UPMC Magee Center for Reproduction and Transplantation

If your fertility is at risk, we can help preserve and — when you're ready — restore your ability to have your own child.

The UPMC Magee Center for Reproduction and Transplantation (CRT) is a national leader in cutting-edge fertility treatments.

Comprising the CRT are the UPMC Fertility Preservation Program and the Andrology and Fertility Preservation Laboratory.

We care for men, women, and children as they:

  • Go through cancer treatment.
  • Take autoimmune drugs.
  • Have differences in sexual development (DSD).
  • Deploy for military service.
  • Prepare for age-related infertility.

We care for LGBTQIA+ adults and children as they:

  • Start treatments for gender dysphoria.
  • Get ready for gender reassignment treatment.

“Sometimes people ask, 'How many people in the world does infertility really impact?' For me, the only person that matters is the one that walks in today desperately wanting to have a biological child." — Kyle Orwig, PhD, Director, CRT.

Comprehensive Reproductive Health Care

The CRT's team coordinates with the UPMC Men's Health Center and Center for Fertility and Reproductive Endocrinology to provide care.
