Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) at Palm Beach Fertility Center
Effective Fertility Treatments
If you and your spouse or partner are committed to getting pregnant and
overcoming male infertility problems, ICSI with the help of a trained
fertility specialist may be the answer. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection,
or ICSI, is a procedure that consists of taking your partner's sperm
and inserting it directly into your eggs for the
IVF (in-vitro fertilization) process. While this may seem complex, Dr. Mark Denker at Palm Beach Fertility
Center has been in practice for more than 20 years and is an expert in the area.
The ICSI procedure is ideal for partners experiencing any of these problems:
- Inability of sperm to fertilize an egg or penetrate the egg at all
- Any type of physical abnormality or blockage which prevents the production of sperm
- Post-vasectomy problems, such as the need for a biopsy
How Does ICSI Work?
During ICSI, each of the retrieved eggs is placed in a dish and held still
with gentle suction while a single sperm is carefully inserted into the
cell using a needle. The next day it is possible to determine which eggs
have been successfully fertilized. We are very familiar with this process
and can ensure that you understand what to expect and are thoroughly educated
as to how ICSI can help you.
ICSI is also useful for couples where the male patient has low sperm count
or poor sperm morphology, since only one sperm is required to fertilize
each egg. It may also be recommended for couples who have had low or no
egg yield or poor fertilization success in the past, since there is greater
control of fertilization.
