Fertility Preservation

Certain treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can negatively impact a patient's fertility — the ability to have children.

The fertility preservation team at the Lurie Cancer Center can help patients understand:

  • How fertility will be affected by prescribed treatment
  • How to talk with the medical team about fertility
  • How to plan a family before, during and after treatment

We work across many specialties in order to best accommodate our patients' specific needs. This emphasis in collaboration allows for truly comprehensive treatment in an effort to optimally educate and inform patients about fertility before, during and after treatment.
