It's Not Just A Vasectomy

It’s 2019. Your balls are as important as they have ever been. And if you really care about them you shouldn’t let anyone with a knife or a needle near you if you have a choice. The gold standard in my humble opinion is a No Needle, No scalpel vasectomy. The advantages of the jet injector include patient comfort, use of less anesthetic in a more efficient and near-instantaneous fashion and precision. The No Scalpel instruments make the procedure easier for the patient and the surgeon.

The pre-op appointment is important and the doctor should discuss the procedure and the potential complications with you. You should have all of your questions answered. 50% of all marriages end in divorce. Shouldn’t you be counseled about this and the potential implications for future fertility (One never knows what life has in store). The post vasectomy semen analysis is critical. You and your doctor need to know that the procedure was effective. I’m satisfied with my vasectomy. Don’t you want to be satisfied with yours?

Vasectomy Checklist

  • Make sure your doctor is a board-certified Urologist.
  • Beware any doctor who says oh it’s just a vasectomy.
  • It’s important for your doctor to have experience but if they do the
  • procedure wrong every time it doesn’t help.
  • Surgeons who brag about how fast they can do a procedure make me nervous. The procedure should be done carefully and with you completely anesthetized.
  • Your procedure shouldn’t involve a knife or a needle.
  • You should be counseled on what to expect before and after the procedure.
  • You should sign the state consent at least 72 hours prior to the procedure and bring it with you.
  • You should be comfortable with the surgeon you choose.
With that said, I wish you the best of luck and would love to be your doctor!
