My Clinical Approach

I believe that every fertility problem has a personal solution. Prior to adjusting the personal treatment.

I study in depth the case including a detailed conversation, advanced laboratory tests, and ultrasound for the examination of the ovaries. After processing all the data I am suitable for each patient / patient a unique treatment protocol. I have developed new and varied treatment modalities which can not be found in another clinic. I combine treatment with a wide range of problems that may affect fertility such as: nutrition, hormonal changes, mental changes. I am a great stork of preventive treatments and want to help many women prevent fertility problems before they get worse. I was especially attracted to the field of fertility preservation as it brings everything that is beautiful in modern medicine. Life-threatening patients and major mental difficulties who need immidiate help to prevent fertility problems in the future.

My job is in a short time to give them the best professional and personal treatment. The decisions are not simple, and require close cooperation between surgeon oncologists and the fertility doctor. Fertility treatments in cancer patients are the most challenging because many factors influence the therapeutic decisions according to the patient’s cancer and the urgency of solving the fertility problem, while exercising discretion regarding the urgency of treatment of cancer. I love to devote myself to my patients and give me all of myself and the challenge of treating a cancer patient gives me great satisfaction.

Tools I learned from preserving fertility in cancer patients can be contained on other women. Fertility conservation is an important process for women who have not yet had children but are interested in doing so in the future. Waiting for older age reduces the chances of pregnancy and today we have many tools to ensure future fertility by current actions both in cancer patients and in healthy women.
