Surgical sperm retrieval (SSR)

Surgical sperm retrieval is one of a variety of fertility treatments. It refers to a number of surgical methods used to obtain sperm from a man. Unlike other procedures, this procedure removes sperm from inside a man’s genitals instead of waiting for the sperm to be ejaculated out. SSR is intended to help men who actually have little or no sperm present in their ejaculate. Once the sperm is extracted , it can be used in intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) procedures.
