GP Referral

Jonathan Ramsay details for GPs image

I receive many patient referrals from GPs and understand how important it is for you to find the right person to help your patient.

Hopefully, the information elsewhere on my website has provided an overview of my experience, but if you would like further information you can access my full CV and find below a list of lectures that I have recently given on the field of urology, with a specialism in male fertility.

January 2020 saw me examining in Kuala Lumpa. I was on the speciality board in Urology, of the Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Examinations and really enjoyed the task.

Patient Referrals

Should you decide that I am well-placed to help your patient there are several ways of referring them to me:

Recent Papers

Please find below a list of recent medical publications and papers I've authored or been a part of:


Should the current guidelines for the treatment of varicoceles in infertile men be re-evaluated? 

Published in March 2019, this review comprehensively evaluates the current indications for varicocele treatment, and it is proposed that these should be redefined in contemporary guidelines to reflect current advances in male fertility research.



A Comparison between two assays for measuring seminal oxidative stress and their relationship with sperm DNA fragmentation

Oxidative stress (OS) is a significant cause of DNA fragmentation and is associated with poor embryo development and recurrent miscarriage. The aim of this study was to compare two different methods for assessing seminal OS and their ability to predict sperm DNA fragmentation and abnormal semen parameters



Microdissection testicular sperm extraction for men undergoing cancer treatment

Where cryopreservation of a good quality semen sample is not possible or was not offered prior to initiation of treatment, microdissection testicular sperm extraction (mTESE) offers a potential route to biological fatherhood. This review explores current evidence supporting the use of mTESE in patients treated for cancer, as well as some of the barriers and questions that still remain before this technique can form part of routine practice.



Mixed Sertoli cell only histology and NOA

Likelihood of sperm retrieval is increased four-fold when Sertoli-cell only histology is observed in combination with another histological pattern during microdissection testicular extraction (mTESE) for non-obstructive azoospermia



Male Infertility

In this chapter from the publication "Recent Advances in Endocrinology and Diabetes 1", my co-authors and I report on the main contributory factors to male infertility, and discuss the most appropriate ways in which to manage those suffering.
