Men's Health & Infertility
At St. Peter's, we also focus on advancing men's health issues by offering the latest in diagnostic technology for men suffering from prostate and male genital disorders, as well as infertility.
We are dedicated to providing our patients with the most prompt and individualized care. Our physicians work closely with patients to develop a treatment plan to meet the patient's needs. Treatment options include: medical management, laser therapy and microsurgery.
Testing for male genital/health disorders include the following:
For those couples that have been unsuccessful conceiving, the male will undergo urologic evaluation. This will include complete history and physical examination, a detailed fertility questionnaire, hormonal evaluation and semen analysis. The results of this evaluation and any proposed therapy will be discussed with both patient and spouse and communicated to the spouse's treating gynecologist.
Latest surgical techniques offered at St. Peter's Hospital include: microscopic varicocelectomy; microscopic vasectomy reversal and reconstruction; and, "sperm harvesting," utilizing microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA) and testes biopsy.
St. Peter's also offers a range of diagnostic and medical advancements in the management of erectile dysfunction. Treatment options include life style changes, medications and surgery.
