About Us

Western Fertility Institute

Located in beautiful Los Angeles, California, Western Fertility Institute strives to provide the very best care to our surrogate mothers and the greatest chances of conception. With over 20 years experience in the field, the dedication and hard work of our team is reflected in our excellent success rates.

Having the ability to assist someone with their goal of conceiving is not something we take lightly. Many of our intended parents have struggled with fertility for years, and surrogacy is their last resort. They may have all but given up hope.

Without surrogacy, many people would never experience the joys of becoming a parent. We look forward to you joining our program and being part of beautiful journeys.

Dr. Ashim Kumar

Program Director

Our team has been successfully lead by Dr. Ashim Kumar, board certified in reproductive endocrinology and obstetrics and gynecology. In recent years Dr. Kumar has focused his efforts for those that have had difficulty conceiving and require third party reproduction (egg donor and/or gestational surrogacy). Over half of his current patients are from overseas which include Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, The United Kingdom, etc. Combining meticulous attention to detail, 7-day a week work ethic, the best support staff (nursing & embryology) and the latest in technology, he is able to obtain the highest pregnancy rates achievable today. He has been asked to present his work across the world including Australia, India, China, and Italy and has contacts in numerous clinics that collaborate closely to provide seamless care.

He completed his fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility through a combined program that allowed him to work with world-renowned leaders in the field at both University of California Los Angeles and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Kumar completed his medical education and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Kumar has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals on endocrine and surgical aspects of infertility and has presented his work at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. He serves as an ad hoc reviewer for the journal Fertility and Sterility. Dr. Kumar has written several textbook chapters on management of tubal factor infertility and ovarian function including premature ovarian failure, and has a special interest in hormonal and functional causes of infertility such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), tubal disorders, male factor infertility, and third party (donor/surrogate) reproduction.
