OBJECTIVE:

• To determine trends in male reproductive surgeries.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

RESULTS:

• The number of male reproductive surgeries has declined during the period of study, both in the inpatient and outpatient arenas. The number of procedures with a diagnosis of infertility has also declined.

CONCLUSION:

• The number of male reproductive surgeries has declined from 1988 to 2002.
