Endoscopy and Microsurgery


FAQs on Male Factor Infertility

Infertility surgery is a very delicate matter, and the doctor performing infertility surgery have to be very careful with handling of the tissue to prevent further scar tissue formation and allow the patient to be able to become pregnant in the future. If surgery or endoscopy is done without regard to future fertility and scar tissue formation, the surgery may actually hinder future fertility as well as cause miscarriages.

Microsurgical techniques are techniques used by fertility surgeons to optimize the outcome of surgery by minimizing adhesion formation. These techniques usually involve gentle handling of the tissue, and usually involve the following:

  • Use of Heparin or other blood thinners to prevent any formation of adhesions or blood clots.
  • Minimize bleeding during surgery to avoid blood clot formation and future adhesion formation.
  • Use of micro-instruments, or small instruments that are gentle and prevent damage to the tissue, thereby preventing scarring.
  • Taking extra care to avoid any vital structures which could be damaged during surgery, especially the ovarian or uterine blood vessels, to prevent any further complications during pregnancy.
