The UCSF Male Reproductive Health Center is a full-service facility that treats the entire spectrum of male infertility problems. We specialize in microsurgical procedures and medical treatments for conditions including blockages in the male reproductive system, mechanical problems with ejaculation and difficulties with low sperm production.
Other specialized treatments include electroejaculation, microscopic vasovasostomy and epididymovasostomy with sperm banking at surgery, and vasal, epididymal and testicular sperm retrieval.
In choosing a treatment plan, consideration should be given to the couple's long-term goals and financial constraints, as well as the results of the female partner's evaluation and the male factor findings. Anatomical problems can often be treated effectively with surgery. Medical therapy can be used to treat specific medical conditions or to enhance sperm production. If neither surgical nor medical therapy is appropriate, assisted reproductive technologies are available.
You'll need a referral from your primary care provider or specialist to make an appointment. Once you have the referral, please call the number below.
