Patient Testing

Based on your evaluation, your specialist may recommend any of the following tests:

  • Semen Analysis - provides information about sperm, measuring sperm numbers, movement and shape
  • Testicular Biopsy - testicular tissue is tested for the presence of sperm
  • Hysterosalpingogram - indicates the condition of the uterine cavity and fallopian tubes
  • Sonohysterography - instillation of water into the uterus under ultrasound guidance to assess for uterine abnormalities
  • Laparoscopy - a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows the doctor to view and evaluate the outside of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and pelvic cavity

Fertility Treatment

After your tests are evaluated, your specialist may advise one of the following fertility procedures:

  • Drug therapy - drugs are sometimes prescribed to stimulate egg production or to release the egg during ovulation
  • Artificial insemination - sperm is introduced into the cervix or uterus for conception
  • In vitro fertilization - a method of assisted reproduction that involves fertilization outside the body and transfer of a dividing embryo into the uterus
  • Donor program- when donor eggs or sperm are required, we coordinate the process and perform the procedures
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) - a single sperm is injected directly into the egg during in vitro fertilization
  • Sperm and embryo cryopreservation - under certain conditions (including cancer), sperm and embryos can be frozen for future use
  • Laparoscopic and conventional surgical correction of infertility
  • Treatment of male factor infertility - numerous options are available if male factor infertility is present; Urology consultation, testicular biopsy, intrauterine insemination ICSI and donor sperm.
