About Dr. Brandeis

Dr. Vincent T. Brandeis, M.D., FACOG, has 30 years experience in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). He is board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Since 1986, Dr. Brandeis has enabled thousands of infertile couples to become parents.

Dr. Brandeis trained in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Tulane University's Charity Hospital in New Orleans and at Harbor General Hospital in Baltimore, a teaching affiliate of the University of Maryland. He then went on to complete a 2-year fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Rutgers Medical School in New Brunswick, N.J., where, in 1984, he was on the staff of the first IVF program established in New Jersey, one of the earliest ART programs in the USA. He spent another year at Rutgers as an Assistant Professor In Obstetrics and Gynecology, while continuing to work with the REI program. In 1986, he established the first full-service private fertility practice in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Although it remains a solo practice, it has since expanded to Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.

Dr. Brandeis has lectured and published articles on infertility, hirsutism, ovulation dysfunction, intra-uterine insemination (IUI), sperm antibodies, various methods of sperm preparation for IUI, and the sperm penetration assay. In addition, he frequently lectures to community groups on fertility and women’s health concerns.

He served as principal project consultant for the establishment of a regional fertility center in eastern Italy and for a proposed hospital-based Institute of Reproductive Medicine in Nigeria, for both of which he made onsite visits.

    Dr Brandeis and his staff have traveled to observe the ART programs at:

  1. The Jones Institute in Norfolk, Virginia, the first IVF program in the United States.
  2. Bourn Hall in Cambridge, England, where the first IVF baby was born.
  3. The Free University of Brussels hospital in Belgium, at the invitation of Dr. Andre Steirteghem, “father” of the technique of Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).
  4. Fecunditas, the leading ART program in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for a reciprocal staff-training program.
  5. Various centers in Israel.
  6. The Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, to study a simplified method for determining the acrosome status of sperm with Dr. D. Y. Liu, the researcher who developed the test. This assay was later used by Dr. Brandeis in a study on the “Effects of Four Methods of Sperm Preparation on the Motile Concentration, Morphology, and Acrosome Status of Recovered Sperm from Normal Semen Samples,” published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics in 1993, and presented at the 8th Congress of the Argentine Fertility Society in Buenos Aires later that year.

Dr. Brandeis has also worked with various rabbis in the metropolitan area as a consultant on the practical applications of Jewish halachic law to fertility treatment procedures.
