--- Offering the No-Needle Technique ---

Dr. Theodore Benderev founded nearly 10 years ago with the vision of educating the public using the Internet about the important role of vasectomy and vasectomy reversal.

In his practice in Southern California, Dr. Benderev performs the gentler No-Needle, No-Scalpel Vasectomy and Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals. Unlike many practices providing group consultations, he continues to provide a private consultation in a comfortable, professional setting. He is one of the first physicians in the United States to use the No-Needle anesthesia technique of vasectomies for his patients. He is an accomplished surgeon who truly appreciates taking care of his patients. Dr. Benderev is the author of many scientific articles and has lectured extensively on various Urology topics.

The staff at Dr. Benderev's practice are known for their caring nature. Their experience with over 2000 of Dr. Benderev's vasectomy patients helps to assure that all new patients are treated in the most gentle manner. Dr. Benderev's staff takes great pride in the fact that so many patients from Orange and adjacent counties refer many of their friends and family to him for their vasectomy and reversals.
