Surgical Sperm Retrieval

Surgical Sperm Retrieval

Surgical Sperm Retrieval is offered to couple with Azoospermia (no sperms in the semen).

  • PESA-(Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration) is done in case of blocked ducts leading to azoospermia. Here, under local anesthesia, a needle is inserted in the duct and the sperms are aspirated.
  • TESE-(Testicular Sperm Extraction) is done in case of non-obstructive azoospermia. Under local/short general anesthesia, sperms are obtained by biopsy from testes directly.
  • TESA-(Testicular Sperm Aspiration) is done in case of non-obstructive azoospermia. Under local/short general anesthesia, sperms are obtained from the testes by relatively less invasive procedure.
The sperms thus retrieved are used for ICSI.
