Professional Activity:

Dr. Goldstein is internationally renowned for his pioneering work in vasectomy reversals and microsurgical repair of varicoceles and blockages.  He has performed over 1,000 microsurgical vaso-vasostomies and vaso-epididymostomies.  His technique of microsurgical vasectomy reversal, as published in a peer-reviewed journal, yields the highest reported sperm return and pregnancy rates.  He developed a microsurgical technique of varicocelectomy in 1984 and has performed over 3,500 cases with the lowest reported failure and complication rates.  He was the first American surgeon to be trained in, and perform, the Chinese method of No-Scalpel Vasectomy.  He has introduced the microsurgically assisted inguinal hernia repair which significantly reduces complications and failures.
