George M. Grunert, M.D.
Dr. George M. Grunert has over 30 years experience in treating patients with
infertility. Working closely with our Lab Director, he will plan and oversee the entire
fertility process, maintain a relationship with our patient’s OB/GYN, and carry out
Aspire’s mission to create a better fertility experience for each and every patient.
Raised in San Antonio, Dr. Grunert came to Houston to attend Rice University.
He eared his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine, then went on to
complete his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Naval Regional
Medical Center, Oakland, and Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at the
University of California San Francisco.
In 1983, Dr. Grunert returned to Houston to begin private practice and
established the IVF program at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas. This later
became Houston Fertility Specialists. There, Dr. Grunert and his wife Trudye
worked as a team to craft a world-class fertility center. Together, they have done
pioneering work in the fields of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD),
reproductive genetics and embryology.
Dr. Grunert is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as
Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. He is a Captain, Medical Corps, US
Naval Reserve, has written chapters on infertility for medical textbooks, has
given numerous scientific presentations, and has authored or co-authored over
100 articles for publication. He is a Michael E. DeBakey scholar and has earned
numerous other awards.
Dr. Grunert believes in a personal, individualized practice approach to the
evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of infertility. He is proud and honored to
have helped many patients from around the world realize their dream of having
a family. And he considers it a great compliment when one patient refers
another. His opinion is sought by many who have failed treatment elsewhere.
As a long-standing supporter of the LGBT community, Dr. Grunert looks forward
to continuing to help in their efforts to build a family.
