281-357-1881

Dr. Skorupski completed his undergraduate degree in chemistry at Binghamton University in New York prior to attending medical school at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. He returned to New York to complete his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at St. Luke’s- Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan. He then attended Baylor College of Medicine to complete his clinical genetics training, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Michigan. Dr. Skorupski’s clinical interests include the psychological impact of infertility treatments, fertility preservation in cancer patients and rare genetic syndromes.

Dr. Skorupski brings a unique perspective to reproductive medicine by combining his knowledge of clinical genetics with his insight into the treatment of couples with fertility challenges. Dr. Skorupski is board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility in addition to obstetrics and gynecology. He has authored numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and has presented his work nationally. Dr. Skorupski is an active fellow in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
