Dr. Zaher Merhi of Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC): Top 2% Scientist in the World!

by Uneeb Khan

The founder and medical director of Rejuvenating Fertility Center (RFC) was just named as one of the world’s top scientists – within the top 2%, as a matter of fact. He was just chosen as an Editorial Board Member for Nutrients and his team at RFC are thrilled for him regarding this major accomplishment.

Dr. Merhi, a board-certified Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialist, founded RFC in order to offer holistic and natural options to patients seeking fertility treatments. He pointed to the fact that even with modern cutting-edge technology, most fertility clinics still only offer traditional (aka conventional) in vitro fertilization (IVF), which involves a barrage of heavy doses of medications administered via injections.

“Many patients who desperately want children hesitate to begin IVF because they’re afraid of needles,” says Dr. Merhi. “These injections are painful and frightening to many people. Also, not everyone can tolerate such strong drugs, so at RFC, we offer a host of other, gentler options.”

He has conducted extensive research in the fertility field for over 20 years, and brings both the latest tech advances and holistic practices to his clinics. “We will do everything from acupuncture for relaxation to the latest in PRP ovarian rejuvenation if it means a patient having a healthy baby,” says Dr. Merhi.

He refers to PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, a recent innovation which allows the body to heal with the power of its own blood. On the heels of this is the even more cutting-edge development, adipose stem cell ovarian rejuvenation, currently only offered at RFC in the Bahamas. “This is the future of fertility medicine,” he says. He and his team are eager for this novel treatment to become available within the US.

RFC is the first non-conventional fertility center in the U.S., and it now has 4 locations in New York and 1 location in Connecticut, plus a huge list of patients from all 50 states and around the world, including Asia and Europe. In fact, about 40% of RFC patients are from outside the NY/CT area, thanks to the clinic’s breakthrough remote treatment options such as Portable IVF, IVF with outside monitoring, and the clinic’s patented At-Home IVF Kit.

Dr. Merhi began his education in 1995 at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, and did his OBGYN Residency at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, from 2003-2007. He was then a Postdoctoral Fellow in Reproductive Endocrinology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Yeshiva University in the Bronx, after which he served as a Clinical Fellow at the same university. Upon completion of this fellowship in 2012 he went on to become an Assistant Professor in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington, Vermont. 

He then conducted extensive research in Reproductive Endocrinology at the NYU School of Medicine and in Biochemistry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, before becoming an Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University in Brooklyn in 2019, where he also served as Director of the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship program.

Founding RFC was his dream, and the continued expansion, with new clinics, has meant a greater capacity to serve not just the Tri-state and New England areas, but the entire world. Patients fly in to RFC clinics from across the globe, though with the clinic’s breakthrough remote telemedicine options, they only have to make a single visit for the procedure (s).

“I am humbled by this latest honor,” says Dr. Merhi. “I just consider myself a researcher. All I want is to make the dream of motherhood come true for as many patients as possible.”
