Vasectomy Procedure Types

Vasectomy, men's health and well-being. Black chalk board with textIf you’re considering a vasectomy, you’ve taken the first step towards a worry-free future regarding family planning. A vasectomy is a highly effective and permanent form of contraception. To help you make an informed decision, let’s explore the two primary vasectomy procedure types offered at HTX Urology: The Traditional Vasectomy and the No-Scalpel Vasectomy.

Traditional Vasectomy

The Traditional Vasectomy is a well-established method that involves the following aspects:

  • Incision with Scalpel: In this approach, a small incision is made in the scrotum. This incision allows access to the vas deferens, where they are cut, sealed, or obstructed.
  • Effective and Proven: Traditional vasectomy has a long history of effectiveness, with a success rate of over 99% in preventing pregnancy.
  • Recovery Period: Recovery typically involves a few days of rest and avoiding strenuous activities.

No-Scalpel Vasectomy Procedure

The No-Scalpel Vasectomy Procedure is another advanced technique that provides a less invasive and more comfortable experience for patients. Here are some key highlights:

  • No Scalpel: As the name suggests, there’s no scalpel involved. Instead, a small puncture is made to access the vas deferens, reducing the potential for complications.
  • Minimal Discomfort: This procedure is often associated with minimal pain and discomfort, with a shorter recovery time compared to traditional vasectomies.
  • Swift Procedure: The no-scalpel vasectomy is generally a quicker procedure, taking less time compared to traditional methods.
