Male Fertility Doctor Serving the OC

Male Fertility Doctor Serving Orange County

If you and your partner have been trying to conceive a child but haven’t been successful, you might need assistance from a men’s fertility specialist to turn your goal into reality. About 50% of infertility cases are attributed to some male factors, and many of these are not diagnosed at traditional IVF clinics. The Turek Clinic, a leading male fertility center provides individualized treatment plans to help couples navigate their journey to conception. Dr. Paul Turek designs custom solutions to remove obstacles, bringing renewed hope to those struggling to conceive.

Common Male Fertility Issues in the OC

Azoospermia: Men with no sperm in their semen samples have azoospermia. This condition affects up to 5% of infertile men and falls into two categories: obstructive azoospermia (caused by a blockage) and non-obstructive azoospermia. Both can significantly impair a man’s fertility.

Oligospermia: A sperm count below 15 million per milliliter indicates oligospermia, which makes pregnancy challenging. While a low sperm count does not necessarily prevent conception, it does make natural fertilization less likely, thus warranting a visit to a fertility specialist.

Cryptozoospermia: This condition describes men initially diagnosed with azoospermia who later show trace amounts of motile sperm in their semen. This subtle presence can still play a role in fertility treatments, although further evaluation and treatment are often necessary.

Varicocele: Enlarged veins in the scrotum can cause varicoceles, which disrupt blood flow and elevate testicular temperatures, impairing sperm production and function. This condition can develop in adolescence and contribute to both discomfort and fertility issues later in life.

Solutions for Male Fertility Issues

Male Fertility Doctor Serving Orange County

Dr. Turek is a renowned urologist with a distinguished track record of advancing male fertility treatments. One of his notable achievements is the development of the Sperm Mapping procedure, which has helped thousands of men with non-obstructive azoospermia find “hidden” sperm in their reproductive tracts. This technique provides a clear guide to sperm extraction, which increases the chances of successful fertilization and may allow for a less invasive form of sperm retrieval.

Fertility Treatments Offered at The Turek Clinic

  • Semen Analysis: This diagnostic test measures important factors such as sperm shape, movement, and total count. It gives Dr. Turek an initial understanding of how likely natural fertilization is and helps guide subsequent treatment plans.
  • Sperm Mapping: Also known as FNA mapping this technique locates hidden sperm in the testicles of men with azoospermia, which can then be used for IVF or ICSI treatments.
  • Microsurgical Reconstruction: By modifying and reconstructing the male reproductive tract, Dr. Turek helps increase the odds of natural fertilization, offering a less invasive solution for many patients.
  • Sperm Retrieval: Guided by sperm mapping Dr. Turek’s Sperm Retrieval procedures succeed 99% of the time. This advanced method provides essential sperm for fertility treatments such as IVF, ICSI, and IUI, reducing complications and improving success rates.
  • Testicular Biopsy: A small tissue sample is taken from the testicle, allowing for a more thorough diagnosis of fertility issues when examined under a microscope. This detailed analysis can uncover underlying problems and guide appropriate treatments.
  • Varicocele Repair: To address the problems caused by varicoceles, Dr. Turek performs a surgery that repairs the enlarged veins, improving sperm count and fertility potential for many men.
  • Ejaculatory Duct Resection: The TURED procedure, a minimally invasive method, unblocks ejaculatory ducts, allowing sperm to mix with semen and be present in the ejaculate. This can significantly improve fertility outcomes for some men.
  • Vasectomy Reversal: Dr. Turek specializes in reconnecting the vas deferens for men who wish to have children after a vasectomy. He has extensive experience in reversing previous failed procedures performed by other doctors, offering a chance for renewed fertility.

Sexual Health Services

  • Erectile and Ejaculatory Disorder: Medication and other modifications can help men overcome erectile dysfunction and resume sexual activity. Men with EDO (ejaculatory duct obstruction) have a blockage that prevents sperm from mixing with semen, which can be addressed through medical intervention.
  • Testicle Loss: Dr. Turek has pioneered the use of testicular implants for men who have lost one or more testicles, providing a viable solution to restore confidence and balance.
  • Peyronie’s Disease: This condition causes fibrous scar tissue to form inside the penis, making erections and sexual intercourse uncomfortable or painful. Treatments can alleviate these symptoms and improve sexual health.
  • Low Testosterone: Men with low testosterone (hypogonadism) can benefit from hormone replacement therapy in various forms, boosting testosterone levels to improve overall health and well-being.

Painless Nitrous Oxide Vasectomy

A vasectomy involves cutting or sealing the vas deferens, the tubes that transport sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This prevents sperm from being released during intercourse, effectively making the man sterile. Dr. Turek offers a no-scalpel vasectomy option using nitrous oxide to minimize pain and anxiety, thus making the procedure quick and stress-free.
