Egg and Ovarian Cortex Freezing

Egg and Ovarian Cortex Freezing is a procedure involving freezing and storage of the ovarian tissue. Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or surgical procedures that require removal of the ovaries or uterus, affect women’s reproductive system. Ovarian cortex freezing can be performed before cancer treatments so that these women may become pregnant in the future. After the cancer treatments, the ovarian tissue can be placed inside the body again.
