RESCUE. Microscopic or Microdissection Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) is a surgical procedure to rescue and retrieve sperm for men with non-obstructive azoospermia. Microdissection TESE improves sperm retrieval outcomes may allow retrieval of sperm in patients who were unsuccessful with standard TESE approaches.
The LIV Fertility Center offers Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE), which is a minor procedure carried out on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Sperm are retrieved from the testes through a small incision and are used for the fertilization of eggs in the laboratory. Careful coordination with the female partner’s reproductive endocrinologist is essential during the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) process.
What is Microscopic TESE?
While we do not offer Microscopic TESE, the process involves using an operating microscope to visualize blood vessels under the surface of the tunica albuginea — the outside layer of the testis. This allows for dissection to occur in bloodless regions of the testis. A large incision is made to optimize visualization without affecting blood supply to the testes. Dissections are made and sperm retrieval is completed.
