Safe, Permanent Birth Control – Vasectomy in Sacramento

Dr. Chirag A. Patel specializes in no-scalpel vasectomies – fast, effective procedures with minimal discomfort.

If you have concerns about unwanted pregnancies, the most effective method of male contraception is the vasectomy. While the thought of a vasectomy might make many men cringe, it is actually a quick process that is performed in-office and requires minimal recovery time. Dr. Chirag A. Patel performs no-scalpel vasectomies from his practice in Sacramento, helping men achieve peace of mind in a comfortable and relaxing clinical environment.

What Are the Benefits of a No-Scalpel Vasectomy?

In addition to being faster and more comfortable than a standard vasectomy, there are several reasons why a no-scalpel vasectomy may be preferable if you have concerns about the procedure:

  • No incisions are made

  • No stitches are required

  • The procedure is performed in-office – no trip to a hospital or surgical center

  • Lower likelihood of complications

  • Patients can resume sexual activity quickly

  • Sex drive isn't affected

  • No scarring

  • No significant side effects

  • No-scalpel vasectomies are just as effective as traditional vasectomies

Vasectomy Procedure in Sacramento

Dr. Patel practices what is commonly known as "no-scalpel vasectomy" from his office in Sacramento. A no-scalpel vasectomy, also called a keyhole vasectomy, is a process that exposes both vasa deferentia and manually the transfer of sperm without the use of a scalpel or sutures. Full procedures can be as fast as 20 minutes from preparation to conclusion, but the average length of the full appointment is approximately 45 minutes.

Vasectomy Recovery in Sacramento

One of the most significant benefits of a no-scalpel vasectomy is its short recovery time – most normal activities may be resumed 48 hours after the procedure (though heavy lifting, strenuous activities, and sexual activity should be avoided for approximately 4-7 days). Most patients find that over-the-counter pain killers are sufficient to manage post-procedure discomfort.
