Oncofertility has emerged as a way to address potential lost or impaired fertility in those with a history of cancer. Active biomedical research is developing new ways to help those afflicted with cancer to preserve their ability to have biological children. Oncofertility: Ethical, Legal, Social, and Medical Perspectives moves beyond oncofertility as a science and medical technology and begins to address the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of this emerging field. Dr. Teresa K. Woodruff establishes a team of oncologists, fertility specialists, social scientists, and education and policy makers to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion on the clinical care of women who will lose their fertility due to cancer treatment. "Cancer and its treatment will often compromise fertility. Concerns relevant to reproduction remains one of the most important issues for patients. In this text renown experts discuss the spectrum of critical issues embraced by Oncofertility." - Steven T. Rosen, M.D. Series Editor
