Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, a Manhattan-based fertility center, and the Mount Sinai Health System have launched an integrated oncofertility program at The Blavatnik Family Chelsea Medical Center at Mount Sinai to provide individuals and couples the benefit of advanced medical technologies to preserve fertility.

Jovana Lekovich, MD, a Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York physician and Director of the Oncofertility Program, will work in close collaboration with Mount Sinai oncologists to coordinate care and fertility preservation options for those entering into cancer treatment. “An important yet often overlooked aspect of cancer treatment is the frequent negative impact on human fertility,” noted Dr. Lekovich. “With the advancement of science, medicine, and technology, cancer survival rates have increased tremendously in the past 2 decades. By focusing on fertility preservation prior to cancer treatment, we focus on survival and quality of life after cancer.”

Dr. Lekovich specializes in all aspects of reproductive medicine and infertility, including conditions such as amenorrhea, polycystic ovary syndrome, and diminished ovarian reserve with ovulation induction. ■
