Marc Goldstein, MD, has been named the Matthew P. Hardy Distinguished Professor of Reproductive Medicine and Urology at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Dr. Goldstein is surgeon-in-chief of male reproductive medicine and surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he directs the Men’s Service Center of the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine and Microsurgery of the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and the Department of Urology.

He is also senior scientist with the Population Council’s Center for Biomedical Research, located on the campus of The Rockefeller University.

“A leader in his field, Dr. Goldstein has developed or refined nearly every microsurgical procedure currently used for treating male infertility,” said Peter Schlegel, MD, chairman of the department of urology at Cornell. “As one example, his microsurgical vasectomy reversal has been shown to be highly effective, resulting in more pregnancies than any other technique.”

Endowed by an anonymous donor, the named professorship honors the late Matthew P. Hardy, PhD, who was adjunct professor of reproductive biology in urology at Weill Cornell Medical College and senior scientist at the Population Council.
