Ovarian Tissue Cyropreservation

Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation involves slicing the ovarian cortex in one of the ovaries into very thin slices, then processing the sections with cryoprotectants and preserving them. We recommend it in cases where the aspiring mama needs to undergo treatment for cancer.

This way, once treatment is done, the existing ovarian cortex that has been exposed to the radiation and chemotherapeutic drugs is removed, and the preserved cortical tissue is thawed and reconstructed over the ovary using micro-sutures. The ovaries are then stimulated to produce oocytes after a quarantine period, after which ART procedures can be carried out.
