Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Mayo Clinic's PCOS team includes specialists trained in female reproductive medicine (gynecologists), hormone disorders (endocrinologists) and infertility (reproductive endocrinologists).

Specialists in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility are frequently involved in care. Every staff physician in that division is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology as well as reproductive endocrinology and infertility. These reproductive and infertility specialists work frequently with other specialists in endocrinology, metabolism and nutrition.

Mayo Clinic also has dietitians and diabetes educators to help with weight loss or diabetes prevention.

Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — care is discussed among the team, appointments are scheduled in coordination, and highly specialized PCOS experts are all working together to determine what's best for you.
