What is MicroTESE?
MicroTESE is a scientific search for sperm under high magnification. This new surgical technique in Mexico has been developed to detect sperm in the testicles of men who have poor sperm production or non-obstructive azoospermia.
MicroTESE Mexico is currently recognized as the most effective way of finding sperm in men with non-obstructive azoospermia. Very few surgeons around the globe are skilled to perform this procedure. Surgeons in Mexico make this procedure widely available.
A Good Candidate for MicroTESE
Low sperm count is a common cause of male infertility but if a man produces even the tiniest number of sperm in his semen, these can be collected fairly easily. Good candidates for MicroTESE in Mexico are: Men who ejaculate no sperm, because of blocked tubes in their testes, or because of a genetic condition that prevents their sperm being released, require some form of surgical sperm retrieval.
During the MicroTESE procedure in Mexico, a microdissecting microscope is used to pinpoint the tissue to be removed. This aims to cause less damage to the structure inside the testicle, and to result in fewer after effects such as blood supply problems caused by tiny blood vessels being cut. It also appears to increase the number of sperm that can be retrieved.
MicroTESE can be implemented as a diagnostic procedure and if usable sperm are found then they can be frozen and the couple is recommended to proceed with ICSI in Mexico. It can also be performed timed with egg retrieval IVF in Mexico and the sperm are injected into the eggs without freezing.
Risks and Side Effects of TESE
The risks and side effects of TESE Mexico are minimal or rare. Most men report mild but enduring discomfort after the procedure but is controlled by pain medication. Most patients return to work the day after the procedure.
