About this book

Oncofertility is a specialty that bridges the disciplines of reproductive endocrinology and infertility and oncology, with the goal of expanding the reproductive options of cancer patients. Given fertility risks associated with specific cancer treatments, as well as the improved long-term survival made possible by these therapies, there has been growing interest in expanding reproductive options for cancer patients. Indeed, both cancer survivors and the medical community have acknowledged the importance of patient counseling and the pursuit of fertility preservation options prior to starting cancer treatment.

Oncofertility Medical Practice: Clinical Issues and Implementation is the third in a series of timely and indispensable books on fertility preservation for cancer patients—the first one focused on advances in basic science research and the second one offered ethical, legal, and social perspectives on the theme. This book elucidates the latest practices and emerging treatments in oncofertility and provides necessary information on the successes, risks, and limitations of fertility preserving technologies. Authoritative and insightful, written by an impressive multi-disciplinary cadre of specialists, this book is a valuable up-to-date resource for all those practicing in this demanding field.

“This excellent text is an invaluable resource and a “must read” for clinicians and researchers interested in Oncofertility. The editors and authors need to be congratulated for their fine work.” Roger A. Lobo, MD, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Columbia University and Past President of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book has 15 chapters, divided into five parts. In addition there are seven appendices. There are 25 contributors, all from USA. … This is an excellent review of oncofertility, not only for gynecologists, but also for other specialties handling children and reproductive age men and women with cancer.” (Tom Tanbo, AOGS Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica, Vol. 92 (1), January, 2013)

“Oncofertility Medical Practice: Clinical Issues and Implementation has successfully contrived to bring together an understanding of the theoretical principles of gonadal effects of cancer therapy with all the clinical and practical aspects of fertility preservation for cancer survivors. The book should be read by both oncologist and fertility specialists, as it presents clearly the degree of overlap that is required by the different healthcare providers to achieve a meaningful outcome for the cancer patient. … This is a comprehensive and very well-written book … .” (Nivedita Reddy, The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Vol. 15 (2), 2013)
