About Fertility Preservation in Pittsburgh
The Fertility Preservation Program in Pittsburgh provides world-class fertility care services for adults and children. If you will be receiving cancer treatment or getting ready to deploy with the armed forces, this is the time to explore options for having children in the future. The Fertility Preservation Program in Pittsburgh gives you options for having the family you always wanted, or adding to the family you already have.
Adult men and women can freeze eggs, sperm, or embryos prior to cancer treatment or deployment. There are no standard options to preserve the fertility of boys and girls who are not yet producing mature eggs or sperm. For these young patients, we are approved to freeze testicular tissue (boys) or ovarian tissue (girls) that might be used in the future to restore fertility when experimental techniques emerge from the research pipeline.
Let’s get started together. To learn about the reproductive side effects of treatments and options to preserve fertility, contact one of our specialists today. This is a discussion that should ideally happen before toxic therapies are initiated or deployment into harm’s way.
