A male factor alone is responsible for infertility in 20% of couples and is contributory in another 30%. Evaluation of both partners is an essential part of the assessment of any infertile couple. After describing the aetiology and evaluation of male infertility, the chapter goes over surgical management techniques and approaches. It also has topics on testicular semen retrieval techniques, epididymal biopsy, and varicocele repair.
