About

Dr. Williams is an associate professor in the Department of Urology. He is fellowship-trained in Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery and specializes in all aspects of male infertility, including: 

* Microsurgical vasectomy reversal - Vasovasostomy and the more complex vasoepididymostomy
* Microsurgical varicocelectomy - Varicocele is the most common surgically-correctable cause of male factor infertility; surgery is done on a same-day outpatient surgery basis, typically under general anesthesia
* Sperm procurement techniques including testicular sperm extraction (TESE), microscopic epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA), and microdissection-TESE
* Sperm cryopreservation
* Electroejaculation
* Treatment of testicular failure and male hypogonadism (testosterone deficiency)

In addition to vasectomies, Dr. Williams’ work in general urology includes medical and surgical treatments of: 

* Erectile dysfunction
* Diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (including laser treatment of BPH)
* Urinary tract infections
* Prostatitis

Dr. Williams works with our physicians in Generations Fertility Care who treat female-factor infertility to help diagnose and treat infertile couples.
