No-needle, No-Scalpel Vasectomy – A Permanent, Minimally-Invasive Male Fertility Solution
Northern California Vasectomy offers safe, outpatient no-scalpel vasectomy as a highly effective family planning tool.
Vasectomy is the most reliable form of male contraception available, yet many men are hesitant to undergo the procedure because of concerns about the surgical aspect. Fortunately, there is a safer, faster, and less painful alternative to standard vasectomy: no-scalpel vasectomy.
No-scalpel vasectomy, also commonly referred to as no-needle vasectomy or keyhole vasectomy, is the technique preferred by most urologists and male reproductive health and medicine experts. Approximately 500,000 men in the United States elect to undergo vasectomies every year – a number that could potentially increase with greater education about no-scalpel vasectomy. Unlike conventional vasectomies, the no-scalpel vasectomy doesn’t require incisions or sutures. This means that there is minimal – if any – scarring, reduced recovery time, and a markedly lower risk of infection and complications.
Vasectomy achieves male sterilization by diverting the vas deferens, thereby preventing the transfer of sperm from the testicles. The no-scalpel method achieves access to the vas deferens ducts through the use of a surgical dissecting clamp, a tool that creates a tiny opening in the skin of the scrotum. The opening allows the surgeon to visualize the ducts, dissect them, and reposition them without the use of a scalpel.
Recovery after a no-scalpel vasectomy is typically brief – patients can expect to resume normal activities approximately 48 hours post-procedure. While there will be some pain after the anesthetic wears off, this can be successfully reduced with over-the-counter pain killers and an ice pack on the surgical site. It is important to avoid strenuous activity for at least three days after a no-scalpel vasectomy (if you have a job that requires heavy lifting or other physical exertion, you may want to either schedule your procedure immediately before taking time off of work or a long weekend).
While most men experience absolutely no reduction in sexual desire or potency (some men even report an increase), it is important to use birth control during sexual intercourse until a screening indicates no sperm is present in the semen sample.
A 45-minute procedure will cost $590. We accept the following insurance plans:
