Male Reproductive Health Center
The UCSF Male Reproductive Health Center 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 low sperm production.
Other specialized treatments include electroejaculation and vasectomy reversal surgeries (microscopic vasovasostomy and epididymovasostomy) with sperm banking at surgery, as well as vasal, epididymal and testicular sperm retrieval.
In choosing a treatment plan, we consider the couple's long-term goals and financial constraints, as well as the results of both partners' medical evaluations. Anatomical problems can often be treated effectively with surgery. Medications can be used to treat specific conditions or to enhance sperm production. If neither surgical nor medical therapy is appropriate, assisted reproductive technologies are available.
Male Reproductive Lab
The Male Reproductive Laboratory offers a complete range of diagnostic tests for sperm disorders. The UCSF Cryobank is a full-service sperm-banking facility that serves as a resource for patients interested in sperm banking. In addition, a recently opened UCSF Donor Cryobank offers cryopreserved donor sperm for the convenient use of Bay Area residents.
It is the goal of the Male Reproductive Health Center to provide state-of-the-art, individualized care to infertile couples. Treatments are designed to work within the timeframes, desires and financial constraints of patients.
