Do You Suffer from Pain, Discomfort or Infertility Caused by Varicocele?
If so, you’re not alone. Approximately 15% of men will experience pain and/or infertility issues as the result of a varicocele at some point in their lives. Varicoceles often develop during puberty and typically affect the left testicle.
Left untreated, varicoceles can lead to testicular atrophy (shrinkage of the testicles) and infertility in men. In fact, the incidence of varicoceles can be up to 30% in couples who are having difficulty in conceiving. Varicocele may be the most common cause of male infertility.

Varicocele Embolization Provides Relief from Varicocele Pain and Infertility
Varicocele Embolization is a state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive treatment that closes blood flow to the affected veins. During this outpatient procedure a tiny nick is made in the groin. A thin catheter is then inserted into a femoral vein and safely guided to the site of the varicocele. A coil or fluid is then inserted to block blood flow to the vein feeding the varicocele.

What to Expect During Your Initial Consultation
As is the case when dealing with any medical procedure, men who suffer from varicocele typically have a lot of questions about the treatment process. Knowing what to expect during the initial consultation can be helpful in preparing for your upcoming appointment.
We will email you a link to our patient portal where you can complete the majority of the required paperwork. Make sure any patient forms including medical history are filled out to the best of your ability before your scheduled appointment begins.
Individualized Treatment Plan
Based on the results from the ultrasound and physical examination, we will develop an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs.
Examination and Ultrasound
During your varicocele screening, our providers will address your specific areas of concern. If you have not previously been diagnosed with a varicocele we will schedule an ultrasound. The ultrasound can be completed in our office during your appointment. You will be responsible for any required ultrasound testing copay or deducible, however this test is covered by many medical insurance providers.
An appointment for ultrasound with examination together should take about an hour.
