Katie Visco

Laurence A. Jacobs, M.D. of Fertility Centers of Illinois introduces a technique that she's used in her practice to help women with a common issue.

Jacobs discusses this fertility treatment and her success with endometrial scratching throughout the years, especially with patients who've struggled with IVF.
