• Understanding Vasectomy Reversal

    A small number of men opt to have vasectomies reversed. The process involves opening up the scrotum, removing the severed ends of the vas tubes, and stitching them back together. The length of time between a vasectomy and reversal will affect the success chances of the latter. The older the man, the less likely he’ll be able to produce sperm. If it doesn’t work, in vitro fertilization is another option. The video talks more about vasectomy reversal.

  • What is the TESE Procedure?

    If you produce ejaculate without sperm, your doctor may recommend sperm retrieval in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for reasonable pregnancy rates. Sperm can be retrieved from the reproductive tract by various approaches, including testicular sperm extraction (TESE). The TESE procedure is used to diagnose the cause of a man’s azoospermia (absence of sperm in the ejaculate fluid) and obtain sufficient tissue for sperm extraction. TESE involves one or multiple microscopic incisions in the testicles. For the best success rate, consult with a male infertility and vasectomy reversal surgeon that utilizes the latest microsurgical technologies and techniques.

    TESE is just one of the many sperm retrieval procedures performed by Dr. Joshua Green and the Center for Vasectomy Reversal and Male Infertility in Sarasota. The sperm retrieval process typically varies from a few minutes to a couple of hours, depending on the technique or procedure being performed by your male infertility surgeon.

  • How is a Vasectomy Reversal Completed?

    Vasectomy reversal aims to reconnect or unblock the vas deferens, tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the reproductive tract. First, your vasectomy reversal surgeon will make a tiny incision in the scrotum, usually where your original vasectomy was performed. The snipped ends of the vas deferens will be inspected and the scar tissue removed. The vas deferens will then be joined together using microsurgical stitching. Watch this short animated video to see how the typical vasectomy reversal surgery is completed.
