Michael Glassner, MD
“I strongly believe that every patient should feel as if they are the only – and most important – patient in our practice. I treat every patient as if they are my daughter, sister, or friend. I can relate to the psychological and emotional journey of infertility and I am here to support my patients every way I can.”
Meet Dr. Michael Glassner
As the Founding Partner and Medical Director at Main Line Fertility, Dr. Michael Glassner’s personal philosophy is to always provide the most caring, personalized treatment for all patients. With over 25 years of experience in the industry, Dr. Glassner is both a scientist and clinician and has treated many patients from across the globe.
An award-winning physician and a true pioneer in his field, Dr. Glassner’s prolific research has helped lead to breakthroughs in the treatment of infertility. Most notably, he has been involved with major achievements including the first pregnancy and live birth in the world to use early screen with Next Generation Sequencing. As a top physician, he has been featured on many national news programs and is often called upon to comment as a valued and respected source in the field.
Dr. Glassner considers himself literally “born” into the field, as he was a product of a successful fertility treatment in the late 1950s, when his own parents suffered through infertility for five years before he was born. In recent years, he also has the unique experience of being a doctor and patient simultaneously.
“In my own life, my wife and I have suffered through six miscarriages and five rounds of IVF treatment to complete our family. So, I understand the heartache of loss, as well as the frustration of fertility treatments and the IVF cycles. This personal situation also gave me insight into how difficult it is to be the partner to someone dealing with infertility. It’s such a helpless feeling when you can’t fix the problem or help your partner.”
