Women facing cancer treatment have an urgent need to preserve their reproductive options. Even women not facing cancer have a need to preserve their fertility due to the natural decline in fertility with advancing age. Dr. Schattman has extensive expertise in caring for patients who are considering preserving or extending their fertility by freezing eggs or embryos and ovarian tissue harvesting. His research includes enhancing outcomes of ovarian tissue transplantation. Egg or embryo freezing is an option for women in a wide range of circumstances, including those who may have difficulty getting pregnant after cancer treatment (oncofertility). At our center, we have many years of experience with egg and embryo freezing-in fact, we are one of the pioneering centers in the country.
