Dr. Rydze elected to continue his subspecialty training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Baylor College of Medicine. During his fellowship training at Baylor he also earned his Masters in Clinical Science Investigation (MSCI). His research has focused on better understanding the factors controlling oocyte (egg) development in the ovary. He is the primary author on numerous peer reviewed publications and has even helped coauthor a book chapter on the ovary. Dr. Rydze is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).

Dr. Rydze, his wife, and two children are excited to return to the Midwest to be closer to family and become part of the Milwaukee community. He is also looking forward to helping couples achieve their own reproductive goals.
