Biography

Dr. Bruce Shapiro is specialty board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is sub-specialty board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. He founded The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, the city’s first infertility practice, which is renowned for research that has advanced the science and practice of Reproductive Endocrinology.

Dr. Shapiro’s research background and a long-standing interest in making IVF safer and more effective have led to many innovations.   He was one of the first physicians to perform and report on blastocyst transfer in the United States.  Blastocyst transfer is a procedure allowing the transfer of fewer embryos into the uterus while maintaining high pregnancy rates and reducing the risk of high order multiple pregnancy (triplets and greater).  He received a research award for this work.  He was also instrumental in developing techniques for post thaw extended culture (PTEC) following fertilized oocyte cryopreservation demonstrating the importance of embryo-endometrial synchrony for implantation, for which he received another research award.  Dr. Shapiro was among the first in the world to standardize the use of GnRH agonist triggers in high responders undergoing ovarian stimulation, a practice that virtually eliminates ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).  Dr. Shapiro’s innovations also include the combination of GnRH agonist with low-dose hCG to realize the benefits of each trigger agent. Dr. Shapiro’s work has allowed patients who have had previous failures and/or OHSS in IVF to change the way their IVF cycles are performed so that their chance of success is greatly improved while their risk of complications from OHSS and high order multiple pregnancy are significantly reduced. His current research focuses on maximizing embryo implantation through careful attention to both embryo development and the receptivity of the endometrium. This research has led to some of the highest reported success rates in the United States. 

In addition to his work at The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Shapiro remains on the faculty as Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Nevada School of Medicine, where he teaches medical students and residents.
