Dr. Young has more than 25 years of experience in treating patients with infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, reproductive developmental disorders and problematic menopause. In recent years, most of his practice has centered on infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, and his research has centered on endometrial problems, including implantation failure and endometriosis-related infertility. As the Division Chief of  Duke Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, he promotes a patient-centered, evidence-based, personalized approach to each patient, centered on their individual medical and personal needs.


Clinical Focus and Research

Disorders involving the uterine lining, known as the endometrium. Dr. Young's laboratory is interested in the cellular and molecular basis of disorders that involve estrogen, progesterone, immune function, endometriosis and embryo implantation to include new diagnostic tests and treatments. It is Dr. Young's hope that these and future studies will continue to help women facing recurrent implantation failure, recurrent miscarriage and other reproductive disorders.
