No-Scalpel Vasectomy in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania (PA)

Sharp instruments near your groin might make you apprehensive, so if you’re seeking a vasectomy but are uncomfortable with incisions down there, the no-scalpel method is the best solution.

How a no-scalpel vasectomy is performed

The no-scalpel vasectomy is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient-basis. Your surgeon touches the scrotum to feel for the vas deferens (the tubes that transport sperm) and holds them in place. Your surgeon then injects a local anesthetic using a tiny needle to completely numb the site. A small hole is opened on the scrotum with sharp forceps, then stretched out so your vas deferens can be pulled through. Your vas deferens is then severed, cauterized and closed with two titanium clips.

Recovery after surgery

Like a traditional vasectomy, you will experience some temporary pain, mild discomfort, bruising and swelling after the procedure. You’ll need to use ice packs for the first 36 hours to minimize swelling. Recovery time  is typically five days, and you’ll need to avoid strenuous physical activity.  You may resume work after two days (unless your job involves heavy lifting).

You will need to refrain from sexual activity until you are completely healed. Also, you will not be sterile right away, so you will need to use secondary forms of birth control until your doctor verifies that your sperm count is zero.

Costs

No-scalpel vasectomies are generally covered by insurance. Your total out-of-pocket cost depends on your deductible, doctor visit co-pays and co-insurance. For those without insurance, you’ll need to talk to your doctor concerning costs.
