Men who are struggling with male infertility will discover helpful treatment options at our Dallas urology office
Many people assume that infertility is a woman’s problem, but the truth is that 40 percent of fertility problems can be attributed to male infertility. The good news is that our Dallas urologists provide up-to-date testing and treatment for infertility that can help men create a family.
We investigate the many causes of male infertility
There are many factors that can cause male infertility. For proper treatment options you need a doctor that has the experience and knowledge to identify the root cause of the problem. Causes of male infertility may include varicocele, medication side effects, or a hormonal imbalance. We will investigate environmental and genetic factors as well. Structural problems like genital tract obstruction, retrograde ejaculation or a varicocele may also cause male infertility.
Our Dallas urologists and staff provide the most current testing methods available to diagnose male infertility. We begin by taking a complete medical history from the patient, followed by a physical examination. We willalso arrange for patients to get a semen analysis adn often some bloodwork. In select situations, we may recommend a trans-rectal ultrasound or testicular biopsy to obtain more information about a patient.
Our Dallas urologists offer non-surgical, surgical and micro-surgical treatment
The treatments we recommend for male infertility will depend on the cause of the problem. Some male infertility problems, like oligospermia, can be treated with medication used to improve hormone levels. Other problems like varicoceles may require surgery. If surgical treatment is needed our Dallas urologists can usually perform outpatient microsurgery to make the repair.
Sperm extraction makes it possible to obtain sperm for IVF procedures
If we determine that you do not have sperm in your semen or that you are unable to ejaculate, our Dallas urologists may recommend a sperm extraction procedure. Sperm extraction procedures allow couples to achieve pregnancy by obtaining sperm to be used with IVF (In-vitro Fertilization)
