Leading Doctor Finds Less Invasive Way to Fix Common Male Infertility Problem
NEW YORK, NY, March 26, 2013/Engage Newswire/Dr. Harry Fisch, M.D. has found a procedure that is believed to fix a common male problem. Varicocele is a condition in which the veins located in a maleÔÇÖs scrotum are enlarged. This occurs because of faulty valves inside of the veins that do not close off the vein properly. These valves are normally used to prevent the blood from flowing backwards. When they are not working correctly, blood begins to pool in the veins, causing them to swell, in turn making the testicles warmer. As the body naturally tries to cool the testicles down, the scrotum inches away from the body yet still continues to be warm. A result of varicocele is usually a sagging scrotum. Dr. Fisch explains it as feeling ÔÇ£like a bag of worms in your testicles.ÔÇØ
It is said that about 20% of the male population has some kind of varicocele. Many men do not realize this condition is present because it does not typically cause pain. As many men know, heat can lower fertility and sperm counts, which is the main reason for this procedure, though it can also have an effect on libido, energy and muscle mass. Varicocele is more common in older men and when found in young adolescents, can be a cause for concern.
Dr. Harry Fisch is a leader in menÔÇÖs health issues, including male infertility and sexuality. As a world renowned urologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital as well as Weill Medical College of Cornell University, varicocele surgery is just one of many microsurgical techniques pioneered by Fisch. Dr. Fisch has treated thousands of patients successfully and has been named to the ÔÇ£AmericaÔÇÖs Top DoctorsÔÇØ and ÔÇ£New York Magazine Top Doctors.ÔÇØ For his knowledge of menÔÇÖs health, Fisch appears on the Dr. Oz Show regularly and also has a medical advice show on Howard 101, Howard SternÔÇÖs SiriusXM radio station.
With this inventive surgery, the swollen veins are located and tied off to prevent the blood from pooling and causing the swelling of the scrotum. Once this has been fixed, the testicles will cool down and allow the scrotum to retreat back towards the body. This surgery is completed as an outpatient procedure and since the incision is only about an inch in length, the recovery time is usually rapid.
Dr. Harry Fisch believes that this condition is often overlooked by other doctors who do not understand the role that varicoceles plays in infertility and low testosterone. But for those with this condition, the result of this surgery can be life changing.
