Dr. Jeffrey Buch (pronounced "Bush"), practices in the Dallas /Ft.Worth area. Dr. Buch is a world renowned surgeon and fertility specialist. Dr. Buch has been held in the highest regards by his peers and receives numerous referrals from fellow doctors all accross the world for his reverse vasectomy success.

Dr. Buch was raised in the Detroit area, where he earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan. He remained at the University of Michigan for Medical School, and pursued his Surgery and Urology training at the Albany Medical Center of Union College in Albany, New York.

Dr. Buch trained with colleagues in Urology with his main area of interest focused on Male Infertility and Vasectomy Reversal. After completing his residency in Albany he went on to pursue additional training in Male Infertility and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. After his 2 year Fellowship in Male Infertility and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal as one of only 5 American Urological Association Research Scholars in his year, Jeff was recruited in 1987 to build a new Division of Male Infertility and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha Nebraska. Soon thereafter, Dr. Buch received the Male Reproduction Prize Paper Award by the American Fertility Society (now known as the American Society of Reproductive Medicine) at their annual meeting, recognizing his contributions to research in Male Infertility.

Throughout his career, Dr. Buch has been highly recruited by other medical centers for his expertise in Male Infertility and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal. He relocated to the University of Connecticut Medical Center in greater Hartford, Connecticut in 1990. During his time in Connecticut, Jeff published several more research papers, and trained several residents and 2 research fellows in the field of Male Infertility and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal. After his second success in establishing a new training program in Male Infertility and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal, Dr. Buch was recruited to a private practice opportunity in greater Dallas/Fort Worth, where he established the North Texas Male Infertility Center in 1994.He was honored with appointment of clinical professor of urology at U.T southwestern medical school in 2005.
