Infertility

Why choose HackensackUMC Urology?

The experienced urologists at Hackensack University Medical Center offer couples struggling with infertility the expert treatment they need to significantly increase their chances of getting pregnant.

Our fellowship-trained urologists work closely with reproductive endocrinologists to help couples determine the cause of their infertility.

Once a diagnosis of male infertility is made, our team provides access to the most advanced treatment procedures available. Our success rate is noteworthy, and while not all infertility can be explained or corrected, you can be assured that our urologists are among the most capable in the region to help you and your partner realize your dream of having a child.

HackensackUMC Men's Urology - Infertility

Causes of Male Infertility

Although some cases of male infertility are unexplained, most cases are caused by low sperm count. There are many factors that can contribute to a low sperm count, including:

  • Problems with sperm production
  • Problems with sperm quality
  • Problems with ejaculation
  • Enlarged veins in the scrotum, called a varicocele
  • Health problems, such as diabetes or infections
  • Anatomical problems
  • Hormonal imbalances

Cutting Edge Techniques

Our urologists provide expert infertility treatment using the latest, most advanced techniques, including noninvasive and minimally invasive methods.

Male Infertility Diagnosis and Treatment

Our urologists will conduct a thorough exam using the latest tools and techniques to help determine the cause of your infertility. Your exam will include a semen analysis to measure your sperm count and assess the quality of your sperm. You may also be asked to answer health questions or provide blood and urine samples.

Our specialists will develop a customized treatment plan once they determine the cause of your infertility. Depending on your diagnosis, our urologists may recommend surgery, medication or assisted reproductive technology (ART) such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Surgery
Our specialists offer the safest and most up-to-date procedures to treat male infertility, including noninvasive and minimally invasive surgical options. Our urologists are specially trained in microsurgery and can correct a range of problems, including:

  • Varicocele, which is an enlargement of veins within your scrotum that can affect sperm production and quality
  • Obstructed vas deferens, which prevents sperm from being ejaculated properly
  • Nonobstructive azoospermia, which is a lack of sperm production in the ejaculate

We also perform:

  • Vasectomy reversal, which can reconnect the tubes (vas deferens) that were cut during the vasectomy
  • Sperm retrieval, which involves taking sperm from the reproductive tract for use in IVF

Medication
Sometimes male infertility can be caused by infection, problems with sexual intercourse or hormone imbalances. Our urology specialists can prescribe medications to treat male infertility, including:

  • Antibiotics, if an infection is present
  • Hormone therapy, if hormone levels are too low or too high
  • Medications to treat erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation

ART (IUI or IVF)
Our urologists provide expert assistance to couples who are undergoing IUI or IVF by obtaining sperm through normal ejaculation, surgical extraction or from a sperm donor.
