The New York Times reported on various responses to a recent study suggesting that sperm counts have been dropping for decades. Dr. Peter Schlegel, Chairman of Weill Cornell Urology, is featured for commentary, noting that male infertility is not rising at an alarming rate.
Marc Goldstein, MD, is fond of saying, "I have a son and two granddaughters, but every time I get a call that one of my couples who I've treated is pregnant, it feels to me like it's one of my own. So, when anyone asks how many children I have, I tell them I have 5,000!"
On January 29, 2018, The Department of Urology hosted a symposium for patients on the newest treatment approaches for severe male infertility. This includes men with no sperm in the ejaculate (azoospermia) because of low sperm production as well as men with this condition of non-obstructive azoospermia that have failed attempts at testicular sperm retrieval (detection & removal of sperm from the testicle using microTESE.)
