Mini Incision Vasectomy Reversal
I perform vasectomy reversal in my operating room, which is located inside my practice, under general anesthesia, and through a single midline mini scrotal skin incision.
We are located in Raleigh, North Carolina and most of our patients will travel from out of state to have their sterilizations reversed at our center.
A significant portion of my practice is devoted to female and male sterilization reversal.
We perform both male and sterilization reversal Monday through Thursday.
Fridays are dedicated to providing minimally invasive, no-scalpel vasectomy.
Our team of nurses and anesthesia professionals are dedicated to helping couples regain their fertility and reverse their regret over previous decisions they were told would be permanent and irreversible.
Our practice has a lengthy track record of helping women regain their fertility after female sterilization procedures. We are responsible for more babies born after reversal of tubal ligation than any other tubal reversal doctor in the world.
We were the first doctors to report the first successful pregnancies after reversal of the newest forms of female sterilization: Essure and Adiana hysteroscopic sterilization.
All vasectomy procedures are reversed in a state of the art operating room located within our facility.
Our operating room is dedicated to sterilization reversal for both men and women. This allows us to offer a personalized service, which is efficient, safe, and affordable. Our staff is dedicated to the care of patients who are reversing sterilization.
Vasectomy reversal is performed under general anesthesia for patient's maximal comfort. Our anesthesia staff are dedicated to our practice and are able to devote their undivided attention to each of our patients. Anesthesia is administered using an Aestiva 5 anesthesia machine and isoflurane and sevoflurane are our anesthetic agents of choice.
The operating room is equipped with state of the art equipment including; Maquet halogen lighting, Maquet operating room table, centralized oxygen and vacuum, and multiple patient warming devices.
We have dedicated surgical technicians and surgical nurses who will make your experience safe and efficient. We have the latest Aesculap microsurgical instruments and sterilization instrument cases. All instruments are processed, cleaned, and sterilized in our facility by specially trained staff using modern instrument washing systems and vacuum steam sterilization autoclaves.
I use the same minimalistic surgical approach to vasectomy reversal as I do with my minimally invasive no-scalpel vasectomy procedures.
I make a single midline vertical skin incision in the scrotal skin. This incision is approximately one (1) to two (2) inches in length and very often will not require any suture to close.
For magnification I use high-resolution eye loupes which offer 6X magnification. The ends of each vas deferens are identified and opened. Using a German engineered nerve transector a perfectly flush right angle dissection is performed across each closed end of the vas deferens.
Each vas deferens is reapproximated under magnification using fine 9-0 microsurgical sutures in multiple layers.
The scrotal incision will often close on its own and will usually not require any sutures.
Patients recover in our recovery room for about an hour. They are then discharged to one of two specially selected hotels located within one-half mile of our office and in a central part of midtown Raleigh.
Patients then return to see me the next day for a post-operative evaluation. They are then free to return home, they may return to light duty within seventy-two (72) hours, and can resume sexual intercourse two (2) weeks after surgery.
Scheduling vasectomy reversal
Most of our patients will travel to our center from outside of North Carolina. Since most of our patients travel to see us, we make the vasectomy reversal process efficient and easy. Patients can schedule surgery from their home state, travel to our office for a preopeartive consultation, have a vasectomy reversal the following day, and return home the day after surgery for a quick recovery.
Patients will review the information on our website and will call to have questions about vasectomy reversal answered by our staff.
Patients who would like a vasectomy reversal consultation before scheduling are welcome to arrange this if they feel it is necessary before having surgery. These consultations may either be in person or by phone.
Patients will then travel to our center and stay in one of two specially selected hotels that offer reduced rates for our patients. Each hotel provides private car transportation to our center and this chauffeured car service is included in the reduced room rate. Each hotel is located in the trendy North Hills Mall in the heart of midtown Raleigh. There are many great restaurants, shopping venues, and places of entertainment within walking distance of each hotel.
