About the Authors
  • Infertility and Assisted Reproduction presents, in detail, the techniques and philosophies behind medical procedures of infertility and assisted reproduction. World-class experts in their field, representing research from 18 different countries, have contributed to this groundbreaking textbook covering one of the most rapidly changing and hotly debated fields in medicine. Different countries have different restrictions on the research techniques that can be applied to this field, and, therefore, experts from around the world bring varied and unique authorities to different subjects in reproductive technology. This comprehensive textbook encompasses the latest research into the physiology of reproduction, infertility evaluation and treatment, and assisted reproduction and concludes with perspectives on the ethical dilemmas faced by clinicians and professionals. This book is designed to be a definitive resource for those working in the areas of reproductive medicine the world over.

    • Input from clinicians and specialists from around the world, reflects a broad range of available opinions and techniques
    • Comprehensively covers options for patient and ethical dilemmas faced by specialists
    • Key points at the end of each chapter
