Elizabeth Pritts, M.D.
Dr. Elizabeth Pritts is internationally recognized for her expertise in the treatment of fertility, fibroids, endometriosis, and endoscopic surgery. She is dual-certified in General Obstetrics and Gynecology, and in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. In addition, she completed a surgical fellowship in Advanced Gynecologic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy. Today she is a national leader in the use of robotic surgery for gynecologic disorders.
Dr. Pritts served as an assistant professor in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, as a clinical fellow at the University of California at San Francisco, and as an instructor at Yale University School of Medicine. She has authored more than 70 articles for scientific publications and has lectured throughout the world on reproduction and fertility.
Dr. Pritts is regularly included in Madison Magazine’s list of Top Doctors and, since 2010, has been named to the annual list of Best Doctors in America. She is also on the board of directors for Family Health Ministries, a group that supports education and healthcare in the country of Haiti.
Dr. Elizabeth Pritts co-founded Wisconsin Fertility Institute with her husband, Dr. David Olive, in 2007. Dr. Olive retired in 2016, but Dr. Pritts (being far too young to retire) asked Dr. Gretchen Collins to join her in 2018. The two have merged their styles into what they hope is the Dream Team for our patients.
