Micro-Dissection

The Farah hospital is keen to provide the latest scientific development and the best scientific solutions to our patients who have entrusted us and hopeful of success.

Recently, The Farah Hospital introduced a novel and revolutionary technique of locating sperm in the testis. This technique is referred to as micro-dissection and entails searching for sperm under guidance of a high resolution microscope. This technology is reserved for husbands suffering from severe forms of infertility where the semen sample contains little or no sperm.

Compared to more traditional techniques, micro-dissection offers higher chances of success in certain cases, the reason being that the surgeon is not blindly searching for sperm in the testis but is rather guided by a high resolution microscope. This technique ensures minimal trauma and scarring of the testicular tissue and also ensures collection of the best available sperm.

The obtained sperm can then be used to fertilize the egg(s) in the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) program. This procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia.
