Physician to be honored as 'Legend'
Date:2/27/2012

The Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed) recently announced that it will honor John E. Buster, MD, associate director of the Center for Reproduction and Infertility at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island and Tufts Medical Center, as one of its three "Legends" this May.

"Legends" are selected based upon their internationally recognized contributions to medicine through research and innovative clinical practice. The awards will be presented at LA BioMed's annual dinner.

"This is a wonderful honor for Dr. Buster and the hospital in general," said Constance A. Howes, president and CEO of Women & Infants. "Dr. Buster, like so many of our physicians, work tirelessly every day to help improve the lives of women. Through his innovation in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, hundreds of thousands of couples are parents, and thousands of women have new potential solutions for the symptoms of menopause.

"He has impacted women's health care in unique and valuable ways."

Rich legacy in medicine

Dr. Buster has spent almost his entire career as a physician, spanning four decades, focused on reproductive endocrinology and infertility. His expertise within the field is varied - asssisted reproductive technology procedures, medical treatment and surgical treatment for infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, preimplantation embryology, and female hormone replacement.

It was at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in 1983 that Dr. Buster revolutionized the standards for the treatment of women with infertility and those with genetic conditions they did not want to pass onto their child. He directed the research team that performed the world's first human embryo transfer, which resulted in a live birth in February 1984. As part of the procedure, an embryo was created in one woman using the sperm of an infertile woman's husband through artificial insemina
