Katherine Rotker, MD, is now part of Yale Urology and joins the Division of Sexual Medicine and Reproductive Health with chief Stanton Honig, MD.
Rotker comes to us from UMass Worcester, where she practiced for five years as an assistant professor of clinical urology with a dual appointment in the department of obstetrics and gynecology. Rotker completed her residency at Brown University where she trained with our own Joseph Renzulli, MD, and met colleagues Joseph Brito, MD, and Timothy Tran, MD. Brown is also where Rotker completed her fellowship training in men’s health and andrology.
Rotker specializes in sexual medicine and male infertility, and is passionate about addressing the stigma often surrounding these conditions. “I think there is something—gender aside—about finding the right doctor, one who knows how to make these difficult topics easier. I think it is about truly listening and normalizing how common these conditions are, and letting patients know they are not alone and that there are options.”
Rotker’s research interests include equity and gender within the field of urology, as well as hypogonadism and advanced semen testing [i.e. DNA fragmentation of sperm].
She will primarily see patients in our eastern region [at L+M Hospital]. “We are so excited to have Dr. Rotker join us,” says Renzulli, Yale Urology's eastern region director. “Her extensive experience in men’s health and infertility will fulfill a huge unmet need in the area.”
Rotker will also have a clinic in collaboration with Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility [REI] at Yale’s West Campus in Orange.
