MEN’S HEALTH TREATMENTS
The male reproductive organ is incredibly complicated and makes up a detailed system. Treatments are outlined below will expand to help you further understand and find the resolution best required.

There are a number of reasons why an individual might undergo circumcision. The medical reasons can include the problem of a tight foreskin, known as Phimosis, recurrent balanitis, paraphimosis as well as many other medical conditions.
Some men may not wish to go ahead with circumcision and may be candidates for the so-called frenuloplasty. There are various techniques available for lengthening the male frenulum rather than needing to be fully circumcised.
This is a non-surgical, minimally invasive technique for men with Peyronie’s Disease. It involves injecting a medical substance called collagenase directly into the scar tissue which can cause the penile curvature.
LOW INTENSITY SHOCKWAVE THERAPY
Erections rely on healthy blood flow to the penile tissue. Shockwave therapy is viewed favourably as a way of repairing and strengthening blood vessels in the penis and improving blood flow.
Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse. Approximately 15% of couples attempting their first pregnancy meet with failure. In about 50% of couples seeking treatment, infertility will be caused by a problem in the male.
Micro Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (MESA) is where sperm is aspirated directly under vision from the epididymis.
MICROSURGICAL VARICOCELE LIGATION
Microsurgical varicocele ligation is a procedure performed using a high-powered operating microscope. The procedure aims to eliminate varicoceles or large, dilated veins of the spermatic cord in the testicles.
Micro-TESE is recommended for people who have abnormal sperm production (non-obstructive azoospermia). There are many causes of this including previous testicular surgery, previous medical treatment, a genetic problem, and other male factor infertility issues. Your surgeon will have organised tests to investigate this before surgery
Partial orchiectomy is an option for the management of testicular malignancy in a select group of patients in whom radical orchiectomy is not desirable, including those with a solitary testicle, bilateral concurrent malignancies and a desire for paternity or being independent of androgen supplementation.
A penile implant is a device placed inside the penis enabling it to become erect. It is often a last resort procedure after other treatments for erectile dysfunction have failed. There are two main types of penile implants.
The penis can be affected by a number of issues that cause mental and physical problems in men. Disease, accidents, and previous surgeries can all cause issues that affect the penis. Issues can cause pain in the penis which reconstructive surgery can address.
SSR can be useful in a number of circumstances. This includes couples who wish to try for a baby after a previous vasectomy but vasectomy reversal either isn’t suitable or isn’t desired and when couples are unable to conceive due to a diagnosis of azoospermia due to blockages (obstructive azoospermia).
Sperm retrieval locates and removes the sperm from the male testicles. The procedure is done in several cases including if a patient has an obstruction or blockage in his tubules and non-obstructive azoospermia.
TESA is a similar procedure to PESA, another form of surgical sperm removal, except that rather than taking sperm directly from the epididymis (this is the ‘sperm reservoir’ found at the back of each testis), with TESA, some sperm tubules (which produce sperm cells) are aspirated from the testes, and then sperm is extracted from these.
A vasectomy is a common surgical procedure performed on male patients to cut or seal the tubes that carry sperm. The procedure is a form of birth control and prevents male patients from fathering children in the future.
A Vasectomy reversal is a procedure that reverses a vasectomy surgery. A vasectomy is a birth control measure men undergo that prevents semen from carrying sperm. Although the surgery is very popular, some men can later decide to have their vasectomy reversed.
A vasoepididymostomy is often used to reverse a vasectomy for men who have a blockage to the testicle. The procedure involves reattaching the vas deferens and the epididymis. A vasoepididymostomy is more complex than a typical vasectomy reversal and used in some instances.
