“RPL is an emotionally and physically draining experience for the patient, and can often leave couples with feelings of despair and depression,” Dr. Kutteh said. “Earlier and more targeted testing helps patients reach the desired goal of a family, alleviating the pain caused by waiting to resolve infertility.”
Melissa Alexander, a patient of Dr. Kutteh’s since 2008, realized success with the new protocol.
“You’re scared, and it’s a day-by-day process because you have never had success,” explained Alexander. “Dr. Kutteh gave me a sense of hope that this pregnancy would come to full term.”
Referred by her obstetrician, Alexander began seeing Dr. Kutteh after two miscarriages. She was diagnosed with a clotting disorder, and treated with heparin, baby aspirin, and other supplements. After a third miscarriage, she continued the treatment. Her daughter was born in 2009, and she is now 22 weeks pregnant with a son.
Many of the causes of RPL are not only discovered with the correct testing, but they are treatable, including Alexander’s clotting disorder.
“When you’re a patient of Dr. Kutteh’s, you know that you are in really good hands. He doesn’t give up on you. He deeply cares for his patients, and wants the best for them,” Alexander said. “When I started this journey more than five years ago, I had lost hope of ever having a child to hold in my arms. Through his knowledge, research, and treatments, Dr. Kutteh helped me achieve one of the greatest gifts I could ever receive, a healthy pregnancy resulting in a beautiful daughter … and now a son on the way.”
Dr. Kutteh’s fertility clinic has worked with more than 3,000 couples. Approximately 70 to 75 percent of his patients will ultimately have a successful pregnancy. His research on recurrent miscarriage has been cited in hundreds of medical journals an
