New York, NY (June 2009) - California Cryobank, a leader in reproductive tissue banking, announced today the opening of its first off-site collection center at Reproductive Medicine Associates (RMA) of New York, a full service fertility treatment center. The off-site collection center will provide fertility preservation services to patients in the New York metropolitan area.
Known worldwide for outstanding donor semen services, California Cryobank also provides fertility preservation services to men who are faced with a variety of fertility jeopardizing circumstances including: cancer treatments, vasectomies, or those in the military or other high-risk occupations.
Each year, nearly 70,000 young adults face the possibility of losing their fertility due to cancer and cancer-related treatments. Many are uninformed as to the risk to their fertility and their reproductive options. Through the Fertile Future preservation program, California Cryobank hopes to raise awareness within both the patient and medical communities. California Cryobank's Fertile Future campaign includes partnerships with several non-profit organizations for young adults affected by cancer, including: I'm Too Young For This!, Fertile Hope, and My Vision Foundation.
"It is a privilege to have RMA of New York as our first service provider," stated Cappy Rothman, MD, Co-Founder of California Cryobank. "Our goal is to provide the men of New York and their families a convenient and reliable option to preserve their fertility."
"Optimizing reproductive health starts by preserving fertility and not just treating infertility. We are proud to partner with California Cryobank in our continued efforts to provide fertility preservation options for both men and women," said Dr. Alan Copperman, Co-Director of RMA of New York.
