Reviews

“This excellent work highlights varicocele management in the effort to optimize a couple’s fertility potential. … This is intended for all students, scientists, and practitioners in the field of reproductive medicine. The authors direct their work to urologists, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, and embryologists. All would be well served by this compendium assembled by world leaders in andrology. … The authors provide a convincing, evidence-based body of citations and meta-analyses demonstrating the central role of varicocele in male infertility.” (Irvin H. Hirsch, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
