In these modern times, it has become evident that the successful practice of reproductive medicine requires the coordinated efforts of many medical professionals, including the andrologist, endocrinologist, urologist, and the gynecologist. In turn, this team would not be complete without the dedicated support of the psychologist, radiologist, and reproductive biologist, among others. Male Reproductive Dysfunction: Pathophysiology and Treatment will educate and update both new and experienced practitioners alike with the most significant advances contributed by each of these distinct specialties towards the improved overall understanding of male reproductive dysfunction, and provide practical strategies for the assessment and management of these conditions.
