In recent years, technological and surgical advances have dramatically improved the treatment options and success rate for couples with severe male factor infertility. Infertility is a common problem and is one of the most difficult experiences a couple can face. Although the causes of infertility vary, more than 40% of all infertility cases may be attributed to an exclusive or contributing male factor. Therefore, it is recommended that you and your doctor include the male in the reproductive evaluation and workup for infertility. An infertility evaluation should be performed if a couple has not achieved conception after one year of unprotected intercourse. An evaluation should be performed earlier if male or female infertility risk factors exist, if the female is over 35 years of age, and also if the couple simply questions the man’s fertility potential. Male infertility can result from a variety of conditions. The purpose of the evaluation of the male is to identify conditions contributing to infertility that are either potentially reversible, irreversible but suited to assisted reproductive techniques, or potentially life- or health-threatening.
Current diagnostic and advanced treatment modalities have significantly improved prognosis and created a new era in the treatment of male-factor infertility. The Center for Male Reproductive Health at RMA of New York, led by director Dr. Natan Bar-Chama, is dedicated exclusively to providing the most current and innovative therapies for male reproductive medicine and microsurgical reconstruction for the treatment of male infertility.
