Male Infertility Surgery Webcast: Minimally Invasive Varicocele Surgery

February 25, 2009 at 2:00 pm Leave a comment

There are numerous causes for male infertility, such as varicoceles, hormonal dysfunction, physical trauma, obstructions, diseases (sexually transmitted diseases, cancer, anemia) and side effects from certain drugs.

Varicoceles are the most common cause of male infertility. Varicoceles are abnormal and/or enlarged veins that surround the testicles, and are similar to varicose veins in the leg. Normally the blood drains from the testicle upwards into the abdominal cavity. When patients have varicoceles, the blood does not drain normally and flows back towards the testicles, keeping them at a higher than normal temperature.

Varicoceles are present in nearly 15% of all men, and up to 40% of men visiting infertility clinics. However, varicoceles do not always lead to fertility problems, nor do all require treatment. Varicoceles are primarily diagnosed by a physical exam or by ultrasound, and may be treated surgically, laparoscopically or percutaneously (venographic embolization).

Harris M. Nagler, MD, Chairman of the Sol and Margaret Berger Department of Urology at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, asp and Professor of Urology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, will be performing today’s surgery to correct a varicocele condition. Dr. Nagler is a nationally renowned expert on male infertility, with vast experience diagnosing and treating varicocele conditions, utilizing a microscopic surgical technique which results in high success rates with minimal complications. Dr. Nagler is also well known for his high level of expertise in restoring fertility with vasectomy reversal. Dr. Nagler is on the board of the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction, is President-elect of the New York Section of the American Urological Association and has been routinely named as one of New York Magazine’s Best Doctors.
