Men's Infertility

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 also may be asked to answer health questions or provide blood and urine samples. Reasons for infertility may include:

  • 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

Male Infertility Treatment

Depending on your diagnosis, our urologists will develop a customized treatment plan. We may recommend surgery, medication or other reproductive technologies or procedures.

Surgery
We 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 perform:

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

Medication
Male infertility may 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
