What Is Vasectomy Surgery?

Vasectomy surgery is a permanent birth control method for men. It involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This procedure prevents sperm from reaching the semen that is ejaculated during sexual intercourse.

During a vasectomy surgery, the doctor makes one or two small incisions in the scrotum to access the vas deferens. Then, they cut, tie, or seal the tubes to prevent the sperm from passing through. The procedure usually takes about 20-30 minutes and can be performed under local anesthesia.

Preparing for Vasectomy Surgery

The first step in preparing for vasectomy surgery is to schedule a consultation with a doctor. During this consultation, your doctor will review your medical history and discuss any concerns or questions you may have. Your doctor will then explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have regarding the surgery. Our goal is to ensure that you enjoy total peace of mind during your time with us, so we’ll make every effort to put you at ease, answering any questions you might have and giving you a clear idea as to what you can expect to experience both during and after the procedure.

Your Vasectomy Experience

Before the vasectomy surgery, you’ll be given local anesthesia to numb the area. Your surgeon will then make one or two small incisions in the scrotum, which are typically less than one centimeter. Once the incisions are made, your surgeon will locate the vas deferens, which are the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra.

The surgeon will then cut and seal the vas deferens using a technique that was detailed for you during your initial consultation. After the vas deferens have been cut, your surgeon will close the incision with stitches or surgical glue. The entire procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete, and you’ll be able to return home as soon as it’s over.
