Testicular biopsy for infertility

A testicular biopsy for infertility is indicated when it is not known if the testicles produce sperm.

How Is the Surgery Performed?

The surgery is performed under local, spinal, or general anesthesia.
During the procedure, a small amount of the tissue from the testicle or the epididymis is taken for examination under a microscope.

What Should Be Known After Surgery?

After 7-10 days, an urologist should be consulted for the discussion of the results of the microscopic examination and further treatment.
