We focus on men's sexual and reproductive health. Dr. Somers has 25 years of experience treating men's health issues. He spent 7 years as an Assistant Professor of Urology, training resident urologists at OSU Medical Center and opened his private practice in 1997. Among the "firsts" in his career, he was the first urologist to perform a MESA and TESE procedure in central Ohio. His success rate for MESA sperm retrieval is 98%. Dr. Somers was an expert panel member on the American Urological Association vasectomy guidelines committee, which published the definitive study on the latest up to date vasectomy techniques.

For those men who have had a vasectomy and would like to restore their fertility, Dr. Somers performs both microscopic vasectomy reversals and microscopic vasoepididymostomy (by-pass) surgeries. He is the leader in state of the art microsurgical techniques.

For those men who's reproductive years are behind them, vasectomy is an excellent contraceptive choice. Dr. Somers performs the no needle approach through one small opening in the skin. Downtime is usually only one day.

Infertility issues do not always require surgery. For these men one or two visits with minimal testing can often identify the problem and offer a medicine based treatment option.

For your convenience we offer evening hours.
