Male Fertility Success Stories
Reviews, Ratings and Testimonials About Dr. Martin Bastuba and MFS
Dr. Bastuba and the staff of Male Fertility & Sexual Medicine Specialists (MFS) have been helping couples and individuals overcome infertility and sexual dysfunction since 1993. Over the years, many couples have written us letters of thanks to share their story and inspire others.
Read a selection of patient testimonials below or view patient testimonials in our video library. To your right is a video testimonial from a couple that had a vasectomy reversal in the capable hands of Dr. Bastuba. After a successful vasectomy reversal, they were able to get pregnant and had a healthy baby boy!
|I am a patient of Dr. Bastuba’s. I have been fortunate to be his patient for the past 18 years. We first met soon after I moved to San Diego from out of state; I was not doing well at all when it came to my health. I had a lot of symptoms that none of the doctors I had seen up to that point had been able to diagnose, and I felt an overall decline in my well-being. That all changed when I met Dr. Bastuba, he quickly diagnosed my urological problems that had become very serious and at required surgery. Dr. Bastuba performed the surgery spectacularly and my recovery was easier then I ever imagined.
In the next few years I was able to have two more children with my wife. I was able to, in my fifties, enjoy a second youth through the birth of these two daughters. I am extremely grateful for the treatment and care I received from Dr. Bastuba. He gave me a new lease on life, both when it comes to my health and when it comes to the joy of fatherhood. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Bastuba. He has continued to care for my health over the years; he is my most important and trusted doctor, and friend.
|Dr. Bastuba and staff are exceptional. Not only were we successful in having our baby after a vasectomy reversal, but the entire experience was uplifting from the positive spirits helping us along the way to the comforting approach Marty takes in communicating everything about the procedure and specific details of our situation. We are forever grateful and would recommend him to you in a heartbeat!|
|I'm so happy to be writing this letter to you. We got pregnant two and a half years after our vasectomy reversal. We were actively trying for a long time and when we gave up trying, it happened!?! We are so overjoyed with our miracle baby. Jagger is six months old now, and he is quite a handful, but soo sweet. We are overjoyed and so grateful. His big sister, age 7, and brother, age 9, are over the moon as well with our blessing. Thank you!!!|
|I had a vasectomy when I was too young to know better, and after an 8 year marriage....got divorced. I remarried and had a reversal attempted. The reversal was unsuccessful and my wife and I were attempting to deal with the fact that we might not have children of our own. After researching many doctors and doing my homework, I felt convinced that traveling to San Diego to have Dr. Bastuba attempt to reverse 'course', was the right thing to do... so we made the trip. It was approximately 60 days after my surgery that we found out my wife was pregnant! Several years and 3 beautiful girls later we have decided our family is complete! GOD works miracles and in this instance, he used Dr. Bastuba's mind and hands to bring 3 new lives into this world.|
|I meant to write long ago, but my life has been very busy thanks to Dr. Bastuba. My husband had a vasectomy reversal back in June of 2009 and even though I knew Dr. Bastuba's success rates were high, I never imagined that I would become pregnant only 3 months after the surgery! Not only that, we got the girl we dreamed about! She is 16 months old now and just perfect. This would have never been possible without Dr. Bastuba. You are blessed with a wonderful gift. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.|
|You did a vasectomy reversal in November 2006. Nearly 25 years after my husband's vasectomy, we welcomed our son into this world. He was born June 26, 2008, 10:50pm, 8lbs., 3oz., 22 inches. Thank you!|
|My wife and I want to thank you so much!!!! On the 14th of this month we had our second beautiful baby girl. 4 years ago you had performed a vasectomy reversal on me! Thank you all again.|
|We are so pleased to introduce you to our son Benjamin! Without your expert hands, we would not have been able to have our own biological child. Thank you so much! He's absolutely beautiful & perfect in every way.
|We are very thankful to have our baby home for this first Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for the fact that God has given us this wonderful child, whom we've waited for. We are thankful to have overcome challenges that life often throws in our path and to welcome each day with new hope. In our family, like many families, try to be thankful every day. Little things we try not to take for granted like catching a funny new expression on Jimmy's face, or the fact that he smacks his lips together like he's blowing us kisses. What a beautiful baby we have! Christmas is coming and 2009 is around the corner. Our family would like to send you best wishes, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!|
|Thank you for making our Christmas wish come true! Madelyn expected March 16th, 2008
Merry Christmas! Hope it's the best!
|Just wanted to say thank you for your skill and expertise. It paid off! We are expecting a boy in December and have plenty of sperm in storage for a girl if we choose. So give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done for us. You truly are awesome! Thanks again!|
|Halloween is here again! We hope you have a fun holiday! Enclosed are photos of our children last year and this year.|
|As usual, the kids didn't want to take a Halloween picture, but we did it anyway! Happy Halloween 2008!|
|Seasons Greetings! Thanks for all you've done for us. You are still on our gratitude list! Best wishes for a happy new year!
