Dr Esler’s reputation for pursuing excellence is well known in IVF circles. He is widely regarded as a pioneer in ‘day five freeze-all’ cycles, which includes the use of agonist triggers that eliminate the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). His pioneering techniques eliminated OHSS, and his Toowoomba clinic was the first OHSS free clinic in Australia.
Dr Esler’s extensive experience in ‘freeze-all’ cycles has been recognised with the publication of an international journal article he co-authored titled ‘Should we still perform fresh embryo transfers in ART?’ which was published in 2019 in the prestigious medical journal, Human Reproduction.
