Male Reproductive Surgery

Introduction
  • Reproductive surgery is using surgery in the
    field of reproductive medicine. It can be used
    for contraception, e.g. in vasectomy, wherein
    the vasa deferentia of a man are severed, but is
    also used plentifully in assisted reproductive
    technology.
  • A reproductive surgeon is an obstetrician-gynecolo
    gist or urologist who specializes in reproductive
    surgery
  • In assisted reproductive technology
  • Reproductive surgery is used for treating
    e.g. fallopian tube obstruction and vas deferens
    obstruction, or reversing a vasectomy by
    a reverse vasectomy

  • Surgical sperm retrieval is an alternative means
    of semen collection, where other means are not
    possible, e.g. in posthumous sperm retrieval
  • Trends
  • Albeit an increase in overall use of assisted
    reproductive technology (ART), surgeries on the
    fallopian tubes and ovaries have decreased.
    Reproductive surgery in women has largely been
    complementary to other ART methods such as
    medication, except for in tubal infertility,
    where surgery remains the main treatment
