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 other reproductive technologies or procedures.
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
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
Our urologists provide expert assistance to couples who are undergoing fertility treatments by obtaining sperm through normal ejaculation or other means.

Problems with sperm quality
Problems with ejaculation
