108. Dr. Elyce Cardonick (Obstetrician specializing in Cancer & Pregnancy)

On today’s episode, I am speaking with Dr. Elyce Cardonick. Dr. Cardonick is a high-risk obstetrician at Cooper University Health Care and professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. She specializes in the care of women who during their pregnancy receive a diagnosis of cancer. Cancer in pregnancy is rare, occurring approximately once per 1,000 pregnancies annually and Dr. Cardonick’s work has really changed our knowledge of how we treat patients who have cancer and are pregnant. We speak about the safety of cancer treatment during pregnancy, optimal timing of treatment and delivery, impact on long-term outcomes on both mother and child, pregnancy after cancer, fertility preservation and much more. This is truly a comprehensive conversation about topics related to cancer and pregnancy from a medical standpoint.
