Dr. Lipshultz, Professor of Urology and Chief of the Division of Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery, Lester and Sue Smith Chair in Reproductive Medicine, joined the Baylor faculty in 1981. He is an internationally acclaimed fertility specialist and a pioneer in the field of urologic microsurgery, specializing in male infertility, erectile dysfunction, microsurgery, genetic causes of infertility, and age-related changes in male hormone levels (androgen replacement).
Dr. Lipshultz earned his medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he also received his residency training in urology and was awarded a research fellowship. He was the first American Urological Association Scholar and completed a fellowship in reproductive medicine at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. In 2005 he was awarded the prestigious Hugh Hampton Young Award at the Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association.
