Dear colleagues,

Preservation of fertility has recently become a very important objective in gynecologic oncology. This is the result of both the rising incidence of gynecologic cancer in young patients and the increasing age at first pregnancy. Today, in young patients with gynecologic cancer, fertility preservation is possible and depends primarily on the extent and type of cancer.

Optimal patient management should include a clear decision-making process, adequate counseling about the future oncological and obstetrical risks, appropriate management, and careful follow-up within a multidisciplinary setting.

In this congress, new technologies in cryopreservation, chemotherapy, radiation and surgical procedures will be discussed in order to provide clear insights into possible treatments for this specific patient group—people who want to maintain normal lives despite battling with the aftermath of cancer.

This educational congress benefits not only oncologists, but also general gynecological practitioners wishing to gain knowledge in exciting fertility preservation advancements.
The format allocates a significant amount of time to interactive debates and audience questions to the expert panels. Participants are encouraged to take an active role in the discussions with faculty members in this unique open environment.
We look forward to welcoming you at the first OPFP Congress in the lovely city of Berlin, March 21-23, 2013.
Uzi Beller, Israel; Achim Schneider, Germany; Zeev Shoham, Israel
Congress Co-Chairs for OPFP
