What many couples don’t realize is that infertility affects men as often as women. With couples facing a diagnosis of male factor infertility, there has been an increasing demand for expanded male fertility services in our practice.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) April 10, 2018
With male factor infertility accounting for nearly 40 to 50 percent of all infertility cases, Shady Grove Fertility has established a Center for Male Fertility that offers a range of male services including basic evaluation and testing to state-of-the-art microsurgical techniques including varicocele repair, vasectomy reversal, and vasectomy, as well as percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA) and testicular sperm extraction (TESE) for in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Led by Shady Grove Fertility’s in-house board certified reproductive urologists, Paul Shin, M.D., and Cori Tanrikut, M.D., our physicians provide a collaborative approach to care working closely with a patient’s reproductive endocrinologist to optimize treatment outcomes. This integrated care model, unique to Shady Grove Fertility, was designed to provide comprehensive male and female infertility services to ensure continuity of care and communication for both partners before, during, and after treatment.
“What many couples don’t realize is that infertility affects men as often as women. With couples facing a diagnosis of male factor infertility, there has been an increasing demand for expanded male fertility services in our practice,” says Dr. Shin.
“The addition of two in-house urologists in the practice’s Washington and Baltimore regions will provide patients with more convenient access to a suite of male infertility services that allows both partners to be tested and treated simultaneously,” adds Shin.
Another advantage to the Center for Male Fertility at SGF is that patients outside of the practice may be referred directly to Dr. Shin or Dr. Tanrikut for diagnostic testing, evaluation, and/or treatment for male infertility and vasectomy. The advantage to having testing done at a fertility center is the test reliability. SGF’s Andrology Center performs over 20,000 semen analyses and sperm washings every year with experienced andrologists reviewing each sample for the highest reliability. With 29 locations throughout Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, and Georgia, patients of SGF now have more convenient access to these specialized services.
