Testicular Pain & Male Infertility

This program provides  services for patients with male infertility and chronic testicular or groin pain. Our mission is to provide the highest level of care and the most innovative new treatment options for these conditions.

Male Infertility & Vasectomy Reversal

We are one of the premier Male Infertility Centers to incorporate the daVinci Si High Definition Robotic Surgical System. The use of the daVinci Si with an additional instrument arm and high definition camera allows for improved surgical efficiency. On July 25th, 2007, Dr.Parekattil performed the first human bilateral robotic vasoepididymostomy – a complex robotic vasectomy reversal.

We offer a full array of treatment options for male infertility:

  • Robotic Vasectomy Reversal
    • Robotic Vasosvasostomy
    • Robotic Vasoepididymostomy
  • Robotic TESE (Testicular Sperm Extraction)
  • Robotic Varicocelectomy
  • PESA (Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration)
  • MESA (Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Extraction)
  • Testis Biopsy
  • Sperm Cryopreservation
  • Electroejaculation – Spinal Cord Injury
  • Vibratory Ejaculation – Spinal Cord Injury
  • Complete Sperm Analysis
  • Retrograde Ejaculation Treatment

Chronic Groin and/or Testicular Pain

We have also developed a comprehensive multi-disciplinary clinic that specializes in the evaluation and treatment of chronic groin and/or testicular pain. This clinic incorporates elements of physical therapy, pain managment and urology. The goal is to offer comprehensive patient care and deliver innovation treatment options for patients with chronic testicular and/or groin pain.

In October 2008, Dr.Parekattil performed the first successful robotic assisted microsurgical neurolysis of the spermatic cord for the treatment of this condition.

We offer the following testicular / groin / inguinal pain procedures:

  • Mapped groin & inguinal spermatic cord blocks
  • Targeted Robotic Microsurgical Neurolysis/Denervation of the spermatic cord
    • Sub-inguinal & abdominal approaches
  • Botox Blocks
  • Micro-Cryo Ablation of nerve fibers

We strive to deliver world class care and our team is dedicated to providing you with information about male infertility so that you can make the right choices.
