Her methods help patients who had previous difficulty conceiving, even with help from their physician. She has lead several large research studies and contributed to publications in top peer-reviewed fertility journals, including Fertility and Sterility and Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics. Her research interests include embryo culture in the IVF laboratory, comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS), endometrial synchrony, and heritable genetic disorders.
Dr. Hong is one of the few reproductive endocrinologists in the nation who has trained in embryology. She finds this experience is crucial to improving patient care and dedicates a portion of her time to the embryology laboratory.
“Not many people realize that providing the best possible outcome depends on ensuring that the embryo is properly cared for each step of the way,” says Dr. Hong. “Each talented team member, from our embryologists, research coordinators, and patient services team to our financial counselors and nurses, contribute to making RMA one of the best places in the world to come to for reproductive care.”
