Dr. Yuzpe on Fertility Preservation for Cancer Patients

March 13, 2023

Olive reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. Al Yuzpe, speaks with CityNews about fertility preservation for cancer patients.


“The government has never been overly generous in one, funding in vitro fertilization (IVF) in general for infertile patients, they have not been generous in funding special techniques that we can diagnose and eliminate certain genetic diseases, and they certainly haven’t been forthcoming with funds to cover women who want to do fertility preservation because they have a cancer diagnosis.”