|In late September 2005, you performed a MESA procedure on my Husband so he could have biological children in spite of his cystic fibrosis. We've never formally thanked you for helping us and making our dreams of conceiving and bearing children a reality. But we're thanking you now. We've enclosed a picture of our fraternal twin girls, born May 31, 2006 at 34 weeks gestation. They were the first two embryos implanted in our first cycle of IVF. Now, at 9 months they weigh 17 lbs 13oz and 16lbs 7oz. They are doing great! Thank you again for making it possible for us to have children together.
|We finally had our little guy. Jackson was born on June 9th, healthy and happy. Thanks for all your help! Wishing you a happy heart and a happy holiday!|
|Enclosed is a picture of the little miracle you helped us to create. She was born on July 3, weighing 8 lbs 1oz. A 12 weeks she is approx. 13 lbs and 24 inches long, the the 90th percentile for both! She is going to be tall like her father. Thanks for doing what you do an helping us create a family.|
|We wanted to thank you for all your help. Our little girl was born on February 15. Words can not express the joy she has brought to our lives. We sincerely appreciate everything you did for us.
|We take great joy in informing you of the birth of our son, Griffin Barett. This wonderful event could not have happened without the miracles performed by you and your staff. As you may recall, we came to your office after both a failed IVF cycle and a failed vasectomy reversal with other physicians. You performed an epididymal sperm extraction on my husband. Your efforts resulted in the birth of our son Griffin. Without you, we would not have our precious baby boy. Though words cannot express our thanks, we hope this letter can somewhat convey our endless gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you!|
|We reached for the stars and got an armful of heaven. Emilee Michiko brightened our lives on September 12, 2004.|
|We are celebrating our daughter's 6th birthday at Disneyland. We enjoyed ourselves and we thank you for making this memory possible! God Bless You and Your Staff!
|Thank you very much for your professional yet personable services. It's nice to be treated like a human being and not just a patient. We appreciate the time and energy you put into resolving my problems. Both you and your staff made me feel comfortable every time. Thanks again!
|Guess what?! We're pregnant! With twins! One girl and one boy:) We can't thank you enough for the guidance and support you have given us over the past year, to help make this dream of ours come true. We were about to do IVF, but my doctor wanted to do one more "diagnostic" test that involved taking Clomid. I only took 2 of the 5 doses, however, because I started having side effects. So we kept waiting for my cycle to start again so we could proceed with IVF ... but it never did! It appears those 2 doses of clomid jump-started my ovaries, plus my husband's increase in sperm count made for a good enough swim team to achieve ... TWINS! We are so thrilled, and are so happy to be sharing this news with you. We'll make sure to stop by for a visit after they are born. Thank you for your time and generosity. You were so kind in explaining things so thoroughly to us. We really appreciate your compassion.
|We want to express our deepest thanks for the role you played in bringing our special baby into our lives. We appreciate your willingness to try a new procedure on my husband, to minimize our costs. It revealed your integrity and character. We can't put into words how much joy and wonder our miraculous baby girl has brought us.
|I wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude for being my doctor through this process. You've always made me feel very comfortable and optimistic about my chances at becoming a father. There has been a running theme throughout this whole process where the "best" has been prevalent. The microdissection testicular sperm extraction procedure will give me the "best" chance of providing usable sperm. My wife's fertility drug protocol was changed to provide her with the "best" chance at producing the most quality eggs possible. And finally, I chose the best urologist to perform this procedure. No matter the result, you've made a difference in my life and I will be forever grateful.
|Here is the latest picture of our angel, Sarah Agnes. She was born August 26. Thanks to you we have our little miracle baby!
|Thank you for providing us with our two beautiful boys! Now our family is complete!
|You are the man! Thanks for an excellent and professional job. Your work is deeply meaningful on many levels. The enclosed picture would not have happened without your help. Thank you,
|Well, our "bundle" has finally arrived and [he is] the joy of our lives! He is just so very precious to us!! I would like to bring him by so we can get a picture of you holding him. This little guy wouldn't even be here without your help! We thank you so much!!
|You did my husband Michael's reversal surgery in November 2000, and by July 2001, thanks to you and the Lord, our prayers and dreams were answered. About 6 weeks early, on January 24, 2002, Casey blessed us with his arrival. 5 lbs. 3 oz. and 19 inches long into this world he came. I don't know if you hear it enough, but thank you for being so good at your job.
|Bill and I would like to thank you for everything and for our beautiful son. We think of you often, and how lucky we were to have had such a wonderful Doctor. We hope that everything is going well for you and we wanted to send you some pictures of Matthew. We will never forget you and how you helped make our very special wish come true. Thanks again.|
