Where can I find no-scalpel vasectomy near me in Redding?

Dr. Patel has observed that many of his patients come from very far north to his Elk Grove Clinic. He has had many patients from Chico, Redding, Red Bluff, Eureka, and even a few from Oregon! These men are driving many hours to make the socially responsible decision to manage their family planning. While it is safe to drive back home after the procedure, each mile on the road increases the risk of a motor vehicle collision, flat tire, or other such complication. In an effort to help minimize some of this risk Dr. Patel will begin to do a monthly Vasectomy day in Redding. If there is enough volume this may increase in the future. Scheduling the procedure is the same as scheduling for our main clinic. Call our clinic 1-877-628-7647 (1-877-NCV-SNIP) or text/call Dr. Patel at 702-610-1296 or use the online scheduler below (you will receive a confirmation e-mail and can pay the $100 refundable deposit online).

Vasectomies are the most reliable form of male contraception available. While the procedure may seem daunting, there is a safer, faster alternative to the traditional vasectomy: the no-scalpel vasectomy.

Benefits of a No-Scalpel Vasectomy

No-scalpel vasectomies, commonly known as keyhole vasectomies or no-needle vasectomies, are highly effective male contraceptive solutions. No-scalpel vasectomies are not only faster than standard vasectomies, they also result in significantly lower levels of discomfort and pose a markedly reduced risk of complications. Here are a few other benefits of no-scalpel vasectomy:

  • Faster recovery times

  • No or barely detectible scarring

  • No stitches/sutures

  • Equally effective as a standard vasectomy

No-Scalpel Vasectomy Procedure in Redding

While the standard vasectomy and the no-scalpel vasectomy both achieve male contraception using the same principle – preventing the transfer of sperm from the testicles to the semen – they differ in that the no-scalpel vasectomy doesn't require incisions or stitches to close the surgical site.

The patient is anesthetized using an anesthesia spray, which numbs the tissues of the scrotum without using a needle. The surgeon then accesses the vas deferens with a tool called a surgical dissecting clamp, which creates an opening just large enough to allow the surgeon to perform the procedure, but small enough to heal without sutures.

No-Scalpel Vasectomy Recovery in Redding

The recovery process is fast and comfortable for the vast majority of patients. Normal, non-strenuous activities may be resumed approximately 48 hours from the time of the procedure, and sexual activity may be resumed after 4-5 days, though contraception should be used until screening confirms the absence of sperm in the patient's sample.
