About this Textbook

Bringing together more than a decade of dedicated investigation and clinical work, this unique textbook is a unified, comprehensive source for oncofertility research and medical practice that is both authoritative and up-to-date. It will serve as the primary oncofertility reference for the various medical disciplines that must be coordinated to provide care for young cancer patients. Moreover, it contains case studies that are prismatic for new entrants into the field. 
The book is organized around the major themes of the discipline and includes current research, clinical practice, emerging technologies and didactic questions and is divided into six thematic sections: 

  • Fertility implications in both oncologic and non-oncologic settings
  • Options for fertility preservation, both male and female
  • Care of the oncofertility patient, including contraception and pregnancy considerations
  • Oncofertility in clinical practice, from setting up a new program to genetic counseling and communication
  • Ethical and legal considerations
  • Advances in the basic science of oncofertility

In each chapter, bulleted key learning points and review study questions bookend the text. Six additional sections, comprised exclusively of clinical case studies illustrating the management of both oncologic and non-oncologic conditions, add to the pedagogical value of the text.

Timely and utilizing the best current evidence, Textbook of Oncofertility Research and Practice: A Multidisciplinary Approach will be an invaluable resource for students, residents, fellows and professionals in reproductive endocrinology, pediatric endocrinology, adult and pediatric oncology, adult and pediatric urology, breast surgery, radiation oncology and allied professions where iatrogenic treatments or genetic conditions result in infertility.

Reviews

“One goal of the Oncofertility Consortium, a novel transdisciplinary initiative, was the education and training of providers who treat cancer patients, but do not have reproduction on their radar screens. For most, if not all cancer survivors, family building is synonymous with quality of life. It all starts with basic education and awareness of the facts and what opportunities and treatment options are possible. This textbook, co-edited by Drs. Woodruff, Vitek and Shah, provides all the needed information; it should be a “must read” for any healthcare provider, primary care or specialist treating pediatric cancer patients or patients of reproductive age with cancer.” (Christos Coutifaris, MD, PhD Celso-Ramon Garcia Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology University of Pennsylvania, President, ASRM, US)
