What is Andrology ?
This specialty includes the treatment of physical conditions affecting the male genitalia, such as undescended testes, diseases affecting male fertility and sexual functions. Health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney failure can all reduce sexual function. So Andrologists work together with caregivers in those fields. They also help in retrieving sperms for in-vitro fertilization and various assisted reproductive techniques. They perform vasectomies as means of male contraception. Also, they restore the reproductive potential in males with best possible medicines and surgeries if required.
Since male sexuality is largely controlled by hormones, andrology overlaps with endocrinology. Surgery in this field includes fertilization procedures, vasectomy reversals and the implantation of penile prostheses.
