Dr. Bastuba - Training and Qualifications

Dr. Martin Bastuba M.D. F.A.C.S. is a board certified urologist educated at the country's leading medical institutions. He received urology training at Emory University and was among the first residents accepted into the prestigious combined fellowship program for male infertility and sexual dysfunction at Boston University School of Medicine. Only 2% of urologists nationwide are trained experts in these highly specialized medical treatments.

In 1993 Dr. Bastuba founded his medical practice Male Fertility & Sexual Medicine Specialists (MFS) to help patients in need of treatment for male infertility, urological disorders and  male sexual dysfunction. He later founded the San Diego Vasectomy Center, where he solely focuses on utilizing cutting edge vasectomy techniques to ensure that his patients experience faster recovery times and experience minimal pain.

Dr. Bastuba is the only board-certified urologist and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons who offers these services in San Diego. His experience and technical proficiency are complemented by his unique approach to patient care and service. He believes strongly in patient education and in creating a comfortable, informal environment in which to evaluate and provide treatment options for his patients.

Dr. Bastuba is well known for his expertise and high success rates in vasectomy reversal procedures. Patients from around the world travel to San Diego, California to receive vasectomy reversal surgery at MFS. He uses advanced microsurgical techniques to achieve high success rates in vasectomy reversal procedures and also has a successful track record with re-do vasectomy reversal surgeries.

In addition to MFS, Dr. Bastuba is the medical director at the Fertility Center of California, a cryobank offering fertility services, including sperm banking, donor sperm, artificial insemination, sex selection, fertility preservation and andrology laboratory services.

In all of his endeavors, Dr. Bastuba invests an immense amount of time and energy to ensure that his patients are educated about their treatments. He strongly believes that a patient's care is as important before treatment as it is after treatment. He personally manages his patients' care to provide maximum comfort and the very best results.
