TESE (testicular sperm extraction or open biopsy) is the most precise and optimal method for diagnosing infertility in men at a moment. The procedure helps to diagnose the cause of infertility with a high degree of accuracy. TESE is performed under general or spinal anesthesia and lasts from 60 to 90 minutes.
The operation is performed through scrotal skin incision (5 -7 cm) and tunica albuginea, which makes it possible to obtain a sufficient amount of the biological material for examination under a microscope for the presence of spermatozoa. Then the incision is sutured, and on the same day the patient can go home.
Discomfort in the scrotum after the biopsy disappears after 1-4 days. While meeting medical recommendations, the risk of complications is minimal.
The day after surgery, the patient comes to the clinic for examination, which includes wound dressing. Within 7-10 days, the patient needs to avoid physical exertion and abstain from sexual activity.
