So You’re Thinking about Vasectomy…

Vasectomy is a method of permanent contraception for men.  Across the world, vasectomy is becoming a more and more popular form of contraception. Vasectomy is simple, permanent, and highly effective.  Vasectomy Ireland practices a no-needle, no-scalpel technique.

Why a no-scalpel vasectomy?

Vasectomy is simply a process of accessing the vasa (the tubes that carry sperm from the testes), and dividing these tubes. Traditionally, the vas tubes were accessed by cutting into the scrotum with a scalpel. The no-scalpel technique has been shown to have fewer complications and improved recovery time.  The no-scalpel technique is also the recommended method for vasectomy by the American Urology Association.

About Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a method of permanent contraception for men. The procedure involves blocking the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles. The traditional technique is to make an incision in the front of the scrotum, to pull the tubes up through the incision, and to cut the tubes. With the no-scalpel method, the physician makes a small puncture in the front of the scrotum and gently draws the vas tubes through the small puncture. Using the modern no-scalpel technique, there is much less chance of complications and the patient usually feels much more comfortable.
