Who may benefit from surgical sperm retrieval?

This procedure is offered to men where sperm production is present in the testes. A blood test to look at both male hormones and genetics can help predict which men might be producing sperm and which men probably are not. An ultrasound of the testes and scrotal area may also be performed. These tests help the doctor predict what percentage chance a man has that a surgical sperm retrieval procedure will find sperm that can be used to create a pregnancy.
