Charles M. March, MD, FACOG
Meet Dr. March
Since completing my fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at USC, my practice has been divided between teaching at USC (“full-time” until 2003 and voluntary since), private practice and research. The research has included the investigation of new drugs, one of which is now used to treat certain types of pituitary tumors, another which is used to treat endometriosis, fibroid tumors and to prepare the ovaries for stimulation used in IVF and another to treat menopausal symptoms. Additionally, my colleagues and I introduced ovarian ultrasound in the early eighties to make treatment with injectable fertility drugs safer and more effective. We also introduced a unique method of using a combination of oral and injectable fertility drugs which reduced the cost of therapy and reduced the frequency of multiple pregnancies.
More recently, my clinical practice has focused on intrauterine surgery to treat intrauterine scarring (Asherman’s Syndrome) which can develop after a D & C, after fibroid surgery and after a cesarean section as well as conditions which can cause repeated miscarriages and premature labor such as congenital abnormalities of the uterus and fibroid tumors. I continue to publish the results of my research work and to present these results at both national and international scientific meetings.
As a decorated Vietnam veteran, I understand and appreciate the sacrifices that our veterans and their families have made and continue to make. In order to demonstrate my appreciation for those efforts, I have never charged our active duty and veteran heroes and their families for the professional component of their care.
