Henry Ford Center for Reproductive Medicine

The Henry Ford Center for Reproductive Medicine is a full service high tech center offering a variety of diagnostic and treatment options to couples faced with infertility issues.

Center experts recognize that team-work is important on many fronts.

The couple must work together and the reproductive experts must combine their efforts and knowledge to try to help couples have a baby. 

During an initial appointment women may go to Dr. Budrys and men may request a consultation with Dr. Dabaja in Urology.

But at the Henry Ford Center for Reproductive Medicine, the two doctors work as a team. 

Both will meet with the couple to discuss barriers to getting pregnant and steps the couple will need to take in the effort to become parents.

During a monthly conference call the pair discusses different cases and options that may be available to each couple.

The coordination of care is key in helping more couples become parents.

Drs. Budrys and Dabaja also collaborate with other medical experts that may be involved in treating the couple for other medical problems.
