Why I’m Here For YOU

“Every person and couple with infertility requires a unique, personalized approach for treatment. Each plan must take into account both the medical and physical circumstances as well as personal feelings regarding the treatment options.”

About Peter Y Lu, M.D.


Dr. Peter Y. Lu is board-certified in ObGyn, reproductive endocrinology, and infertility. His areas of focus include fertility treatments and assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), and fertility preservation.

Dr. Lu began practicing in 1996 after completing his medical degree at Georgetown University, School of Medicine in Washington, and residency at Louisiana State University Medical Center in New Orleans. He has also completed an obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive endocrinology fellowship at the Mayo Clinic and Foundation in Rochester, Minnesota. In 2024, Dr. Lu was voted one of Castle Connolly’s 2024 Top Doctors.

He chose this field of medicine because infertility treatment utilizes a combination of medication, surgery, and advanced laboratory technologies to achieve successful pregnancies. Additionally, he feels there is significant emotional stress and distress associated with fertility problems, which also need to be addressed in all treatment plans. Dr. Lu enjoys the challenge of evaluating and finding out why a couple is not conceiving and creating a customized treatment plan with clear next steps.

Today, Dr. Lu shares his experience as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, School of Medicine.

Approach to Treatment

Dr. Lu understands that everyone has their own unique fertility goals and struggles. Dr. Lu makes an effort to establish trust with every patient and builds a relationship with them based on mutual respect and empathy. When working with Dr. Lu, he’ll ensure you have a thorough understanding of every fertility option available so you can make an informed decision about growing your family.

Dr. Lu believes his greatest strength is interacting with patients and explaining the complexities of problems and solutions in an understandable way. He wants his patients to be clear about all aspects of their fertility treatment, including the rationale for their “game plan,” with a successful pregnancy as the ultimate reward.

“I focus on the four “Ds” of patient care: data, decision, diagnosis, DOING something.”
