Program to air on CBS on Monday, April 19, 2010
San Francisco – April 16, 2010. Paul Turek, MD, a pioneer in men’s reproductive health, and founder of The Turek Clinic, will be a guest expert on the national hit television show, The Doctors. The program airs on Monday, April 19, 2010 on the CBS network.
Dr. Turek will discuss and demonstrate FNA sperm mapping, a technique he pioneered to locate sperm in the testes of infertile men. The technique “maps” or identifies small pockets of sperm in the testes that can be extracted for fertility procedures. He appears with a patient he recently treated for a condition known as azoospermia, or the absence of sperm in the ejaculate.
“I was delighted to have the opportunity through the powerful platform of national television to demonstrate this very important procedure that is helping couples conceive,” said Turek. “Patients everywhere need to be informed that there are sophisticated and effective ways to help men become fathers.”
