Dr. Julian Escobar

Board Certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology, & Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility

Dr. Escobar is board certified in both Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility and Obstetrics & Gynecology. After attending high school in the DFW, he graduated with high honors in Genetics from the University of Georgia and was subsequently awarded prestigious research fellowships at the National Institutes of Health and Harvard Medical School. He then obtained his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and completed his OBGYN residency at Northwestern University in Chicago. He later relocated back to Dallas to pursue fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Escobar has conducted research in various areas of reproduction, including decreased ovarian reserve, hormone production in pregnancy, polycystic ovarian syndrome, assisted reproductive technologies, and reproductive surgical techniques. He has presented his findings at national scientific meetings and in prominent peer-reviewed journals.

Dr. Escobar has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery and reproductive microsurgical technique for tubal ligation reversal and outpatient correction of abnormalities of the uterus, tubes and ovaries. He also specializes in all aspect of assisted reproductive technologies.

Dr. Escobar has been awarded the Rising Star Award by Texas Monthly Magazine, and selected as a Best Doctor in Infertility by Dallas Magazine. He has lived in several Latin American countries and is completely fluent in Spanish.

Dr Escobar is not only an expert in the fertility field and LGBT/Third party reproduction, but he has also been on the other side of the table as a patient. To build his beautiful family with his partner, Pieter, they resorted to egg donation and surrogacy, and thus he has a deep personal experience in third-party reproduction, the legal and emotional hurdles, as well as the social and cultural challenges that come with two men raising children in Dallas, Texas. They are raising their children in the Catholic Church, and speaking Dutch, Spanish and English at home!
