meet you in person and assist you with your dreams of having a family.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide you with the most modern infertility medical care in Greater Miami Valley area within a warm and caring environment. Dr. Lindheim specializes in treating patients with individualized medical care. Each patient will have a specific plan developed for her and the emotional support to help make that plan successful. We want you to be successful, but we also want you to be comfortable along the way.

Our Approach

One of the most important things to know about infertility is that you are not alone. Difficulty in conceiving a child affects 10 percent of reproductive-age couples. Here at Wright State Physicians Obstetrics & Gynecology, we truly respect the emotional strain and stress that you are feeling. We are devoted to helping you through all aspects of your care. Our philosophy is to give you a lot of information so that you can better understand your individual situation. Once you gain this knowledge, you can choose the path that feels most comfortable for you to ultimately have a baby. There is often more than one path to success. We let you decide which path to travel with our guidance. With this in mind, the first step is to consider what can go wrong in the human reproductive process. We must then plan a series of tests to determine which of these problems are present in your particular situation. With that information in hand we can at last prepare and complete a logical treatment strategy.
