The Newest Minimally Invasive Vasectomy Provider: Dr Zerden!

August 28, 2023

dr-zerden-provides-the-newest-vasectomy-procedure-in-durham-chapell-hill-areaMen of the triangle area of North Carolina are in luck. Why?

Because there is new provider of minimally invasive vasectomy: Dr Matthew Zerden!

Don’t get us wrong…the Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill area has a ton of vasectomy doctors. Especially when compared to other areas of the country and even more so when you look at rural areas. The problem with many of these areas is that it is hard to find a no scalpel, minimally invasive vasectomy doctor.

To be fair, most doctors of the triangle area are modern and well trained. Most do offer their patients no scalpel vasectomy. The problem is that these doctors often require a consultation. These appointments are usually scheduled 2 to 6 months into the future (six months is not an exaggeration). Not only are the consultations far out, but they also require you to return for a second procedure appointment. So that is two visits and a lot of anxiety.

Dr. Zerden is now a new provider of minimally invasive vasectomy and he specializes in single, visit affordable vasectomy with decreased barriers to patients seeking this very important service.

Who is Dr Matthew Zerden?

Dr. Matthew Zerden is the Medical Director of His Choice Vasectomy of Durham and Chapel Hill!

He is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and he has a special interest in reproduction. He is a strong supporter of vasectomy. He knows from first hand experience that  having a vasectomy is far easier and safer for men than is tubal ligation surgery for women.

Who is Dr Zerden? In his own words,

In 2009, I graduated from Harvard Medical School and moved to Durham to continue my medical training and grow my own family. Having lived in Chapel Hill as a child, I knew this was a special place, and I was eager to return. Now my family, I happily call this area home.

For the past 15 years, I have mainly been taking care of pregnant women, which included a 2 year fellowship in Complex Family Planning from UNC. That specialized training allowed me to be an expert in preventing pregnancies and in providing surgical sterilizations. Although most Ob/Gyns provide birth control and sterilization, my fellowship provided additional education and skill in providing these same services to women with very high risk medical conditions. During my training, I often wondered why male contraception and sterilization was completely overlooked.

Through my career’s work, I have had the privilege of delivering thousands of babies. I have also had the burden of witnessing the experiences of numerous families when pregnancies did not go as planned or caused significant health complications to the mother. Most pregnancies go well but most does not mean all.

I have cared for many patients who told me that they were done having children, but then their birth control failed, or female surgical sterilization was too expensive or too difficult to obtain – and they got pregnant again.

Unfortunately, I have seen women suffer serious complications as a result of birth control side effects. I have seen sterilization procedures that did not go as planned. Although it may be hard for some to understand, pregnancy can be a very high risk condition for some women. I have even witnessed some women die as a result of pregnancy complications.

I wanted to do more. I wanted to expand my knowledge and my services to help men who wanted to effectively control or limit their reproduction. Although scientific research has mostly focused on controlling women’s reproduction there are a large number of men who have the willingness to contribute to the effort to limit reproduction. Sadly both the number of options and the number of health care providers able to help men are far more limited when compared to women.

I want to help men when they decide they don’t want to have any more children, or no children at all.

Dr Zerden trained in vasectomy with Dr. Monteith in 2023. His training spanned over several months. During this time Dr. Zerden did more vasectomy procedures than some resident trainer do during a four year training cycle.

What makes a His Choice Vasectomy so great?

A vasectomy is a simple procedure designed to make it so you never get someone pregnant. Not all vasectomy procedures are alike.

Old-school vasectomy is also called traditional or conventional vasectomy. This requires the doctor to use a scalpel and make small incisions on each side of the scrotum. During conventional vasectomy a small section of each vas deferens is usually removed. Unfortunately patients usually have more pain with this type of vasectomy, a more difficult and prolonged recovery, and higher vasectomy failure rates.

His Choice No Cut Vasectomy is one of the newest vasectomy procedures. It is a minimally invasive vasectomy procedure…one single opening and nothing is removed from your body. You leave the office just the way you came in…or almost the way you came in!

His Choice Vasectomy is just as much a philosophy as it is an advancement in how vasectomy procedures are performed.

His Choice Vasectomy: The philosophy of vasectomy!

At His Choice Vasectomy, we do not discriminate against patients based on age, gender, or number of children.

his-choice-is-offerring-vasctomy-in-durhamMany vasectomy providers will only perform your vasectomy if you are a certain age. Some may not be as supportive depending on your gender. Many will be biased against you if you don’t have a certain minimum number of children.

At His Choice we only require you to be 21 years of age. We offer a supportive safe environment to have your vasectomy procedure and we dont require you have a minimum number of children. In fact, many of our patients dont have any children at all.

We also want to remove unnecessary barriers and make having a vasectomy easy.

One big way we do this is allow our patients to have single visit vasectomy procedures. Most doctors will require that you have two or three visits to complete your vasectomy.

The science of minimally invasive vasectomy!

During a His Choice Vasectomy:

  • NO needle is used to give anesthesia
  • NO scalpel is used to make an opening
  • NO thing is removed from your body
  • NO ice or frozen peas are required

His Choice is one of the most minimally invasive forms of vasectomy. This is a no needle vasectomy and no scalpel vasectomy. No part of your anatomy is removed and the vasectomy is performed in such a way as to have one of the lowest failure rates.

With a His Choice vasectomy you will be back on your feet in 48 hours and you can be confident you have had one of the best and newest vasectomy procedures around!
