BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Couples can conceive even when all conventional fertility techniques have failed, according to a study just published in the Asian Journal of Andrology, detailing a breakthrough procedure called Sperm Mapping, which can help men diagnosed as infertile, or azoospermic, to become fathers. According to Dr. Paul Turek, senior author on the paper and the inventor of the technique, the published research demonstrates that Sperm Mapping is a game-changing technique in the treatment of men previously thought to be sterile.
The findings are especially timely in the world of infertility, as it comes in the wake of other studies that reportedly found sperm counts falling worldwide. This revolutionary research shows that it's possible for men to become fathers, even without ejaculated sperm. This has been further substantiated by Dr. Turek's success in treating many patients, who are now fathers or soon-to-be.
The Sperm Mapping process works like GPS does in your car, mapping the patients' testicle for sperm, and then using the 'map' to guide sperm retrieval. Dr. Turek, a male infertility and men's health specialist based in Beverly Hills, says the biggest challenge is to figure out which men have sperm and where the sperm are located in the testicles. "We knew our technique was good at finding sperm, but not this good, until now," he states. Pregnancy occurs using conventional assisted reproduction (IVF-ICSI).
