If you live in Miami, Florida or surrounding areas and are interested in learning more about ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), please contact us today.
In addition to beginning fertility treatments and in vitro fertilization (IVF), Palmetto Fertility Center offers specialized treatments such as ICSI. At our Miami, Florida center, we perform ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) to help couples with male factor infertility. ISCI is a micromanipulation technique in which a single sperm is injected into each mature egg.
At our Miami, Florida center, our professionals begin ICSI by specially preparing both the sperm and the egg; then, the egg is injected with a single sperm using a microscopic needle. This technique allows couples to achieve fertilization and pregnancy when the male partner produces low-quality, low-count sperm.
Some men suffer a blockage or other abnormality that prevents the passage of sperm through ejaculation. A minor surgical procedure can be performed in which sperm is retrieved from the epididymis or directly from the testicle. This sperm is then injected into mature eggs obtained through IVF (in vitro fertilization). Sperm from testicular/epididymal sperm aspiration can be successfully cryopreserved (frozen) for future use.
Dr. Michael D. Graubert and the professionals at the Palmetto Fertility Center serve Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miramar, Florida. If you are interested in ICSI or another fertility treatment we offer, please contact us today.
Unlike other fertility programs that do mechanical assisted hatching, the Palmetto Fertility Center is one of the few programs in Florida to use a laser to perform assisted hatching.
For the first six days of existence, embryos remain within a hard, shell-like structure called the zona pellucida. Assisted hatching is a micromanipulation technique in which a small opening is gently made with a laser in the zona pellucida of three-day-old embryos. This technique may be useful for women who have been unsuccessful with IVF in the past, or in older age groups.
Serving Miramar, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, the Caribbean, and all of South Florida, Palmetto Fertility Center offers ICSI, laser-assisted hatching, and a wide selection of other techniques to help you and your partner conceive.
