Philippines Vasectomy Mission

In January of 2012 I was able to participate in my first vasectomy mission with No-Scalpel Vasectomy International.

The mission was jointly hosted by Sacred Heart Hospital and South Western University in Cebu City, Philippines. Eight vasectomist participated: 5 from the US, 1 Canadian, 1 Kenyan, and 1 Filipino.

The mission, just like in years past, was a huge success. This success was only possible because of a group of highly motivated social workers, community activist, and Filipino doctors who recruited men interested in vasectomy from the city and nearby villages.

General medical mission to the Philippines

The first part of the Cebu mission was the vasectomy mission. During the end of our stay we joined a combined medical surgical mission and the purpose of that mission was to provide general health care to the citizens of Cebu. Participating in this mission was very fulfilling because many of the participants did not have regular access to the health care and they were very appreciative for the free care they received.

The Philippines is a beautiful country and the people we met were accommodating and generous. The Philippines is not without its problems. The country has a rapid population growth and is over-crowded in many areas. The population of the Philippines is over 100,000 million people who live in an area about the same size as the state of Arizona! In comparison, the population of the United States is approximately 300,000 million but spread out across 50 states! If you asked every person living east of the Mississippi to move to Arizona then you would have a population density simliar to the Philippines.

Many of the citizens of the Philippines don’t have access to basic health care. The photos below show some of the beauty and sadness which we observed during our stay.

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!"

- J.W.

"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."

- S.E.

"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.
