Male Fertility Doctor Serving Santa Rosa

If your journey toward becoming a father has been filled with obstacles, you can give yourself the best possible chance to expand your family by seeking care from a leading male infertility specialist. The Turek Clinic, led by esteemed urologist and master-micro surgeon Dr. Paul Turek, has helped many men to solve their fertility problems with advanced techniques and knowledgeable care, making their dreams of parenthood a reality.

Conditions Treated

  • Azoospermia: Men who have no viable sperm in their ejaculate have a condition called azoospermia. Although this is the leading cause of male infertility, this obstacle can often be overcome with treatment.
  • Oligospermia: Low sperm count, also known as oligospermia, describes men who have a small amount of viable sperm in their ejaculate. This makes a natural pregnancy less likely, though possible with help from a fertility expert.
  • Cryptozoospermia: Men with cryptozoospermia may initially show no viable sperm in their semen, but have a trace amount that can be used to fertilize an egg.
  • Varicocele: Enlarged varicocele (similar to varicose veins) can decrease the quality and quantity of sperm released in a man’s ejaculate. About one-third of the men Dr. Turek treats for fertility problems have this issue, which often develops in a man’s teenage years.

Expert Fertility Solutions at The Turek Clinic

Dr. Turek is one of the foremost experts in the field of male infertility, ranking in the top 1-2% in his specialty. He is arguably best known for his signature Sperm Mapping technique, which helps to find where viable “hidden” sperm is that can be used to fertilize an egg. This guided approach often allows for a less invasive procedure to retrieve the sperm. Sperm Mapping is one of many treatments that Dr. Turek offers that enables him to have a much higher success rate than other male  fertility centers.

Treatments Available at the Turek Clinic

  • Semen Analysis: This test can determine the sperm count in a man’s semen sample, which gives Dr. Turek an understanding of whether a natural pregnancy is likely or if other steps should be taken to improve the odds of success.
  • Sperm Mapping: This guided process allows Dr. Turek to identify where hidden, viable sperm is located inside the testicles so that it can be safely extracted and used with a procedure like IVF or ICSI.
  • Microsurgical Reconstruction: This procedure removes obstructions in the reproductive organs so that the man’s sperm is included in his ejaculated semen.
  • Sperm Retrieval: This process removes sperm from the testicle of a man with azoospermia so that this hidden sperm can be used to fertilize an egg.
  • Testicular Biopsy: A biopsy removes a tiny amount of tissue from the testicle, which can be examined to help determine potential causes of male infertility.
  • Varicocele Repair: Treating a varicocele can help to improve the functionality of the testicle and boost testosterone production so that men release more sperm in their semen. It can also limit discomfort caused by this problem.
  • Ejaculatory Duct Resection: By opening clogged ejaculatory ducts, a man releases more sperm. TURED (transurethral resection of the ejaculatory ducts) can help about 30% of men to become fathers without the need for IVF.
  • Reverse Vasectomy: Men who previously had a vasectomy and now would like to have a baby can reconnect their vas deferens so that sperm re-enters their ejaculate. Dr. Turek can also reperform a reversal for men whose past reversal was unsuccessfully performed by another doctor.

Sexual Health Services Available

  • Erectile and Ejaculatory Disorders: Many men have issues maintaining an erection or ejaculating during sex, which becomes an impediment to achieving a pregnancy.
  • Loss of Testicle: Men who have lost a testicle can boost their confidence with a testicle implant.
  • Peyronie’s Disease: Scar tissue on the penis can cause pain during an erection or give the penis a curved shape, which inevitably makes sex more difficult.
  • Low Testosterone: Men who have diminished energy, mood, and sex drive due to low testosterone can give themselves a boost with hormone replacement therapy.

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.
