The Vitae Clinic
opened its doors in October 2010, enveloped in the prayers of many and the support of The John Paul II Life Center. Our mission — to provide excellence in women’s healthcare while promoting a Culture of Life — has been embraced by the Greater Austin community and by patients from as far away as Dallas and Houston.
Inspiration for the Vitae Clinic came from the great successes accomplished at the National Center for Women’s Health at the Pope Paul VI Institute for Human Reproduction in Omaha, Nebraska. It was there that Thomas Hilgers, MD, pioneered a standardized method of natural family planning (effective for both avoiding and achieving pregnancy) called the Creighton Model FertilityCare System™. Through Hilgers’ extensive research and use of this system as a basis for evaluating, monitoring and maintain a woman’s fertility, the new medical surgical science of NaProTECHNOLOGY™ was developed. Since 1976, thousands of women and couples have been assisted by NaProTECHNOLOGY™.
Dr. Jeremy Kalamarides
, Ob/Gyn and Medical Director of the Vitae Clinic, was a research assistant with Dr. Hilgers for four years prior to receiving his medical training. Inspired by Dr. Hilgers’ breakthroughs, Dr. Kalamarides has dedicated his career to helping women and their families achieve the benefits of Natural Procreative Technology.
We at the Vitae Clinic are called to a higher standard of care for our patients in all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology.
Our practice is in full compliance with the ethical and religious directives for Catholic healthcare services and therefore we do not provide oral or other artificial contraceptives, provide or refer for abortions or use methods of achieving pregnancy that contradict these directives.
