Benito Villanueva MD, FACOG, Medical Director

About Benito Villanueva

With well over 30 years in the infertility field, Dr. Villanueva’s impressive track record has earned him the respect of his fellow Reproductive Endocrinologists and the admiration of his patients. 

In 1982, Dr. Villanueva marked an important milestone in the field of IVF. Only one year after the first successful IVF in the U.S. and three years after the first successful IVF in the world, he became the first fertility specialist to perform a successful IVF cycle in San Diego. His vast experience in IVF is of great value in many of the complicated IVF cycles that we routinely do.


The U.S. News and World Report has rated him as one of the most best in his field since 1995. Dr. Villanueva is one of the few physicians licensed to practice both in the U.S. and Mexico. He spends time on both sides of the U.S. and Mexico border serving patients at state-of-the-art healthcare clinics. Many of his patients fly in from South America and Europe because of his expertise and sterling reputation.
