Sperm Cryopreservation gives men the option to freeze and store their sperm prior to being exposed to chemotherapy. Because the short term effects of chemotherapy on sperm are not well understood, we also offer this technique, in collaboration with the Institutional Review Board, to men who have recently been exposed to chemotherapy.
Testicular Tissue Freezing
Testicular Tissue Freezing is an experimental procedure where a young boy’s testicular tissue is retrieved and frozen. This technique is reserved for young male patients who are not yet producing mature sperm, with the ultimate goal that their tissue may be used in the future to restore fertility when experimental techniques emerge from the research pipeline.
Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)
Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) is a procedure where rare sperm are recovered from the testes of men who cannot produce sperm by ejaculation due to clinical infertility.
A procedure used to help keep a man fertile by preventing damage to the testicles during radiation therapy. A protective shield is placed over the scrotum (the external sac that contains the testicles) during radiation to the pelvic area.
