Male Fertility Doctor Serving Palo Alto

Male Fertility Doctor Serving Palo Alto

About one in every 10 men has at least one significant fertility issue, which can stand in the way of becoming a father. However, many male fertility issues can now be overcome thanks to cutting-edge technologies. At the Turek Clinic, our experts can methodically determine the causes of your fertility problems and then develop a treatment plan that mitigates these factors, providing hope where hope was lost.

Fertility Issues for Palo Alto Men

  • Azoospermia: Men without a single sperm in their ejaculate have azoospermia. This may be caused by a blockage (obstructive azoospermia) or some other problem with sperm production (non-obstructive azoospermia).
  • Oligospermia: Also known as low sperm count, this diagnosis indicates that a man has fewer than 15 million sperm in one milliliter of ejaculate. Although natural conception is still possible, fertility assistance is a good idea and sometimes the only option for couples who want to get pregnant.
  • Cryptozoospermia: This diagnosis is given to men who were previously deemed to have azoospermia only to later turn up a small amount of sperm in their semen.
  • Varicocele: About one-third of Dr. Turek’s patients have varicoceles, which are enlarged veins inside the scrotum (similar to varicose veins), which have been known to make natural conception more difficult.

Our Stellar Success Rate

Male Fertility Doctor Serving Palo Alto

Dr. Paul Turek is known worldwide as a leading male fertility specialist, ranked in the top 1-2% of the field. Thousands of men who thought they would be unable to have biological children after seeing other doctors are now fathers thanks to treatment from Dr. Turek. One of his most popular treatments is Sperm Mapping, which can help find viable sperm inside the testicles of men who release no sperm in their ejaculate. This sperm can then be used in conjunction with an artificial reproductive procedure like IVF or ICSI.

Fertility Solutions Available at the Turek Clinic

  • Semen Analysis: This is an early sperm test that analyzes the shape, movement, and number of sperm in a man’s semen sample so that Dr. Turek can determine if natural fertilization is a reasonable possibility.
  • Sperm Mapping: Men with non-obstructive azoospermia may still have viable sperm trapped in their reproductive tract. By locating this sperm, it can be used with a procedure like IVF or ICSI.
  • Microsurgical Reconstruction: Intricate surgeries can help to reconstruct the male reproductive tract so that sperm freely move to the urethra where they can be released for natural egg fertilization.
  • Sperm Retrieval: Sperm that have been located via a process like Sperm Mapping can be harvested and used with an artificial reproductive procedure like IVF, ICSI, or IUI.
  • Testicular Biopsy: If other tests do not provide enough information, Dr. Turek can remove a small amount of testicular tissue to examine under a microscope.
  • Varicocele Repair: This procedure addresses enlarged veins in the scrotum to help lower the temperature of the testicles and boost sperm production.
  • Ejaculatory Duct Resection: Transurethral resection of the ejaculatory ducts (TURED) can minimize blockages in the ejaculatory ducts to better ensure that semen with sperm is ejaculated during intercourse. 
  • Vasectomy Reversal: This procedure undoes a previous vasectomy by reconnecting the tubes that carry sperm (the vas deferens) so that sperm can be released with ejaculate again. Men whose previous vasectomy reversals have failed, have found success at The Turek Clinic.

Sexual Health Services

  • Erectile and Ejaculatory Disorder: Two of the most common fertility issues are ED (erectile dysfunction) and EDO (ejaculatory duct obstruction). The former can often be improved with medication and the latter is treatable with microsurgery.
  • Testicle Loss: Dr. Turek recommends testicle implants to men who feel less confident during sexual activity due to this condition.
  • Peyronie’s Disease: This disease causes fibrous scar tissue to form inside the penis, which may cause the penis to develop an unusual bend or curve when erect. Unfortunately, this can make sex quite painful, in turn making natural fertilization harder to achieve.
  • Low Testosterone (hypogonadism): Men’s testosterone levels naturally decline with age, which can have a negative impact on mood, sex drive, and muscle strength. Hormone replacement therapy can help revitalize a man and even boost his chances of conceiving a child.

Painless, Nitrous Oxide Vasectomy

The vas deferens, which are the tubes that transport sperm from the testicles to the urethra, are snipped or sealed in a vasectomy. This prevents sperm from being released with ejaculate during sexual intercourse, effectively making the man sterile. Dr. Turek has perfected the no-scalpel option using nitrous oxide to prevent pain and anxiety.
