Vasectomy & Reversals
A vasectomy is one treatment option for possible permanent sterilization for patients and their spouse who are absolutely sure that they no longer desire any further children. It is a relatively simple in office procedure that is typically performed under local anesthetic and well tolerated. The option of sedation is available for patients who are very apprehensive about the possibility of local anesthetic. This is performed in a discreet and comfortable in office procedure with overall low risks and allows patients the ability to have the confidence of permanent sterilization for those patients who no longer desire any further children.
Second Chances: Vasectomy Reversal
Many men successfully undergo vasectomy for permanent birth control. While a routine, safe procedure, it has traditionally been considered irreversible. Newer surgical techniques and improved surgical equipment have turned the tables on this assumption.
A.M.P. Urology has a sophisticated microscope capable of binocular, three-dimensional magnification of the tiny vas deferens. This allows physicians to re-connect the sperm-carrying channel and restore natural fertility. The procedure is done in the office or at most hospitals, with a mild IV anesthetic and takes approximately 2-3 hours. Recovery is similar to a vasectomy and men are encouraged to take 1 week off from work and avoid exercise and strenuous activity for 4 weeks.
A.M.P. Urology has several Physicians including: Dr. Block, Dr. Kaye, Dr. Pavlov-Shapiro and Dr. Sauer which are available to counsel couples on the vasectomy reversal procedure.
