: Does anyone know if it's possible to use a urologist from one facility to do a surgical sperm retrieval in conjunction with an IVF/ICSI cycle at a different facility? I may have a scheduling problem in terms of aligning availability of my wife's RE and my urologist, and want to review my options. (I know freezing in advance is one option. Looking for other options for simultaneous procedures.)

: Thanks.

Often times - yes. Speak with your RE about this. We wanted to use our own urologist who was not on staff at the hospital our clinic is affiliated with. Our IVF team literally bent over backwards to make our urologist feel "at home." (He's STILL talking about what a pleasure it was to be there.) This presented no problems whatsoever ... the nurses even spoke with him beforehand to coordinate everything. Best wishes and good luck with your treatment. Debi
