Dr Jonathan Ramsay
Jonathan Ramsay has been a Consultant Urologist at Hammersmith, Charing Cross and Chelsea & Westminster Hospitals since 1988. He works closely with the fertility units, both at Hammersmith and Chelsea, and is also a visiting urologist to fertility clinics in Bucks, Sussex, and Central London.
Research interests and publications include methods and outcomes of sperm retrieval, vasectomy reversal and the genetic causes of infertility.
New areas of interest include fine-needle aspiration (FNA mapping techniques), used prior to standard micro-surgical sperm retrieval. On-going clinical trials into the utility of testing for reactive oxygen species are revealing some interesting findings. In conjunction with Specialists in Endocrinology at Hammersmith Hospital, we have ongoing studies into the effects of weight loss and diet.
Men with presumed fertility problems require individual care, diagnosis and advice, otherwise they feel abandoned by the doctors who can do so much for their partners, and sometimes they feel guilty that there seems to be so little they can do to help the situation.
My practice in men's fertility aims to answer three important questions. Firstly, is there a 'male factor' problem? Secondly, can we diagnose a cause? Thirdly, can we offer straight-forward (evidence-based) treatment?
