Oncofertility is a branch of medicine for those about to receive a treatment that may be destructive to ovaries or testicles, affecting fertility.
“Oncofertility helps in preparing for those that are to undergo therapy treatment, by addressing fertility for the future so they can have a baby once they conclude the treatment that they are undergoing,” said to Keith Hansen, M.D., reproductive endocrinologist at Sanford Health.
One of only a few experts in this field, in this region, Dr. Hansen explains how this process works, and the importance of oncofertility, during this podcast edition of “A Better You,” which airs Saturday mornings on KSOO-AM.
This program originally aired in January 2018.
Sanford Health is one of the largest health care systems in the nation, with 44 hospitals and nearly 300 clinics in nine states and four countries.
