With over two decades of experience, Dr. Schattman is a renowned reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist, a world-class surgeon and one of the leaders in the field of assisted reproductive technologies and fertility preservation. Fertility PreservationWomen facing cancer treatment have an urgent need to preserve their reproductive options. Even women not facing cancer have a need to preserve their fertility due to the natural decline in fertility with advancing age. Dr. Schattman has extensive expertise in caring for patients who are considering preserving or extending their fertility by freezing eggs or embryos. Egg or embryo freezing is an option for women in a wide range of circumstances, including those who may have difficulty getting pregnant after cancer treatment (oncofertility). At our center, we have many years of experience with egg and embryo freezing–in fact, we are one of the pioneering centers in the country – and we can provide these treatment options to patients with little or no delay.Reproductive Surgery Dr. Schattman is a world-class reproductive surgeon, who is a leader in minimally invasive surgery.  One of the first gynecologic surgeons to perform robotic surgery for reversal of tubal ligation and excision of uterine fibroids, Dr. Schattman is particularly experienced in the use of advanced surgical methods to treat common causes of infertility such as blocked fallopian tubes, intrauterine adhesions, endometriosis and ovarian cysts. In addition to treating infertility, Dr. Schattman also uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat gynecologic conditions like abnormal uterine bleeding and uterine malformations. Education and ExperienceDr. Schattman earned a B.S. in 1983 from St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, and his M.D. in 1987 from the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center, in Brooklyn, New York.  He completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The George Washington University Medical Center in 1991 followed by a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Weill Cornell Medical College/NY Presbyterian Hospital that he completed in 1993. Dr. Schattman joined the Cornell faculty in 1993 and is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.Dr. Schattman has received many awards during his career for his achievements clinically as well as for teaching, and is the proud recipient of the APGO National Faculty Award for teaching.  Testament to his clinical acumen, Dr. Schattman served for 5 years (2004-2009) as Chairman of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) Practice Committee, the professional body that produces the guidelines and principles by which its members practice Reproductive Medicine.
