Dr. Robert Skaf, MD
Dr. Skaf founded South Jersey Fertility Center in 1989. After completing his Reproductive Endocrine training in 1981, he was appointed Division Head at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Camden, NJ. During those 8 years (1981-1989) he was in charge of the medical students' curriculum and was instrumental in training many of the OB/GYN physicians in the area. In 1983, Dr. Skaf was the first physician in the state to perform CO2 laser laparoscopy for the treatment of endometriosis and pelvic adhesions. During his tenure, he became Associate Professor. Currently he is a Clinical Associate Professor at the Robert Wood Johnson and Jefferson Medical Schools. In 1989, Dr. Skaf established the first outpatient In-Vitro Fertilization Program in the area. He is currently the Chief of the Reproductive Endocrinology section at Virtua West Jersey Hospital. He was the recipient of the Philip J. Williams Junior Fellow Prize Paper on his work in Androgenic Response to Menotropin Therapy and FSH Bioassay. He has given many presentations in the field of Laser and Operative Laparoscopy in addition to Assisted Reproductive Technologies both nationally and internationally. His work overseas resulted in the birth of the first GIFT baby in Syria. As a clinical investigator he has published articles in major journals and presented his work at scientific meetings. His publications in the area of reproductive endocrinology describe original scientific findings on such topics as ovarian follicular biology and recurrent pregnancy loss. At the 1997 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) a presentation on endometrial pathology for which he collaborated won the award for the most outstanding poster presentation. At the 1998 ASRM meeting he presented important advances in the practice of IVF which were made at South Jersey Fertility Center and are now being applied to the care and management of the Center's patients. He presented our Center's progress in IVF techniques to fellow gynecologist at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists – District III annual meeting in 2004.
