Vasectomy is an excellent form of permanent birth control. This is a 30 minute office procedure performed under local anesthesia. We offer prescription sedation to all men if desired. The procedure is well tolerated.
We recommend allowing the surgical area healing time of 10 days with no lifting or straining. We have detailed instructions about the healing process and the necessary down time. We suggest a semen sample be collected after 15 to 20 ejaculations to clear the ejaculation fluid of sperm. The sample can be dropped off at the office so we can make sure the vasectomy worked before discontinuing birth control. We have performed over four thousand vasectomies in the past 30+ years.
