Infertility is often a side effect of life-saving cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Weill Cornell’s Center for Reproductive Medicine fertility preservation program assists women who wish to retain their potential to have children in the future by freezing (cryopreserving) their eggs (oocytes) or fertilized eggs (embryos) for use in future pregnancies. Ovarian tissue may also be preserved depending on patient circumstances.
This preservation program has a history of supporting breast, cervical, colorectal, and lymphoma patients quickly and efficiently. Once the patient consults with their surgeon or medical oncologist a call to the dedicated fertility preservation hotline leads to an office visit within 1 to 2 days. The medical team includes an obstetrician/ gynecologist, fertility preservation coordinator, psychologist, and nurse.
