Dr. David Olive MD

Dr. Olive received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX in 1979. He completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University, Chicago, IL and a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at Duke University, Durham, NC. Dr. Olive has served as Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale School of medicine and, more recently, the University of Wisconsin, where he was also vice-chairman. He currently is retired from clinical practice and serves as president of the Wisconsin Fertility Institute.

Dr. Olive’s research in reproductive endocrinology has covered a variety of areas, all tied together by the common thread of understanding disease processes that alter normal hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian-uterine functions. The disorders of primary focus have been endometriosis and uterine fibroids, with some work also in polycystic ovarian syndrome. His methodology has ranged from basic bench research to clinical trials and, recently, epidemiologic investigation.

Dr. Olive's expertise in laparoscopy and other minimally invasive surgical techniques has made him a sought after teacher of other surgeons both in the United States and abroad.
