From the Fertility Preservation Program’s Website:
Chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer and other conditions can damage fertility and reduce or eliminate a patient's chance of having children in the future. This is a significant human health issue because improved treatments have dramatically increased cancer survival rates. Therefore, issues affecting quality of life after cancer (including fertility) are increasingly important to survivors.
The Fertility Preservation Program of Pittsburgh is committed to
1. educating patients and their physicians about the reproductive consequences of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer or other conditions;
2. providing state of the art reproductive technologies to preserve fertility;
3. pioneering new reproductive technologies to preserve fertility;
4. rapidly translating these new technologies to the clinic, and;
5. training the next generation of clinicians and researchers in the rapidly evolving discipline of fertility preservation.
