- Male infertility is complex, and each case is unique. Mayo Clinic reproductive endocrinologists and male fertility experts are fellowship trained and work with hundreds of people every year to help them begin or expand their families. They will work directly with you to improve your chances for fertility and successful conception — whether by medication, surgery, in vitro fertilization or another method.
- A multidisciplinary team of experts in reproductive specialties can assess your conditions and your partner's and help you decide on a treatment plan that best fits your needs and preferences.
- Our mission to find and share better medical expertise means close contact with people working to discover better methods to diagnose and treat male infertility. The Mayo Clinic team actively assesses and incorporates the latest evidence regarding fertility to give you the best outcomes with the least unnecessary testing and delay.
- Cutting-edge technology. Mayo Clinic offers the latest in surgical techniques, including varicocelectomy, vasectomy reversal and sperm retrieval.
- Care at Mayo Clinic revolves around you. A detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures lets us make the most of your time at the clinic. We also run all tests and labs ourselves, which means most tests taken in the morning can be reviewed the same afternoon. Our collaborative approach means two or three days often yields the same diagnosis and care insights that could take weeks in less coordinated institutions.
- Competitive pricing. Mayo Clinic offers state-of-the art surgical techniques with competitive pricing available for many procedures including sperm extraction, varicocelectomy and microsurgical vasectomy reversal. Estimated pricing may be obtained by contacting the business office.
