Undoing the “Snip”!
Over the past twenty-five years, no-scalpel vasectomy reversal has become a much more common procedure. Approximately 600,000 vasectomies are performed annually in the U.S.
In this overview of a vasectomy reversal Dr. Friedman shares that there are many reasons that men with vasectomies choose to undergo no-scalpel no-needle vasectomy reversals —
Some of them include the following: divorce, remarriage, unexpected loss of a child, improved economic conditions, the family’s decision to have another child, or the choice of a dual-career couple to begin a family.
Occasionally, the desire for a reversal many be due to medical conditions, such as persistent testicular pain resulting from long-term congestion following a vasectomy.
Significant advances in micro-surgical techniques, and the use of an operating microscope to increase the surgeon’s visualization, bring greater success and predictability in no-scalpel no-needle vasectomy reversal.
