Urologist makes diagnosis and treat patients also with the help of surgery if needed. You need to see an urologist if you feel pressure in the bladder, pain or burning urination. If you have noticed blood in urine or lumps in your testicles - those are the signals which shouldn't be ignored.

TESA and male infertility
TESA (testicular sperm aspiration) - is the method used in in vitro treatment. This procedure enables extracting of viable sperm cells directly from the testicles. Retrieved reproductive cells can be used for future in vitro fertilization. TESA is a chance of having biological children for men struggling with azoospermia, the desease which is marked by a total lack of sperm in the semen. TESA procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
Fertility preservation - semen freezing
Sometimes incident, injury or oncological disease make it impossible for man to fulfil his dream of becoming a father. Most often, this method is used for medical reasons: fertility preservation in case of oncological diseases, operations on the male genitourinary system, including sex reassignment surgery, vasectomy. But social reasons are also becoming more and more popular: the absence of a partner, artificial fertilization (to save time, the presence of a man is not required in a long process), because of the profession - a sailor, pilot, military service or other occupation associated with a long absence.
But at My Clinic Riga patients can preserve their fertility and freeze semen for the future. It will be safely kept and stored at the clinic for many years, in a special conditions at a constant temperature of -196 °C. In the right moment couple have a chance of using preserved sperm by having in vitro treatment or insemination.
Varicocele – removal
Varicocele is an enlargement of the veins which are responsible for blood transportantion from the scrotum. Backward blood flow leads to blood congestion and testicles overheating. That condition unfortunately may cause infertility. At My Clinic Riga treat that condition also with low invasive method - laparascopic varicocelectomy, which helps to block the enlarged veins from draining. Varicocele may appear on one or both sides but most often it can be found on left side.
Vasectomy – male contraception
Vasectomy is most effective method of male contraception. It serves to those men who do not want to have more or any children. That surgical procedure aims to prevent sperm entrance through cut and tie of male vasa. At My Clinic Riga we use most advanced method of performing vasectomy under local anaesthesia without using a scalpel. Although vasectomy reversals are possible but it may be complicated and expensive process which may still be unsuccessful that is why vasectomy should be very well considered. In order to check if the vasectomy was done correctly and is effective, the semen analysis can be done.
Circumsision - for medical or religious reasons.
Circumsision is safe surgical method, which is one of the most popular procedures among men around the world. Beside being performed for medical reasons in some countries it is done with religious purpose. At My Clinic Riga we execute that procedure under local anaesthetic. Circumsision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, the tissue covering the head (glans) of the penis. The circumsision can be done by different methods depending on clinical indications or patient's preferences. Every method differs from other by location of the zone and the amount of the foreskin which is cut. Postoperative scar location and its visibility also depend on the method of the procedure.
