At a time when I thought my life had come to an end, I had the good fortune to meet Dr. Karthik.  A web Search for leading andrologists in chennai found him for me.  I had been diagnosed with azoospermia recently and was advised by doctors either to adopt a child or to have a donor insemination done for my wife.  I was crestfallen.  I found that Dr. Karthik performed a procedure called sperm mapping and that he was the only andrologist offering this procedure to patients in India.  After consultation and going through my reports, doctor advised me to get a sperm map done.  Though I was initially scared, Dr. Karthik assured me that it is a minimally invasive procedure with absolutely zero damage to the testis.  The mapping procedure was absolutely pain free and uneventful.  I was home in about 4 hours and I just had a couple of aspirins for pain relief.  The map revealed sperms in 4 locations.  In November 2013 I had sperm retrieval followed by ICSI for my wife.  My wife is now pregnant. All I can say is I am really greatful to God and Dr. Karthik for helping us.  I think it is a shame that more doctors are not offering these choices to us.  I can only imagine our plight if I had not met the doctor.
