Intracytoplasmic sperm insemination, commonly called ICSI or ICSI, is a technology that developed in 1992, 1993 and it was an offshoot of IVF work. ICSI is merely a technology whereby we take a single sperm and place it into the human egg to accomplish fertilization. It is used for men who have very severe sperm abnormalities. ICSI is performed used high magnification because the egg is about 1/100 of a millimeter in diameter and the sperm is about 1/1000 of a millimeter in diameter. So we pick up the sperm and pick up the egg and hold it and place the sperm cell into the egg under a robotically controlled system. ICSI has proven to be very beneficial for men who could never have children on their own without this technology.
