Vasectomy - Overview

Overview | Education | FAQ

Overview

The vasectomy is a simple office procedure in which a segment of the tubes carrying the sperm from the testicles is removed, and the ends are sealed off. The procedure is performed under a local anesthetic and only takes about ten minutes. A scalpeless vasectomy uses a technique in which an incision is not made. Most men eagerly admit that the procedure is less painful than a visit to the dentist's office. Furthermore, the only medication necessary afterward for the discomfort is a mild anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. In order to minimize the discomfort and complications, it is important to stay off your feet for one to two days after the procedure. Most instances of complications from vasectomies occur because of too much activity following the procedure.
