Single Mini-incision Vasectomy Reversal
I perform vasectomy reversal in my surgical center, under general anesthesia, and through a single, small incision in the center of the scrotum. Most patients can schedule surgery over the phone, have a pre-operative appointment with me the first day and their surgery the second day. The procedure is done under magnification using fine 9-0 sutures and takes 1.5 to 3 hours to complete. Patients have their follow-up visit the day after their surgery and are then free to return home. Patients can return to work in 3 to 5 days and resume sexual activity after 2 weeks.
Vasectomy reversal can be successful in up to 90% of cases and the time since the vasectomy is the most important predictor of the success of vasectomy reversal.
I would like all potential patients considering vasectomy reversal with me to be aware of the following:
I am board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Obstetricians and Gynecologists are physicians who, by virtue of satisfactory completion of an accredited program of graduate medical education, possess special knowledge, skills and professional capability in the medical and surgical care of women related to pregnancy and disorders of the female reproductive system. I am not a urologist.
I completed a formal one week microsurgical training course at the Cleveland Clinic. I have been performing female sterilization reversal since 2008.
I sought additional training in vasectomy and vasectomy reversal through one-on-one professional mentorships. I have performed minimally invasive vasectomy since 2007 and I began offering minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in 2014.
I perform minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in my in-office operating room under general anesthesia. I only perform vasovasostomy (end to end connections) vasectomy reversal and do not perform vasoepididymostomy (vas deferens to epididymis) by-pass procedures. The majority of reversals can be successfully performed as vasovasostomy procedures.
It is difficult to predict preoperatively who will require a vasoepididymostomy procedure. Men who have had vasectomy greater than 10 years are more at risk for requiring vasoepididymostomy and should consider having reversal with a Urologist who is fellowship trained in performing vasoepididymostomy procedures.
I offers office consultations for patients who are considering vasectomy reversal at A Personal Choice to discuss concerns about vasectomy reversal.
