What is a Vasectomy?
Most know that a vasectomy is a surgical operation performed on men to prevent them from having children. This is done by closing off the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles. Without sperm, a man’s semen is no longer capable of creating life.
A vasectomy can be performed in one of two ways: the conventional method or a no-scalpel method. For a conventional vasectomy, a scalpel is used to cut your scrotum so the tubes, known as vas deferens, can be reached. There is one tube for each testicle.
A small section of each tube is cut out and (potentially) cauterized, and then the skin is stitched back together.
The no-scalpel method uses a hemostat to make a small puncture in the scrotal sack. The vas deferens is then pulled through the hole, cut, cauterized, and put back in place. Because the hole involved in no-scalpel is so small, stiches usually aren’t need.
The patient is awake regardless of the procedure chosen, though anesthetic is applied to numb the pain. Though it might sound intimidating, both methods are quick and pain free.
We also offer “no needle” anesthesia where we numb the area without injecting a needle into the skin.

Though a vasectomy is a relatively simple procedure, complications can arise when done improperly. This can include discomfort, swelling, infection, and failure to stop sperm from passing through the vas deferens. In the cast of the latter, this can lead to unwanted pregnancy.
A vasectomy is a great choice birth control, but it is important that you choose the right person to do it. Our vasectomy doctors specialize in the urinary tract and male reproductive organs, making them the most qualified type of doctors to perform this operation.
