Andrology

We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of andrology conditions, including male fertility and erectile dysfunction

What is andrology?

We specialise in andrology, an area of medicine concerning men's health. That means diagnosing and treating conditions like congenital curvature of the penis, epididymal cysts, erectile dysfunction (impotence), hydroceles, male infertility, penile cancer, Peyronie’s Disease, testicular cancer and undescended testes.

Our andrology surgeons also specialise in treatments like circumcision, frenuloplasty, micro-dissection sperm retrieval, microsurgical varicocele ligation, penile implants, penile reconstruction, sperm retrieval, vasectomy, vasectomy reversal and vasoepididymostomy.
