Vasectomy is a surgical procedure performed to make a man sterile or unable to father a child. It's a permanent male birth control measure.
A vasectomy is a simple process and is outpatient surgery. The Vas Deferens – the small tube that carries sperm from the scrotum – is closed off so that no sperm is contained in the ejaculation.
“Urologist” takes exceptional care of our vasectomy patients. A complete vasectomy – consultation to operation – can all be performed in a single day. The operation itself only takes about 15 to 30 minutes. If the patient prefers, they may receive local anesthesia though, most procedures are carried out under local anesthetic, which means that the recovery is fast and the patient may resume daily activities quickly.
Both conventional and open ended techniques are available and will be discussed at the consultation. The doctor also provides all his patients tips and information on what to do during recovery to help speed up the healing process.
