ONCOFERTILITY

Duke Supportive Care and Survivorship Center's Oncofertility program, provides patients and their families with education and psychosocial support for fertility decision making.  We help to facilitate rapid referral to fertility preservation services for cancer patients of reproductive age treated at the Duke Cancer Institute or Duke Children’s Hospital and Health Center.

For emergent consults, patients will be seen between 24-48 hours. The oncofertility program has a designated patient navigator to also provide patient education, assist with placing referrals/ensuring appropriate follow-up and navigating patients through the process. Resources to assist patients with reducing the financial burden of fertility preservation are also available.

In the video below, providers discuss the importance of oncofertility and describe the fertility preservation process.
