A vasectomy is a brief, surgical sterilization procedure for men that is permanent and nearly 100 percent effective. Typically done using local anesthetic, vasectomies can be performed without an injection (no-needle vasectomy) and without the use of a scalpel (no-scalpel vasectomy).

The vasectomy procedure can be completed in less than half an hour and post-surgical pain typically lasts only a few days. In addition, many health-insurance programs cover the cost of a vasectomy.

A vasectomy reversal is possible and involves microsurgery. Given the complexity of the procedure, working with a urologist that specializes in vasectomy reversals is highly recommended.
