Yes: Patients who have large varicocele and have low sperm count , surgery is the best option to improve the sperm count and chance of having a baby. The surgery is called varicocelectomy and it is a very simple procedure that can be done on an out-patient basis. There is 30% chance of having a baby without any further intervention , another 30%chance of improvement remaining 30%no change.

Recommendation: This surgery gives you a chance to become a father, unless you keep dealing it for a long time. It will hopefully help you to have higher sperm count.
