The Procedure

Having a vasectomy is one of the most popular forms of permanent contraception in the world. It does not affect a man’s sex drive, ability to have an orgasm or cause prostate cancer.

The procedure involves finding the two tubes that transport sperm from the testicles and blocking them.

There are different ways to perform this procedure and the technique we have developed is designed to maximize effectiveness while decreasing the risk of complications and pain.

Sedation

IV sedation is safe and carefully monitored by a specially trained and certified nurse anesthetist. There is no additional charge to you or your insurance for the service.

 

No Scalpel, No Needle

We utilize the No-scalpel technique that results in a smaller incision, less pain and a speedier recovery. We use sutures instead of metal clips to block the tubes.

We will perform an “open-ended” vasectomy for those patients that request the service (http://www.vasectomy-information.com/pages/oevas.htm).

The No-Needle, No-Scalpel Vasectomy describes using a special ‘hypo-spray’ injector to numb the scrotal skin without using a needle. (Example is at http://www.noneedlevasectomy.com/ )

The procedure can be performed through a single incision in most cases.

Thank you for considering us for your vasectomy. We promise to make it as comfortable, pain-free and successful as possible.

Preparing for your procedure

Please download, read and complete the Vasectomy Packet prior to your procedure.

Prior to your procedure we ask that you shave your scrotum to prevent any hairs from intruding on the incision.

You will need to bring someone to drive you home if you have either oral or IV sedation. Finally, you will need to bring a jock strap (without a cup) to lift your testicles which will decrease the risk for post-operative discomfort.

Procedure in Detail

If choosing IV sedation, you will first have an IV placed. The procedure begins by cleaning the scrotal skin and applying sterile drapes. The skin over the vas deferens is numbed using lidocaine.

The no-scalpel technique is then used to make a very small scrotal incision (about 5 mm in length) to expose the vas deferens. Care is then taken to isolate the vas deferens from surrounding tissue and nerves. A section of the vas deferens is then removed and the remaining ends are cauterized.

vasectomy-before-afterA suture is used to tie off each end to avoid the use of metal clips.

An additional step is then taken to separate the ends into different compartments to minimize the risk of the ends finding each other.

The area is then inspected for bleeding and the procedure is repeated on the other side.


Possible Complications

• Painful swelling of the tesiticles (epididymitis).

• Build up of sperm at the end of the cut vas deferens (sperm granuloma).

• Bleeding within the scrotum (hemorrhage).

• Abscess within the scrotum.

• The ends of the vas deferens may rejoin themselves (recanalization).

• Chronic pain at the vasectomy site (post-vasectomy syndrome).
