In brief: Less than 30%

Percentage depends upon original position of undescended testes when corrected, i.
e. Intra-abdominal udts are associated with more infertility than low inguinal udts. Associated abnormality such as poor attachment of epididymis has a worse prognosis. Age at correction is very significant, the younger the better. Both testes undescended beyond puberty can never be associated with normal fertility.

In brief: Few

If cryptorchidism (undescended testis) is not corrected before puberty then low sperm counts are common.
The surgery is called orchiopexy and is performed by urologists.
