TESE - TEsticular Sperm Extraction
TESE is a microsurgical procedure that we use when we need to get sperm directly from testicular tissue with a small cut in the scrotum area. The procedure is performed by a urologist under general anesthesia and is not covered by health insurance.
TESE is used if sufficient sperm quality cannot be obtained from the epidermis and we assume that in certain parts of the testicles the production of sex cells is preserved, even immature sex cells are sufficient. If the collected sperm is not developed, we cultivate it in the laboratory before use. After TESE, the ICSI method must be used to fertilize the egg.
Carefully follow regular hygiene during convalescence in order to avoid possible complications. Avoid strenuous activities and sports for 3 weeks after surgery.
