What is a Vasectomy?
Considering a vasectomy? Here are a few facts you should know:
- The procedure is minimally invasive and is performed on an outpatient basis.
- Vasectomy has a very low risk of complications and patients are usually able to return to work in 1 to 2 days.
- A vasectomy will have no noticeable side effects for 98–99% of men.
- During the procedure, the vas deferens tube is clamped, cut, or sealed. This prevents sperm from being released during ejaculation. Sperm continues to be produced, but the sperm are reabsorbed into the body.
No Needle, No Scalpel Vasectomy
No Scalpel Vasectomy is every bit as effective as the traditional Vasectomy. No Scalpel Vasectomy is even less invasive than the minimally invasive scalpel vasectomy. This results in less discomfort, shorter recovery time, and an even lower rate of complications.
No Needle Vasectomy offers most patients another less-invasive treatment than traditional Vasectomy. Rather than using a needle to deliver local anesthesia, the No Needle Vasectomy uses a jet injector to numb the area. This eliminates any fear of needles and removes the pain of a needle injection.
No Needle and No Scalpel Vasectomy may be combined to maximize the benefits of each procedure.
