Care Philosophy

Infertility is a true life crisis. Fortunately, it is successfully resolved in over 95% of cases: often without medical intervention. My role as an Infertility expert is to make sure that this journey is as safe, short and dignified as possible. Reproductive surgery is any surgery aimed at preserving fertility in face of disease, or to enhance fertility as a complement to other fertility treatments. In either case, reproductive surgery is conservative and minimally invasive: I abstain from surgery as much as possible. However, when surgery is clearly indicated, I offer the most cutting edge minimally invasive techniques.Read more

I recently visited Dr. Gargiulo for fertility treatment. My husband and I had been trying to conceive for a couple of years. We are both 43 years old and after a failed IVF cycle elsewhere, we went to see Dr. Gargioulo. I had a couple of factors working against me. The age factor, a missing fallopian tube which had raptured as a result of an ectopic pregnancy in 2014 and a prior laparoscopic myomectomy that took out 6 large fibroids. Other doctors had encouraged me to consider a donor egg due

Dr. Gargiulo is both brilliant and kind, making a great choice in a surgeon and specialist.

Dr. Gargiulo did my laparoscopy when my gynecologist recommended surgery to remove a growing cyst, suspected of being endometriosis. I never worried that Dr. Gargiulo's surgical removal and ablation of the cyst was going to be impeccable. I was also surprised, upon first visiting his office, to learn that I was a candidate for his recently published single-site procedure, which meant my laparoscopy done with only one incision, through my belly button. I don't have a scar, and healed quickly!

We saw Dr. G after our 3rd miscarriage. We had been trying for a baby for almost 3 years. We only met with him once and he was kind, knowledgeable and empathetic. We came up with a plan and BOOM! I got pregnant and stayed pregnant right away. Our baby turned 6 months old yesterday. We plan on going back to him when we are ready to start trying for number 2! I would recommend him to anyone struggling to conceive or has suffered multiple losses like us. He may just make your dreams come true!!

I recently underwent single-site robotic laparoscopic myomectomy performed by Dr Gargiulo. This technique was pioneered at BWH and published in peer reviewed journals. The standard of care was outstanding at every stage and I recovered surprisingly quickly. I was back on my feet within a week with very little post-operative pain. Dr Garguilo will treat you with both skill and compassion and I would urge anyone who is concerned about fibroids to arrange a consultation at BWH.

Dr. Gargiulo is Amazing!!! I was referred to him and told he was The best of the best. I walked in his office, he was kind, understanding, knowledgeable and caring. He was 100% invested my well being and health By the time I walked out of his office, I had a MRI scheduled, follow up appointments on the books and plan for surgery underway. Dr. G was able to do surgery through my belly button and avoid a large cut across stomach. My first Dr. I saw had told me that was not an option.

I could not have asked for a better Doctor to handle my gigantic fibroid. Dr. Gargiulo Is one of the best Doctors I've dealt with. He was able to remove my gigantic (size of a regular human's head) fibroid through robotic Assisted Laparoscopy myomectomy. He left very tiny scars on my belly and reconstructed my belly button perfectly. I could not be any happier to know this thing is out of me. My belly is so flat now, it's amazing. Dr. Gargiulio thank you!!! thank you!! thank you!!!
in Derry, NH |
Dr. Gargiulo is very informative and answered any questions I had throughout the process. At one point after my surgery I had a question so I called the hospital and they told me I would receive a call back momentarily. Not long after Dr. Gargiulo called me back himself to reassure me that I was ok and that what I was experiencing was 100% normal. He was a very nice Doctor.

Dr. Gargiulo was extremely knowledgeable, kind and professional. I was referred to him over the summer when I was diagnosed with a 12cm fibroid. Dr. Gargiulo walked me through the entire procedure and reassured me that my fertility would remain intact. On the day of my surgery I was completely comfortable with my surgical team, and I will say that my recovery was extremely fast and surprisingly comfortable. Dr. Gargiulo made 4 small incisions, removed the fibroid, and I was on my way to recovery
in Somerville, MA |
When I found out that I had a large fibroid about the size of a softball in my uterus, and the recommendation was to have it removed, I did a lot of research to find out who was the top surgeon in the area specializing in fertility & fibroid removal; all fingers pointed to Dr. Antonio Gargiulo, a specialist in gynecological surgery who works at the Brigham and Women?s Hospital, which is Ranked #2 in the nation for Gynecology. I knew I would be in excellent hands, and I couldn?t be more pleased.
in Exeter, NH |
Dr. Gargiulo and his staff at the Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery in Stratham, NH are at the top of their class. This is by far the nicest group of healthcare professionals I have ever interacted with and would highly recommend. I opted to have a myomectomy for the removal of uterine fibroids at age 50. I am so pleased with the results and it has only been 4 weeks since surgery. Felt fully recovered after 2 weeks and very, very happy that I opted for this surgery.

I was referred to Dr. Gargiulo by children's hospital. I had recurring uterine fibroids that the children's doctor no longer felt confident in removing without comprising the integrity of my uterus. Dr. Gargiulo felt confident in helping me while also saving my uterus and he did. He saved my uterus and my future of having children. He has a wonderful bed-side manner and always made me feel confident and positive. I will be forever gratefull for this doctor.
