Andrology - Male Infertility Treatment

Andrology is the medical field that specializes in men’s reproductive health. If you are seeking treatment for male infertility, your physician may refer you to the Diagnostic Andrology Laboratory at the University of Minnesota Medical Center.

Our experienced team provides a range of diagnostic testing for men’s reproductive health, including semen analysis and advanced sperm testing. We also provide sperm freezing and storage for fertility preservation and assisted reproductive technology (ART).

The Diagnostic Andrology Laboratory is run by experts in evaluating male infertility, and they partner with experts in treating male infertility. The testing procedures comply with and exceed current World Health Organization (WHO, 2010) standards. The Diagnostic Andrology Laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists.
