Fertility Treatments For Men

Our reproductive endocrinologists will talk with you about which of these methods could help preserve your fertility.

Sperm Banking

  • man reading

    Simple and proven technique
  • Freezes sperm for future use
  • New technologies need fewer sperm to achieve pregnancy
  • Banking is useful even if sperm count is low or there is only time for one deposit
  • Sperm can be kept frozen indefinitely

Testicular Tissue Freezing

  • For some men who cannot bank sperm
  • Sperm-bearing tissue removed and frozen for future use
  • Method is considered experimental for boys before puberty
  • Our reproductive urologists assist in this method

Radiation Shielding

  • Special shields placed over one or both testicles reduce the risk of damage to fertility during radiation treatment
