When you are done building your family, a vasectomy may be the choice for you. The vasectomy procedure is an in-office, minimally invasive birth control option for men. Studies show that a vasectomy is over 99% effective at preventing future pregnancies, making it the most effective form of birth control. Vasectomies will not change hormonal (testosterone) function, so it won't affect your sex drive.

Our physicians offer conventional vasectomy and no-scalpel vasectomy as in-office procedures. Patients can go home immediately after the procedure, and after a few days of light activity, can resume a normal routine, including sexual activity.

A vasectomy is a permanent and effective means for preventing pregnancy. A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure that cuts the vas deferens, the tube that brings sperm from the testes, where it is made, to the penis during ejaculation. This is a permanent form of birth control for men. Vasectomies can be reversible; however, it is not advisable to have one if you think you may change your mind at a later date.

The Procedure

A vasectomy works by cutting the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the penis. This prevents the sperm from exiting the penis during ejaculation. After a vasectomy, your body will continue to produce sperm, but they will die and be re-absorbed. A vasectomy will not noticeably affect the seminal fluid; your ejaculate will still look and feel the same. A vasectomy also will not affect your testosterone (male hormone) levels or your ability to have an erection.
