Karen Baker, MD

Male Fertility Specialist
(919) 572-4673


Couples struggling to get pregnant can feel stressed and isolated and the choices they face can seem overwhelming. That is why it is essential to me that couples have a thorough understanding of the options available to optimize the man's fertility before embarking upon a reproductive plan. Each couple is unique and I work hand-in-hand with our female reproductive specialists to help couples realize their goals. I think it is important to honor the couple's decision and it has been my privilege to help thousands of couples on their journey to grow their families. I have over two decades of experience in microsurgery and I use surgical, medical and lifestyle approaches in my practice.
