Dr. Khurgin has published on a variety of urological topics in peer-reviewed journals and textbook chapters. He has presented at national urological meetings and continues to be active in urological research. He also serves as a reviewer for several urological journals. He is a member of multiple urological and medical societies, including the American Urological Association, American College of Osteopathic Surgeons and American Medical Association.
Dr. Khurgin has a special interest in male fertility. He strongly believes that a thorough evaluation of the male is essential to couples having difficulty conceiving. Male fertility potential is often considered a secondary issue or even overlooked completely, but appropriate assessment often uncovers underlying problems requiring attention, such as hormonal, genetic, metabolic and general health concerns.
Dr. Khurgin’s work as part of our team is meant to expedite the evaluation of the male partners who seek care for infertility at GENESIS. His fluency in both Russian and Hebrew facilitates easily communication with the diverse population that we serve.
