Pedro J. Beauchamp
MD, FACOG, FACS, REI

CURRICULUM VITAE

Dr. Pedro J. Beauchamp was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in September, 1951. He studied at the Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola and graduated with honors in 1969. From a young age he had an interest in biology and reproduction, winning a Science Fair award for a project on chicken embryo development. He completed his undergraduate course work in three years, graduating Magna Cum Laude from Boston College. In 1976 he graduated from the School of Medicine of the University de Puerto Rico where he obtained his Medical Doctor degree Magna Cum Laude, finishing sixth in his class. He specialized in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. From 1980 to 1982 he received formal training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, one of the most renowned worldwide in this sub-specialty. During his residence and fellowship, Dr. Beauchamp studied with nine professors who became presidents of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (formerly the American Fertility Society), the most prestigious American organization in this branch of medicine.

In 1982, upon completing his fellowship on infertility in Pennsylvania, he joined the faculty of the IVF team of the University of Texas at Houston. This was the fourth program in the United States to begin to offer treatments, and the third to obtain pregnancies. In Houston, Dr. Beauchamp was directly responsible for the first triplet birth in the United States and for the conception of the first IVF baby born in Argentina. Dr. Beauchamp's work in Houston focused on what today is known as GIFT (gamete intrafallopian tube transfer) and TET (tubal embryo transfer).

In January, 1985, Dr. Beauchamp returned to his birthplace, Puerto Rico, and established his reproductive endocrinology and infertility practice in Bayamón, as well as the first in vitro fertilization program on the island. The first IVF patients were treated in September, 1985. The second patient in the program became pregnant and gave birth, in May, 1986, to the first IVF baby in Puerto Rico, Central America and the Caribbean. In June,1986, the first baby was born in the GIFT program; the first baby produced by a combination of IVF and GIFT was born in August, 1988. Up to that moment, follicular aspiration and fallopian tube transfer were all conducted through laparoscopy. Dr. Beauchamp, abreast of the newest medical advances of the times, conducted his first ultrasound-guided transvaginal follicular aspiration on 17 May, 1987.

Based on the success, simplicity, and savings offered by this technique, after this date Dr. Beauchamp continued offering the IVF program on an out-patient basis at his office. Dr. Beauchamp and his team were responsible for the birth of the first twins in Puerto Rico in March, 1990; triplets in April, 1991; quadruplets in May 1992; and the first baby born from an egg donation in June, 1993. The first IVF births in the Lesser Antilles (such as St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Marteen, St. Kitts, Tortola, Anguilla, among other places) and the first IVF with ICSI birth in Venezuela are the result of the work of Dr. Beauchamp's team in Puerto Rico.

Dr. Beauchamp has been certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology since 1983, and in 1984 was the first Puerto Rican to receive a diploma from the American Board of OBS-GYN's Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. It is worth noting that twenty-five years later, fewer than 950 physicians have obtained that certification in the United States. He has been a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology since 1984. Dr. Beauchamp has been a member of the Board of Editors of prestigious medical journals such as La Revista Latinoamericana de Fertilidad y Esterilidad and the Journal of Human Reproduction and Genetics. He has been a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons since 1988, and was director of the scientific program of the Puerto Rico chapter in 1999. Additionally, he has been the delegate for Puerto Rico of the Latin American Federation of Sterility and Fertility Societies (Federación Latinoamericana de Sociedades de Esterilidad y Fertilidad, FLASEF) since 1986.

Dr. Beauchamp's CV includes more than 50 publications and presentations on his specialty in medical journals and conferences. He has received numerous awards and distinctions throughout his career. In February, 1987, he received the Guanín Prize from the then Governor, the Hon. Rafael Hernández Colón, and the Sales and Marketing Executives, which is awarded to individuals who have best represented the image of Puerto Rico in the island and abroad. Since the inception of the Doctor's Choice Award of the Revista Buena Vida in 1985, Dr. Beauchamp has annually received this distinction, awarded by his colleagues as one of the most outstanding physicians in his field in Puerto Rico. Dr. Beauchamp is a member of several medical societies, including the prestigious American Society for Reproductive Medicine, of which he has been a member since 1980; attending every annual conference since. He was a founding partner of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), an organization that guides the practice of IVF in the United States; the Society of Reproductive Surgeons, and the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (whose indispensable requirement is to have passed the infertility board exams). His IVF program was among the first 35 founded in the United States. Since his establishment in Puerto Rico, he has helped thousands of infertile couples to achieve a much-hoped-for pregnancy. In the last few years, he has obtained a pregnancy rate that is at least 20% higher than that obtained by American programs.

Dr. Pedro J. Beauchamp is one of the highly regarded specialists in reproductive endocrinology and infertility in the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean. He was one of the pioneers in the field of infertility, and specifically of in vitro fertilization.

Amaury J. Lloréns Martínez
MD, FACOG, FACS, REI

CURRICULUM VITAE

Amaury J. Lloréns-Martínez received his MD degree from the Universidad Central del Caribe in 1994. Later he studied obstetrics and gynecology, doing an internship at the Caguas Regional Hospital of the University de Puerto Rico, and a residency at the San Juan Municipal Hospital, where he graduated in 1999. Dr. Lloréns was the first graduate from this residency program to be accepted and to complete formal training and receive a post-doctoral research fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. In 2002 he completed a fellowship at the New Jersey-UMDNJ, and returned to Puerto Rico to join Dr. Pedro Beauchamp's team.

During his fellowship, Dr. Lloréns focused his research on factors that affect endometrial growth. Normal growth of the endometrium, the inner layer of the uterus, is critical for the implantation of a pregnancy. He also researched the effect of exogenous gonadotropins during fertility treatments on pregnancy. These issues were presented at the 2001 and 2002 conferences of the American Endocrine Society and at the Society for Gynecological Investigation in 2002, and were published in the scientific journal Fertility and Sterility in December, 2004.

Dr. Lloréns is an associate member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American Medical Association, and a member of the medical staff of Hospital San Pablo and of the San Juan Health Centre. Dr. Lloréns is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is an active candidate for the Boards of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. At present, he is a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the San Juan Municipal Hospital.
