Is No-Scalpel Vasectomy safe?
Most medical experts, including special panels convened by the National Institutes of Health and by the World Health Organization, have concluded that vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure. Vasectomy is surgery, and all surgery has some risks, such as bleeding and infection. But serious problems are uncommon at our Dallas clinic.
Can a No-Scalpel Vasectomy be reversed?
Yes, but reversal operations are expensive and not always successful. If you are thinking about reversal, perhaps vasectomy is not right for you.
How much does a vasectomy cost in Texas?
The cost for your vasectomy at Gentle Procedures Dallas is $585. You will need to provide a $100 deposit to schedule the procedure, with the remaining $485 due on the day of service, payable with cash or credit card. Please see the Vasectomy Costs page for more information on vasectomy pricing.
When can I start having sex again?
As soon as you are comfortable, after a minimum of seven days, but remember to use some other kind of birth control until your semen analysis confirms you are sterile.
How long will a No-Scalpel Vasectomy take?
The procedure itself takes under an hour. It is a simple procedure that can be performed in our procedure rooms in our Dallas clinic (rather than the hospital). After your procedure, we recommend that you have someone to drive you home, or that you extend your stay at our clinic to be sure that you are fully recovered before driving yourself home.
What are some potential benefits of open-ended vasectomy?
Open-ended vasectomy is where, once the vas tube is cut, the end from the testicle is left open (i.e. not cauterized), while the end of the tube leading to the penis is closed. Studies have suggested that this could be the ideal way to block the vas end. There may be less post-operative discomfort because there is no sudden pressure back-up to the testicles.
