Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is a procedure that has revolutionized the treatment of male infertility. During this procedure, a single sperm is injected directly into the partner's egg. As a result, men with a failed vasectomy reversal or with a congenital (from birth) absence of the vas deferens now have a high chance of fatherhood without using donor sperm. This procedure has decreased the need for donor sperm and almost eliminated the concept of untreatable male infertility. ICSI may be performed due to failed fertilization with IVF or male infertility such as low count, low motility and poor quality of sperm.
