Oncofertility

 

Oncofertility is the preservation of fertility in women and men prior to treatment for cancer. Cancer survival rates in young adults have risen dramatically in part due to improved treatments, however certain therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery can sometimes hinder reproduction.

Reproductive Associates of Delaware is proud to be one of 50 participating sites in a network called the Oncofertility Consortium. This nationwide program, overseen by the National Institutes of Health, is designed to explore the reproductive future of cancer survivors. It provides our patients and physicians with access to the latest clinical care initiatives, research, and technologies in fertility preservation.
