Vasectomy

Needle-Less, No-Scalpel Vasectomy

Vasectomy is considered to be the safest, most reliable and most common method of permanent male sterilization. It is believed to be free of known long term side-effects. Needle-less Vasectomy is an improved approach which has eliminated the traditional needle injection of local anesthetic. No-Scalpel Vasectomy is another improved technique which results in decreased procedure time, less associated discomfort, more rapid recovery and lower complication rates.

We are continually refining the vasectomy process. As a result it has slowly become an art form where only improved, time-tested, and proven techniques are employed. Our Needle-Less No-Scalpel approach integrates the latest techniques and technologies to minimize access size and improve wound healing. Our focus has been, and continues to be, on continuously improving these minimally invasive approaches.

Vasectomy is both minimally invasive and maximally convenient. The vas deferens is divided. The open-ended approach minimizes post-procedure discomfort and improves the chance of success if a reversal is performed. The use of cautery, along with tissue interposition, minimizes the possibility for reconnection.

Minimal inconvenience, generally requiring only two office visits:

  • Initial consultation (30 minutes)
  • Vasectomy procedure (45 minutes)
  • Follow-up assessment is typically unnecessary

Any discomfort is typically insignificant:

  • Pre-procedure topical anesthesia “numbs” the access area
    • Needle anxiety should not be an issue
    • Sedation has not ever been necessary
    • Jet inoculation technique completes the “numbing” effect without needle usage
  • Normal activities are only minimally interrupted
    • Pain medication is usually not needed
    • Patient is almost always able to drive home
    • Work, most exercise and sexual activity can usually resume within 24 hours

Needle-Less No-Scalpel Vasectomy is the ideal approach if permanent male sterilization is desired.
