TESE (Testicular Sperm Extraction)

PATHWAY. Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) is a surgical sperm retrieval procedure used in fertility treatment for men who have no sperm in their ejaculate. TESE at the LIV Fertility Center is used for men with both obstructive and non-obstructive azoospermia.

tese Men face the issues of having no sperm in their ejaculate because either there is a blockage in the path between the site of sperm production (the testes) and ejaculation or because there is a partial or complete failure in sperm production in the testes.

TESE — Performing the Procedure

Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) 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. However, because the numbers of sperm that retrieved is often very low, it is necessary to combine TESE with Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).
