Dr. Monteith performs minimally invasive vasectomy reversal. This vasectomy reversal procedure utilized by Dr. Monteith applies the same minimally invasive techniques used during No scalpel vasectomy; one small opening in the skin that does not require skin sutures to close.
During a minimally invasive vasectomy reversal a single opening less than 3 cm is created in the center of the scrotum using a no-scalpel dissector. The entire vasectomy reversal is performed through this opening and very often sutures are not required to close this opening.
As a result of a single, smaller opening not requiring sutures patients will often report minimal discomfort after reversal.
Success of reversing vasectomy
The success of vasectomy reversal is mostly determined by the length of time since having the vasectomy procedure. Although vasectomy reversal success rates can be as high as 97% for men who have reversal within the first several years of having a vasectomy, the average success of vasectomy reversal is approximately 85% among all reversal procedures.
About Dr. Monteith and Vasectomy Reversal
Dr. Monteith is 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. Dr. Monteith is not a board certified urologist.
Dr. Monteith completed a formal one week microsurgical training course at the Cleveland Clinic.
He has been performing female sterilization reversal since 2008.
Dr. Monteith sought additional training in vasectomy and vasectomy reversal through one-on-one professional mentorships.
Dr. Monteith has performed minimally invasive vasectomy since 2007 and began offering minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in 2014.
Dr. Monteith performs minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in his in-office operating room under general anesthesia.
He performs vasovasostomy (end to end connections) vasectomy reversal but does not perform vasoepididymostomy (vas deferens to epididymis) by-pass procedures. The majority of reversals (over 93%) can be successfully performed as vasovasostomy procedures.
It is difficult to predict who will require a vasoepididymostomy procedure before surgery.
Men who have had vasectomy greater than 10 years are more at risk for requiring vasoepididymostomy by-pass procedure and should consider having reversal with a Urologist who is fellowship trained in performing vasoepididymostomy procedures.
