Steven Palter, M.D.

Founder and Medical Director

I am the Founder and Medical and Scientific Director of Gold Coast IVF in Woodbury, NY. I have dedicated my career to making the dreams of infertile couples come true and I am internationally recognized as a leader in the field of fertility treatment. I have treated patients from all over the world, and my work is frequently featured in the press, including Newsday, CBS News, and the New York Times. The leading news program 20/20 featured my work in a special segment, as did National Geographic.

As a member of the Yale faculty, I was Clinical Chief of Reproductive Endocrinology and the Founder and Director of many additional programs including the Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship and the Yale Oncofertility Program. I have served as the first-ever Editor for Video and New Media for the leading fertility journal, Fertility and Sterility of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, ASRM. Also, I have served on the ASRM Board of Directors, the Society of Reproductive Endocrinology, and am a recent past President of the Society for Reproductive Surgery.

I have also served on the Board of Directors of the leading minimally invasive surgery society in the world, the AAGL. I also founded the International Center of Excellence Program in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery. I have been honored to share my passion for technological innovations by speaking as Plenary and Keynote Speaker for both ASRM and AAGL more than any other physician, ever.

I am also well known for cutting-edge technological developments and collaborations with innovators from outside medicine. I performed the world’s first HD and 4K surgeries, and have developed award-winning techniques to visualize disease and embryo details invisible to the naked eye. I have been awarded international prizes for my research over six times. The leading medical organizations have sought me out as an invited Professor and lecturer, including Yale University, the Cleveland Clinic, and more than 20 other universities and national fertility/surgical societies.

My clinical practice and research focus on infertility and advanced endoscopy, and I serve as reviewer for many journals. I am the recipient of numerous research grants from the NIH and elsewhere, taught over 100 invited lectureships/courses, have over 80 publications and abstracts, mentored trainees from over a dozen nations, and been invited to perform laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery around the world. I have treated patients from every continent and my success rates are among the top, anywhere.

My promise to every patient: that I will stick with you until together we find answers. I am rock solid committed to doing everything I can for every person who entrusts their care to me. I look forward to meeting with you and joining you on your journey to parenthood!
