IVOX IVF Hospital Treatment Options
IVOX clinic offers a variety of assisted reproduction options and also ways of treating male infertility problems:
- IUI (intrauterine insemination) and AID (artificial insemination with donor)
- Egg donation
- Sperm donation
- Embryo donation
- PGT-A (gender determination)
- Tandem IVF cycle
- Micro TESE/TESA
- Embryo freezing
- Sperm/egg freezing
- Sperm Chip (FertilePlus)
- MicroSort Method.
Microsort is a method that separates the male or female embryos according to their (X) and (Y) chromosomes.
IVOX IVF Hospital also offers treatments for men with azoospermia: testicular sperm extraction (TESE) and testicular sperm aspiration (TESA). These methods are the optimal form of retrieval for men with no sperm in their ejaculate (azoospermia) or those who have an issue with sperm production.
- Testicular sperm extraction (TESE) involves making a small incision in the testis and examining the tubules for the presence of sperm. TESE can be done as a scheduled procedure or can be coordinated with partner’s egg retrieval. It is usually performed with sedation but also can be performed in the office with only local anesthesia. It is a good idea to have your sperm frozen right after this procedure for future IVF cycle.
- Testicular sperm aspiration (TESA) is a procedure performed for men who are having sperm retrieved for IVF/ICSI. It is done with local anesthesia in the operating room or office and is coordinated with their female partner’s egg retrieval. A needle is inserted in the testicle so sperm can be aspirated. TESA is performed for men with obstructive azoospermia (s/p vasectomy).
