Overview of a No-Scalpel Open Ended Vasectomy.
For many years, the vasectomy has been a safe and popular option for couples who no longer want children.
Having a vasectomy is a highly reliable and cost-effective method of male birth control. Having a vasectomy is far more easier on the male body than a woman having her tubes tied. Traditionally, this procedure would require shaving and an incision in the scrotum, stitches, and some degree of post-operative discomfort.
NSV Specialists Dr. Conners and Dr. Kacker of MetroWest Urology now offers a new innovative treatment with our open-ended, no-scalpel vasectomy. The microsurgery is much less than a traditional surgery with far less complications and pain.
What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a permanent male birth control method. A specialized NSV (No Scalpel Vasectomy) micro-surgeon who is trained in advanced vasectomy (male sterilization) involves
surgically cutting the tubes that transport sperm from the testicles to the penis. The tubes that are cut only carry sperm. After your vasectomy you will ejaculate as normal- just without
the sperm itself. The only way to tell if sperm is in your ejaculation is through a microscope. Everything will look and feel normal. With the open-ended technique we do not block or “tie”
the tubes. We leave them open. This reduces swelling, pain, and other complications that you might have with the traditional method. Sperm simply absorbs itself back into the body.
We do not use scalpels. A surgical scalpel is not needed in a no-scalpel vasectomy. Instead our doctors will use small micro tools to cut the tubes. With no scalpel, you will have much less pain, bleeding and bruising.
Most patients have little to no pain with our vasectomy technique. However, we do also offer Nitrous anesthesia in our office for additional pain and anxiety relief during the procedure.
What can I expect with a micro-surgery vasectomy?
No Scalpel Vasectomy – Nothing accept the anesthetic solution goes into the patient! Instead of a scalpel, a pen sized jet is used to spray the solution on. It feels like a thump on the skin- it is much less invasive and involves lower risk and less complications.
This same spray techniques has been used for decades with other types of surgeries such as what a dentist might use.
New technology has made this no scalpel vasectomy even more attractive. The anesthesia administered is more precise and the numb feeling works right away.
We specialize in the open-ended vasectomy procedure, which minimizes chronic post procedure pain.
The procedure takes about 10 minutes.
We accept national and international vasectomy and vasectomy reversal patients from Brazil and other countries worldwide.
We have interpreters for Portuguese and Spanish speaking patients. View more on what to expect with a no-scalpel vasectomy procedure.
