Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI has revolutionized treatment of severe male-factor infertility. With ICSI, only a few (8-10) motile sperm are needed to achieve excellent success rates. These sperm may be obtained from the ejaculate or surgically from the epididymis or testicles. These procedures are safe, fast, and essentially painless. Please see our page about Male Infertility for further information.

In the ICSI procedure, the sperm is injected directly into the egg.

Assisted Hatching

Assisted Hatching (AH) is a procedure performed on the 'shell' (zona pellucida) of the early embryo. This procedure weakens the shell and allows more successful 'hatching' which in turn results in higher pregnancy rates in selected patients. Please contact your infertility specialist for further details or to find out if AH would be beneficial in your case.
