Infertility has become very common these days, and every other couple seeks treatment for their infertility. Medical treatment may help treat conditions related to hormonal imbalance or organ dysfunction to a certain extent. Surgery can be performed to repair the damaged or blocked fallopian tubes, treat endometriosis, remove fibroids or polyps in the uterus, or treat the swollen veins in the scrotum. Surgeries can also be performed to detect the underlying cause of infertility.
Some of these conditions can be treated by procedures like laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. Other techniques used to treat infertility include in-vitro-fertilization, IUI, fallopian tube surgery, laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis and submucosal fibroids, laparoscopic ovarian drilling, testicular biopsy, testicular sperm aspiration, percutaneous sperm aspiration, vasectomy reversal, etc.
Percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA) and testicular sperm aspiration (TESA) are two simple procedures for retrieving sperms surgically. These procedures are usually done before intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), a specialised invitro fertilisation technique which involves injection of a single sperm…Explore More

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an effective and common type of assisted reproductive technology that helps a woman to achieve pregnancy. It involves fertilization of the egg in a laboratory and implanting it inside the woman’s uterus. IVF can be…Explore More
Microscopic testicular sperm extraction (Micro TESE) is a surgical procedure, which involves retrieval of sperms from the testicles. This procedure is recommended for men who are unable to release or produce healthy sperms naturally. The main aim of this procedure…Explore More
