Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Expect?
The surgery is done in our office and only takes about 10 minutes, but expect to be there for up to one hour. Patients are able to drive themselves home. Generally there is no follow up appointment required. You will be instructed to drop off a sperm sample after 3-4 months. It's that simple.

What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a safe and highly effective form of permanent contraception for men. It is an operation which interrupts the two passages which carry sperm away from the testicles. Seminal fluid continues to be produced but no longer contains sperm, eliminating the risk of pregnancy.

What is different about a No-Scalpel Vasectomy?
No-Scalpel Vasectomy is a refined approach for locating and blocking the passages (vas deferens) that carry sperm. Developed in China in 1974, NSV relies on two specialized instruments designed to make this procedure simpler and safer to perform. Done through a tiny puncture rather than through two incisions, skin stitches are not required. The operation is done in the office and usually takes only ten minutes to perform. A study comparing NSV to conventional vasectomy showed a lower complication rate with NSV while providing an equally high success rate.
