Is the MESA Procedure the Right Choice for You?

If infertility procedures such as IVF are part of your plan to start a family, then your vasectomy reversal surgeon may recommend MESA. During the MESA procedure, sperm is removed from the epididymis to be used during IVF. The procedure has a reliable track record of success and is unlikely to cause damage to adjacent structures in the reproductive system.

MESA stands for Microscopic Epididymal Sperm Aspiration. During this procedure, Dr. Green using an operating microscope to locate the epididymal tubules and aspirate sperm. The use of the microscope makes the procedure very precise and reduces the risk of contamination from blood and other bodily fluids. This procedure can be performed using a combination of local anesthesia and a sedative, general anesthesia, or a spinal block.
