The department of Andrology provides the most scientific protocols in the diagnosis and treatment of male fertility. This new male infertility management depends on specialized proper evaluation of the male factor by clinical examination for testicular size and checking for the presence of varicocele, hormonal profile, scrotal Doppler, and semen analysis, according to the standards of the World Health Organization. Different modalities are available in this unit to manage low sperm count, low sperm motility and increased sperm abnormality.
 
Andrology department includes clinic and education and research.
 
The mission of this department is to improve diagnostic and therapeutic methods by using and applying the results of investigative projects, in addition to using stem cells to treat patients with incomplete spermatogenesis. Providing quality health care for infertile males, educating the lay and professional communities on the latest treatments for male fertility and enhancing the understanding of male infertility issues by developing research projects are the vision of this department.
 
The first step in infertility management is couple's evaluation. Male factor infertility accounts for approximately 50% of all infertility cases. Thus, in order to study male factor infertility, it is necessary to use appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. The intent of this research department is to develop new diagnostic methods and treatments for male factor infertility.
