Accomplished Women’s Health Experts Join UConn Health

FARMINGTON, CONN. – Accomplished women’s health experts Dr. Anthony Luciano and Dr. Danielle Luciano are now seeing patients at UConn Health in Southington.

The father-daughter team, both graduates of the UConn School of Medicine, offer complete care for women including:

  •  Primary and preventive gynecological care
  • Advanced fertility services, including IVF
  • Care for conditions, such as endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal bleeding, polycystic ovarian syndrome and Menopausal health.
  • Advanced minimally invasive surgery

Anthony Luciano is fellowship trained and board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility and is a professor with UConn’s medical school. He has a long and distinguished career with UConn. While doing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UConn he assisted in the delivery of the very first baby born at John Dempsey Hospital in 1975. After spending several years teaching at the University of Iowa and Tufts University in Boston, he returned to Connecticut and became the director of UConn’s Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.  He was instrumental in developing UConn’s IVF program and in 1987 one of his patients became the first woman in New England to have a baby with a donor egg.

Danielle Luciano is certified in advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and was recently elected to the national fellowship board for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. She specializes in robotic surgery and has developed an expertise in gynecologic ultrasonography.  Luciano has done extensive research into reproductive surgery and issues surrounding sexual function, publishing several articles in peer-reviewed journals.

After several years together in private practice, both father and daughter are excited to return to UConn. “We decided that we wanted a more academic environment and we wanted to be more actively involved with teaching and scholarly activity,” says Anthony Luciano.

Danielle Luciano adds, “We are very happy to be here working together and we hope we will make a contribution to the further growth and success of our department and UConn Health.”

Anthony Luciano is a resident of Winsted and Danielle Luciano resides in Farmington.
