The No-Scalpel Vasectomy Over 500,000 vasectomy vasectomy sex are done each year in the United States. Vasectomy is a simple, safe surgical procedure for permanent male fertility control.
The procedure usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes. The No-Scalpel vasectomy is a technique used to do the vasectomy through one single puncture. The puncture is made in the scrotum and requires no suturing or stitches. The primary difference compared to the conventional vasectomy is that the vas deferens is controlled and grasped by the surgeon in a less traumatic manner. This results in less pain and fewer postoperative complications. The actual interruption of the vas which is done with the No-Scalpel technique is identical to the interruption used with conventional techniques. The No-Scalpel technique is simply a more elegant and less traumatic way for the surgeon to control the vas and proceed with its interruption.
As with any surgical procedure, the primary risks of vasectomy are infection and bleeding. These risks are generally low for this procedure. It is also important that each patient understand that vasectomy is approached as an irreversible procedure. While vasectomy can be reversed surgically at times, its successful reversal cannot be guaranteed.
Also important is the fact that the vas deferens can grow back together on its own. The testes still produce sperm, but the sperm die and are absorbed by the body. Since the ejaculate is mostly seminal fluid its volume decreases only very, very little after a vasectomy. The level of male hormone remains the same and all sexual characteristics remain the same. Ability to have an erection is also entirely unchanged.
