Thus far, it’s safe to say that 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. Over the last year, the oncofertility consortium has been busy putting together the third book in the oncofertility series with some of the most prominent members of the oncofertility community. The first book, Oncofertility: Fertility Preservation for Cancer Survivors, addressed the complex reproductive issues associated with the treatment of malignant diseases by recognized leaders in the field who discussed scientific advances, applications of modern technology, psychosocial implications, ethical considerations, and current options for men and women confronted with therapies that affect fertility. The second book, Oncofertility: Ethical, Legal, Social, and Medical Perspectives, moved beyond oncofertility as a science and medical technology and to addressed the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of the field.

Oncofertility Medical Practice: Clinical Issues and Implementation, the third in the series on fertility preservation for cancer patients, explains the latest practices and emerging treatments in oncofertility and provides necessary information on the successes, risks, and limitations of fertility preserving technologies. Oncofertility Medical Practice: Clinical Issues and Implementation is an up-to-date resource for all those practicing in the field of oncofertility, but this book is specifically geared toward clinicians.  As with the previous two books, Oncofertility Medical Practice: Clinical Issues and Implementation is written by an impressive multi-disciplinary group of specialists in the fields of oncology, reproductive endocrinology, urology, patient navigation, bioethics and many more.
