Aimee Seungdamrong, M.D. – Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility – Newark, NJ

Please join Dr. Miguel Damien in welcoming Dr. Aimee Seungdamrong to our Damien Fertility Partners team!

Dr. Seungdamrong graduated with a bachelor of arts with honors in chemistry from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. She graduated from the University of Texas – Southwestern Medical School and completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Parkland Memorial Health and Hospital System, both in Dallas, Texas. She completed her subspecialty fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at UMDNJ – New Jersey Medical School in Newark, New Jersey.  She is board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology and reproductiveendocrinology and infertility and a clinical assistant professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark, New Jersey.

Dr. Seungdamrong presented her paper Antithyroid Antibodies, But Not Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, Are Associated With Decreased Pregnancy Rates In Infertile Women at the 2015 American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) conference.  Her paper was one of the few considered for the prize paper selections!  Dr. Seungdamrong’s areas of interest include in-vitro fertilization, fertility preservation, pre-implantation genetic screening, and minimally invasive surgery. She is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the Society of Reproductive Investigation, and the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.  She has published multiple articles and book chapters on infertility, in-vitro fertilization, menopause, and the role of the uterus in the management of infertility.

Dr. Seungdamrong enjoys spending time with her husband and family, reading good books, dancing, traveling, and playing piano.  She is thrilled to join Dr. Damien and Dr. Kort at Damien Fertility Partners.

Dr. Seungdamrong is fluent in multiple languages, including Spanish.
