This program is a centre of excellence for the management of male infertility and has grown into the largest clinical program of its kind in Canada and one of the largest in North America. Close to 1000 new patients are seen yearly with more than 5,000 patient visits.
The program involves a multi-disciplinary team from Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Department of Medical Imaging, Medical Genetics and Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Jarvi has been at the forefront of the use of new and innovative surgical techniques in Canada, directing the largest program in Canada dedicated to the investigation and treatment for men with chronic scrotal pain. His team also has research into novel treatments for men with this condition including the use of Botox and other therapies. Dr. Jarvi was also the first in Canada to perform sperm aspiration for in-vitro fertilization, use a minimally invasive technique to retrieve sperm, use the sperm mapping procedure to retrieve sperm and use the newest technique of micro-surgical reconstruction of an obstruction of the reproductive tract.
