The blood supply to each testicle is redundant and numerous. Theoretically, if a significant portion of the blood flow to the testicle has been interrupted then the testicle could suffer enough damage to become atrophic (smaller). In severe cases this could result in complete loss of function to the effected testicle.

Although impaired testicular blood flow is a possible risk of vasectomy, it is a very rare complication and is estimated to happen in about 1 out of every 10,000 vasectomy procedures or <0.01%.

A significant insult to the testicular blood flow would most likely require an uncommon and severe vasectomy complication in a patient with pre-existing vascular compromise.

The patient would also likely have a pre-existing vascular insufficiency or have a preexisting vascular insult (previous hernia surgery, pelvic surgery, diabetes or other medical conditions which can cause vascular disease) that would exponentially exacerbate the vasectomy insult to the testicle.

Although impaired testicular blood flow is possible, most men can seek vasectomy with the reassurance this is a very unlikely complication.

What Our Patients Are Saying

"Dr. Monteith prepared me mentally for the pre, during and post procedure journey. He also provided me with all the tools necessary for a comfortable recovery. I'm definitely confident in this Dr's work, and especially glad at how little pain I experienced throughout the process. It would be worth it to visit Dr. Monteith no matter what state you have to travel from, I drove from Virginia."

"Very comforting and knowledgeable experience not only was the staff pleasant so was the atmosphere! I drove 3 hours so i did my research. I was impressed with the information, visuals, and on hand knowledge about what the procedure was all about. I felt like an expert after i left! Not to mention the 45 min in and out time. I will be recommending this to all my colleagues thank you!"

"Dr Monteith, and his staff, were all very professional about my decision to have a vastectomy. They informed me of the risks, the surgery procedure, and the post-surgery care. The procedure itself was relatively painless. I would rate this as a 2/10. I highly recommend Dr Monteith; he even sent me a text message after the surgery to give me a personal update on my procedure. The procedure was quick."

"If you're in the market for a Vasectomy you need to give Dr. Monteith a serious look. Just compare the information on his website to the information you'll get from other options around the triangle. It's hard to get solid answers on cost, procedure and expectations up front from other offices but A Personal Choice plays no games and has great informative well designed website. Dr. Monteith makes it easy!"

- J.P.

"Excellent care. I visited Dr. Monteith for a single visit appointment on a Friday. Very clean, comfortable office. Pleasant staff. The procedure was quick and I went back to work for a little while. The only pain I experienced was soreness beginning about 4 hours post procedure, lasting for 24 hours, then subsiding rapidly. I was fine by Monday. The office checked on me twice, no problems. I would recommend Dr. Monteith to anyone.
