Male Infertility Treatment - Microfluidics, Sperm DNA Fragmentation, TESA and Micro TESE

Male infertility means the inability of a male partner to cause pregnancy in a fertile female. Of all fertility problems in couples, male infertility accounts for 40–50%. Male infertility is triggered by many factors such as Illnesses, trauma, chronic health conditions, sedentary lifestyle habits and many more.

The common fertility problems are low sperm production, low sperm quality, abnormal function of the sperm or conditions preventing the delivery of sperm. The exact cause of male infertility isn’t clear in some cases. Don’t worry; a fertility expert with the help of an ART process will improve your fertility or conception.

At ZIVA Fertility Clinic, we offer some advanced diagnostic sperm retrieval procedures that will help you & your partner have a healthy and successful pregnancy.


Due to the decrease in male fertility, researchers are looking for a technique to select the most high-quality, motile sperm to increase the success rates of Assisted Reproductive Technique (ART). Sperm microfluidics is one of the potential techniques available now at ZIVA.

The sperm micro-fluidics approach can help to improve our understanding of sperm motion. This technology is emerging as a diagnostic alternative for male infertility. In high-speed imaging, the microfluidics technique has resolved the swimming pattern of sperms in the bulk fluid. This technology can enable the selection of high-quality sperms by mimicking the in vivo process… Read More Detailed Information

Sperm DNA Fragmentation

The integrity of genetic material in your sperm is very important for the fertilisation and the development of a healthy embryo. Sperm DNA fragmentation is referred to as abnormal genetic material within your sperm that can lead to male infertility, failure of ART procedures and pregnancy loss.

In general, a standard semen analysis is done to analyse the sperm concentration, motility, and morphology cannot evaluate the sperm at the molecular level, and as a result, Sperm DNA fragmentation was introduced to analyse the sperm cells deeper. 

Various sperm DNA fragmentation tests are available, and we at ZIVA use the latest and advanced SpermComet test procedure, which can provide detailed information… Read More Detailed Information

Testicular Sperm Aspiration(TESA)

Testicular Sperm Aspiration(TESA) is a novel sperm retrieval method suggested to men with infertility problems like Azoospermia, a condition in which the semen doesn’t contain sperm in their ejaculate.

A few decades back, the only treatment option for Azoospermia was reconstructive surgery if the sperm was obstructed to come out or donor insemination. However, the medical field developed many novel procedures, and the inventions of intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) have enabled a new process like TESA to extract the sperm directly from the epididymis or testis and helped many men with Azoospermia to become the biological father for their children.

Extremely poor sperm production or no sperm production is a major concern in many men. In such cases, TESA turned out to be a big breakthrough in obtaining the sperm through needles directly from the testis of a man…

Micro TESE

Microsurgical testicular sperm extraction (micro TESE) is an innovative procedure used to retrieve sperm surgically from the male’s testes. Men with non-obstructive Azoospermia are suggested, a common male infertility problem in which man can’t produce sperm in his semen. Micro TESE the best alternative when other options failed to retrieve sperm from the sperm.

The procedure involves making a small incision in the scrotum under general anaesthesia, where both testicles are visible. Sperm is then collected either from one or both the testicles based require and availability.

Micro TESE has a high success rate which is favourable to men. Doctors say that in 60% of the case, they can retrieve sperm during microTESE procedures. Many studies also show that this procedure has the highest sperm retrieval rate.
