Ovarian Tissue Freezing is an experimental procedure where a woman or child’s ovarian tissue is harvested and frozen, with the ultimate goal that their tissue is re-transplanted remote from cancer therapy to restore hormonal production and fertility. There are specific criteria that would deem a woman or child eligible for this fertility preservation technique.
