Meet Dr. Samir BabayevReproductive Endocrinology & Infertility Specialist
Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility specialist Samir Babayev, M.D., has dedicated his career to helping women and couples become parents.
Trained and experienced in all aspects of reproductive medicine, Dr. Babayev specializes in fertility preservation through oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing) and embryo cryopreservation (embryo freezing) at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
His patients include people who want children later in life, as well as cancer patients who consult with him before undergoing treatment that may affect their fertility. Dr. Babayev also has expertise in fertility treatment for older women and those with diminished ovarian reserve.
UT Southwestern’s fertility program provides every available option to help women and couples achieve their fertility goals, but Dr. Babayev and his colleagues offer special expertise in a lesser-known technique called minimal stimulation in vitro fertilization (IVF) or mini IVF.
“Minimal stimulation IVF is less expensive than traditional IVF, it requires fewer medications and less time, and it has impressive outcomes,” Dr. Babayev says. “At UT Southwestern, we’re experts in this area, and we offer a more personalized approach than other clinics.”
Communication and Compassion
Dr. Babayev places a high priority on making his patients feel comfortable. He spends an hour and a half with all new patients to complete a thorough evaluation, as well as to get to know patients individually and understand their hopes and goals. This initial assessment helps him work with patients to determine next steps.
“My patients can expect competence, communication, and compassion from me,” he says. “I do everything I can to make this experience as pleasant and rewarding as it can be.”
