One of the revolutionary procedures in fertility treatment that Dr. Puranik offers is the Ovarian Cortex Biopsy. This procedure can help women with infertility issues who have poor ovarian reserves or are at risk of losing their ovarian function. It is a specialized procedure that involves removing a tiny fragment of ovarian tissue for use in fertility treatment.

Overview of Ovarian Cortex Biopsy

Ovarian Cortex Biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing a small piece of ovarian tissue containing immature eggs from the outer layer of the ovary. The procedure is usually done through laparoscopy under general anaesthesia.

Once the ovarian tissue is removed, it can be frozen for future use, or the immature eggs can be extracted and matured in the lab for IVF procedures.

The procedure is not only limited to women at risk of losing their ovarian function or with poor ovarian reserves; it can also be used as a potential treatment option for women whose fertility may be compromised due to medical treatments like cancer chemotherapy.

Eligibility Criteria for Ovarian Cortex Biopsy

This procedure is best suited for women with poor ovarian reserve or whose ovarian function is likely compromised due to cancer treatments.

Before undergoing the procedure, the patient must undergo a thorough evaluation to determine her eligibility.

Benefits of Ovarian Cortex Biopsy

Ovarian Cortex Biopsy offers several benefits, including:

  • Ovarian tissue freezing for future use
  • Improvement in the chances of achieving pregnancy using frozen ovarian tissue
  • Preservation of potential future fertility
  • Higher chances of becoming pregnant in patients with poor ovarian reserves
  • Reversing the impact of cancer treatments on fertility

Risks and Side-Effects

Ovarian Cortex Biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure with a low risk of complications. However, as with any surgery, there are inherent risks, such as bleeding, infection, or injury to internal organs.

After the procedure, the patient may experience mild discomfort, bloating, or cramping, which can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.
