No-Needle, No-Scalpel Vasectomy
The No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) was originally developed in China in the early 1970's by Dr. Li Shunqiang. It was found to greatly reduce complications found with standard vasectomies. Over 15 million men have undergone the NSV.
The No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) is unique in that there is no incision made in the scrotum. Instead, pointed forceps separate the layers of tissue through a single opening less than a quarter of an inch in diameter in the middle of the scrotum. This vasectomy procedure in Dr. Benderev’s hands generally takes less than 10 minutes. Recovery is faster than with the standard vasectomy. Bleeding, swelling, infection and other complications are generally less. So is the amount of resultant discomfort after the procedure. In fact, one study noted up to 4 times less infections and up to 20 times less bleeding. No skin stitches are needed and scarring is negligible.
No-Needle Anesthesia Vasectomy More recently, the No-Needle Vasectomy has been popularized as a highly effective means to deliver anesthesia to the vasectomy area without a needle. Dr. Benderev first brought this technique to California in approximately 2002.
Using a high pressure jet injector the anesthetic solution is passed into the vas with the sensation of a small rubber band like "flick". Most patients report the procedure of vasectomy with Dr. Benderev is pain free. The No Needle technique of anesthesia is used together with the No-Scalpel Vasectomy.
Physicians require additional training for these procedures and, therefore, you may choose to ask whether your physician has experience with them. For urologists, vasectomy is a natural extension of their other duties.
Dr. Benderev is the first known doctor to use the No-Needle Anesthesia Technique for vasectomies in California and has performed over 10,000 vasectomies.
