Infertility (Varicocele repair, microTESE)
Varicocele is the most common cause of male infertility affecting number, motility, morphology, and sperm fragmentation. It is often asymptomatic in young adolescents. It may negatively affect the size of the testicles and testosterone. The most severe form of infertility, azoospermia – the inability to find spermatozoa – affects about 1% of the general population, and more than 20% of men visit infertility clinics.
In the context of prevention but mainly of treatment, the Urologist-Andrologist is called to offer modern surgical solutions such as:
- Correction of clinical varicocele
- Surgical discovery and collection of oral tissue using a microTESE microscope.
Today, these operations can and should be performed with the help of Microsurgery and advanced surgical microscopes that maximize the special skills required by the, specialized in Microsurgery, urologist.
