Cryopreservation refers to the freezing of eggs (oocytes). Oocyte preservation is an important option for women undergoing cancer treatment, for those who may wish to postpone childbearing for personal or medical reasons, or for women with a family history of early menopause. Recent advances have resulted in improved oocyte survival, fertilization and pregnancy rates.
For Cancer Patients
Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation are the most common causes of permanent infertility in young patients. Recent advances in fertility preservation are offering more options for both male and female patients.
The most proven and successful method of fertility preservation for women is embryo freezing. Other options include egg freezing and ovarian tissue freezing. For men, it is sperm banking. Our team is experienced in these and other techniques, and in recommending the right technology for each individual.
In every case, timing is crucial, especially when medical conditions require treatments that may be harmful to the reproductive system. We work with our patients to preserve fertility in a caring, supportive an affordable manner.
