Men who are attempting to conceive receive diagnostic assessment with semen evaluation in a state-of-the-art laboratory within the practice and with genetic, hormonal testing, when needed. Specialty laboratories provide the latest diagnostic technologies related to male and female infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss.
For male infertility, recent advances in sperm function testing are often more helpful in directing treatment than a traditional semen analysis. We collaborate with the area’s best urologic male-fertility specialists.
NewLIFE provides sperm retrieval techniques (PESE, TESA, TESE) for men with prior vasectomy and severely low sperm production. Diagnostic testing will help determine if some of these approaches will be successful. Men considering vasectomy reversal or direct sperm retrieval (without vas reversal) should consult with an experienced urologist or fertility specialist. This effort will help select the best option for a couple’s unique circumstances. The length of time since vasectomy is an important factor.
When sperm are accessible in infertile men, fertilization is assisted in vitro with an impressively high success rate. The technique called, IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) has dramatically improved outcomes for these couples. This technology at NewLIFE is provided by a world-leader in sperm physiology and reproduction.
When sperm is obtained for future reproduction such as for men planning vasectomy or chemotherapy, NewLIFE offers cryopreservation on site and long-term storage arrangements through its affiliation with ReproTech, LLC (www.reprotech.com).
