No-Scalpel vasectomy is a permanent surgical sterilization procedure intended for fully informed men who no longer wish to have children. This brief procedure is done as an outpatient under local anesthesia, and takes approx. 10-20 minutes to complete. It involves the use of a small hemostat, which enters the scrotum and allows the surgeon to access the vas deferens.
A small portion of the Vas deferens is then removed, sealed, and re-introduced into its original location. The result is a blockage of the vas deferens, which simply prevents the sperm from reaching the ejaculate. This leaves the male hormones and the testes unaffected. As a result, you or a loved one can expect to have no change in sexual drive, potency, or the ability to ejaculate after the procedure is complete. When compared to the traditional vasectomy, the no-scalpel procedures offers the benefits of a shorter completion time, less discomfort, and a reduced chance of bleeding and infection.
The average recovery time for this minimally invasive procedure typically lasts between 3-5 days. If you or a loved one is interested in learning more about this procedure, please do not hesitate to schedule a consultation by clicking “here”.
