Stanton Honig, MD
Research & Publications
Dr. Stanton Honig is a nationally known expert on male fertility, sexual medicine and surgery. In his large clinical urology practice, he focuses on providing compassionate, personalized care to men struggling with infertility, sexual problems, in addition to general urology. This involves working with couples that are having trouble conceiving because of male reproductive issues, such as no sperm in the ejaculate, low sperm counts, or blockage of the vas deferens, the tiny tubes that deliver sperm.
Dr. Honig has been at the forefront of many groundbreaking techniques in urology, including sperm retrieval techniques, medical and surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction, treatment of peyronie’s disease (curvature of the penis) and unique treatments for low testosterone, vasectomy and testis implants.
To provide coordinated care for fertility patients, he works closely with reproductive endocrinologists, doctors who specialize in female fertility issues. “It’s so rewarding to help couples achieve pregnancy, and to improve intimacy in couples,” Dr. Honig says. He often tells patients, “as long as we can find sperm, we can help you to start a family. In cases of erectile dysfunction, we can help everyone! It’s just a matter of what treatment you would like to choose.”
Dr. Honig has more than two decades of experience in microsurgery and is the most experienced fellowship-trained urologist in microsurgery, male reproduction and sexual medicine in Connecticut. He is the past president of the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction (SSMR), a sub society of the American Urological Society. He is currently on the American Urology Association’s (AUA) Vasectomy Guidelines Committee, Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) Male Infertility Working Group and the Male Reproductive Health Alliance.
Dr. Honig regularly presents at the AUA’s national meetings on the latest developments in his field, and has served as a reviewer on the editorial board of many peer-reviewed academic journals. He speaks widely, lecturing at conferences, regionally, nationally and internationally. He works to promote public awareness of men’s health issues, specifically addressing issues related to preservation of fertility for cancer patients, testis self-examination, and the prevention of male reproductive health issues and has spoken at the CDC on these topics.
