Reproductive Surgery in Assisted Conception
To many patients and indeed health care professionals, IVF is the ultimate treatment for infertility. However in many cases IVF is not feasible and may not be indicated. IVF remains a largely inefficient procedure that often does not succeed in a achieving a pregnancy.
There remains a strong place for other fertility interventions, many of them surgical in nature. Surgical interventions can be used as a stand-alone fertility treatment or as an adjuvant treatment used in conjunction with other assisted conception treatments. Despite the continuing use of such techniques by reproductive surgeons, there remains a clear gap in the literature regarding resources to supplement formal training in the field or to provide a reference for established and aspiring practitioners.
