Surgical Sperm Recovery is a minor surgical procedure performed as a day care surgery where the sperms of male partner with very poor sperm counts are collected for IVF fertilization. There are different procedures carried according to the patient’s requirement.
TESA (Testicular Sperm Extraction)

It is mainly suitable in patients with obstruction in their spermatic duct, obstructive azoospermia, due to infections, trauma, post vasectomy (where surgical reversal has failed) and even with low sperm production.
PESA (Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration)

MESA(Microscopic Epididymal Sperm Aspiration)
