Fertility preservation is a subspecialty within the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, that focuses on helping reproductive-age men and women who are faced with cancer treatment understand their risks of infertility and possible treatment options. Research into how cancer affects reproductive health and preservation options are growing, sparked in large part by the increase in cancer patients’ survival rates. We understand that time is of the essence when faced with a cancer diagnosis and are committed to seeing these patients within 48 hours of when they initially contact us.
Fertility preservation, such as ovarian tissue or oocyte cryopreservation, may also be used to prevent infertility, as well as birth defects, associated with advanced maternal age. Advances in technology and medical expertise have provided us with more options than ever to help preserve our patients’ fertility.
The following videos discuss the options available to men and women that are in need of fertility preservation. To schedule an appointment to discuss your preservation options, please contact our Raleigh office at 919-908-0000.
