Vasectomy Reversals

Vasectomy Reversals

A vasectomy is considered a permanent method of birth control. Vasectomy reversal is performed when you have had a vasectomy and now want to be fertile. A vasectomy reversal reconnects the tubes (vas deferens) that were cut or clipped during a vasectomy.

The surgery is more complicated and takes more time when blockage between the vas deferens and the epididymis requires correction. However, vasectomy reversal is usually an outpatient procedure without an overnight stay in the hospital. Spinal or general anesthesia is commonly used to ensure that you remain completely still during the surgery. Vasectomy reversals utilize an operating microscope and ultrafine sutures to reattach the inside and outside of the vas deferens.

The chances of vasectomy reversal success depend on how much time has passed between the vasectomy and the reversal. Over time, additional blockages can form, and some men develop antibodies to their own sperm. In fact, chances of a successful vasectomy reversal decline over time. Reversals are more successful during the first 10 years after vasectomy.

Dr. Nelson or Dr. Masson can help you to decide if a vasectomy reversal is right for you.
