James Goldfarb, MD, MBA, is the Director of Fertility Services and In Vitro Fertilization at University Hospitals of Cleveland. He is also a Clinical Professor of Reproductive Biology at the Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. Since the 80's, Dr. Goldfarb has been at the forefront of third party reproduction. His infertility program was responsible for the first in-vitro fertilization birth in Ohio in 1983 and the world's first in-vitro fertilization/surrogate birth in 1986. He is immediate past president of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) and, through his association with SART and his active clinical practice, he has been very involved with recent issues regarding all aspects of third party reproduction.
The first IVF conceived birth in 1978 resulted in a significant growth of third party reproductive options which continue to raise ethical, legal, and psychological questions. Third party reproduction procedures can involve as many as five people: sperm donor, egg donor, gestational carrier, and intended parents. Third-Party Reproduction: A Comprehensive Guide utilizes experts in the field to address the medical, psychological, ethical and legal aspects of sperm donation, egg donation, embryo donation, and the use of gestational carriers. In addition, there are chapters on the medical and ethical aspects of posthumous reproduction, religious aspects of third party reproduction, and how to avoid pitfalls of third party reproduction. Aimed at physicians, trainees, psychologists, nurses, and social workers whose practices may include patients considering third party reproduction, the intent of this book is to provide a comprehensive and practical overview of the many aspects of third party reproduction to help all those involved to better understand them. Patients considering third party reproduction may also find value in this book.
