Did you know that a vasectomy reversal can be performed successfully up to 15 years after a vasectomy has been performed? It is important to go to a physician that is experienced in performing vasectomy reversals. It is also important to make sure the female partner is healthy and doesn’t have any fertility problems.
During a vasectomy reversal, the ends of the vas deferens (tubes sperm travel through during ejaculation) are put back together to bypass the blocked portion. This returns sperm to the man’s ejaculate in the vast majority of cases. The unique aspect of this surgery is the size of the repair needed. In general, the vas deferens is repaired with a suture that is smaller than a human hair. It requires skill in using an operating microscope or robotic surgery. The size of the tube sperm travel through is similar to the period at the end of this sentence. It is important to find someone who has been fellowship trained in this procedure for the best chance of success.
To schedule an appointment to see if you or your partner is a good candidate for vasectomy reversal, call 614-293-9253.
