Sperm Retrieval Clinic - Blusson Spinal Cord Centre

We provide services for men who have experienced spinal cord injury, damage to the nerves in the pelvic area, or other conditions which may interfere with the ability to ejaculate.  We also see men with ejaculatory difficulties who are actively trying to conceive.

For many people, sexuality and reproduction are very important aspects of life and these men often have concerns about their potential of becoming a biological parent.

At the clinic, we will:

  • Explore the most effective method of sperm retrieval

  • Conduct the appropriate male and female fertility assessments including semen quality

  • Discuss the possible approaches for achieving pregnancy

  • Provide information about the complexities of conception

  • Facilitate the process and collaborate with other members of the health care team
