Is a Surgical Procedure for Male Infertility Right for You?

If you’re contemplating surgery, chances are you’ve begun researching different procedures or providers online with queries like “surgery for infertility near me” or “urology men’s health clinic near me.” You may be at a point where other treatment options have not been effective. A few questions that you can ask yourself include the following:

  • How much do you want to have children, and how much of an impact does male infertility have on it?
  • Is male infertility posing a threat to your relationship?
  • Are you feeling insecure in your relationship because of male infertility and that you are not capable of giving your partner a child?

If the answer to any of the above questions was a yes, then it is time for you to have a meeting with your urologist about treatment options.

Effective Surgical Treatments for Male Infertility in Atlanta

There are numerous surgical treatments available when it comes to male infertility. These treatment options include the following:

Varicocelectomy

A varicocelectomy is an outpatient surgery used for repairing dilated varicoceles or scrotal veins. Repairing these dilated veins can produce a major improvement in your fertility. Repairing these veins is believed to improve the concentration, structure and movement of the sperm inside your body.

Epididymovasostomy

This microsurgical procedure is often performed in the case of a blockage within the epididymis. Obstructions within the epididymis may be present because of previous injury or infections.

Vasectomy Reversal

One previously unmentioned cause of male infertility is the voluntary choice to undergo a vasectomy. Some men change their minds because of major life changes such as remarriage or the loss of a child. Vasectomy reversal reconnects the two ends of your vas deferens to provide a safe passage for sperm to go through during ejaculation. An epididymovasostomy may also be needed to repair the blockages caused by the process of vasectomy.
