Addition of Dr. Pagani Allows Vios Fertility Institute Chicago to Treat Infertility in Both Women and Men Onsite
CHICAGO, IL. (March 2, 2018) – Since opening its doors to parents-to-be two years ago, Vios Fertility Institute Chicago has provided women with compassionate care to treat the leading causes of female infertility. With the addition of urologist Dr. Rodrigo Pagani, Vios is now able to help men become the fathers they want to be through the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of male fertility issues onsite.
“In up to 40 percent of infertility cases, the problem is with the man, but it’s often addressed after the woman is evaluated first,” said Angeline N. Beltsos, MD, CEO and medical director of Vios. “By adding Dr. Pagani to our team, we can now provide care to both partners from the start at a convenient, single location. Having him with us onsite allows for close communication and collaboration with our reproductive endocrinologists to create a treatment plan for couples that get them on the road to parenthood sooner.”
Dr. Pagani possesses 20 years of experience in the field of urology. He specializes in male infertility, including evaluation and treatment, genetic causes of infertility, testosterone replacement, and microsurgical procedures such as vasectomy reversal, varicocelectomy and testicular sperm retrieval. Through his role at Vios, he’s expanding on the clinic’s ability to perform a variety of cutting-edge services from hormonal testing and testicular ultrasounds to sperm quality tests and sperm cryopreservation.
After receiving his medical degree from State University of Londrina in his native Brazil, Dr. Pagani completed his residency in urology at Evangelic Hospital of Londrina and his fellowship in male reproductive medicine and surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urology at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine – a role he will continue while at Vios.
Dr. Pagani is a member of the American Urological Association, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine and the Chicago Urology Society. He has received awards for his work from the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction and the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology.
