The International Center for Scientific Debate (ICSD) recently hosted a discussion on fertility preservation in Barcelona for two days along with the Dexeus Foundation for Women's Health. "Fertility Preservation Update: Consensus Meeting" included clinical professionals and fertility specialists and revealed the latest in fertility preservation technologies and techniques.
While geared towards oncologists and oncofertility, the significance of such a large debate should not go unreported. Meetings of this magnitude highlight the growing popularity and possibilities being developed by fertility doctors around the world, and provide important insights into the growing field. In addition, these discussions emphasize the options available to women who suffer from infertility and provide hope to those wishing to overcome such adversities through safe fertility treatments.
Joint Scientific Director Anna Veiga participated in the event and is an advocate for this new model of scientific debate being held overseas. In a recent interview with Biocat, Veiga stresses the importance of less aggressive treatments in order to avoid hyperstimulation and multiple pregnancies. The ICSD talks, she mentions, are a practical way in getting the world's leading fertility specialists together in order to discuss the safest protocols and options for patients when it comes to fertility preservation.
The director of our clinic, Dr. John Zhang, recently spoke on oncofertility at a medical center in Westchester.
We couldn’t agree more with Veiga’s viewpoint and we're excited to hear that fertility preservation was a main topic at the ICSD.
