Book Editor


This book was a labour of love for over a year. As a pragmatic and practical person, I like to ask and have the answers to practical problems in my practice.


This book inlcudes chapters based on the experience of numerous eminent and successful practitioners of assisted reproductive tehcnologies at the top of their game. It is a must have for those training in the art.
