Yes: Depending on the cause of the obstruction, it may be able to be repaired; if not, and/or you decide against surgery, sperm can be recovered from the testicle in a procedure known as tesa or testicular sperm aspiration. Your partner's eggs are then recovered and a single sperm can be injected into a single egg, known as icsi, or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Pregnancy rates can often be good.
