Vasectomy Reversal Information
Vasectomy-Reversal.org is here to help you get information about vasectomy reversals and find the right surgeon for your reversal. Vasectomy reversals are about more than just the surgery, it's about your success to conceive after the surgery and your comfort before, during and after the surgery.
The Vasectomy -
A vasectomy is a relatively simple, surgical sterilization procedure for men. An estimated 600,000 vasectomies are performed in the U.S. each year. The vas deferens is a long spaghetti-like tube that transports the sperm from the testicles. The vasectomy is often done in the doctor's office as a relatively quick, minor procedure using local numbing medicine though with little or no sedation.
The Vasectomy Reversal -
A Vasectomy Reversal is a challenging surgery where the scarred ends of the vas are microsurgically reconnected in multiple layers under a high-powered surgical microscope. This allows sperm to flow again through the vas. An estimated 30,000 to 40,000 or more men each year change their minds and want to restore their fertility with a reversal. Regardless of how many years have passed since the vasectomy, microsurgical vasectomy reversal in the hands of an experienced microsurgeon is proven to be the most logical and least expensive way to achieve pregnancy.
Asking Questions -
Don't trust your reversal to just any doctor that does not specialize in Vasectomy Reversals, anymore than you would trust leaving your child in the care of a homeless person. They might be safe, but would you take that chance. Ask your vasectomy reversal surgeon the right questions.
