No-scalpel vasectomies at our clinic provide a virtually painless alternative to conventional vasectomy using a scalpel. Studies show that no-scalpel vasectomies have a complication rate eight times lower than conventional approaches and involve less discomfort – especially when coupled with no-needle anesthesia, as we do.
Gentle Procedures Clinic is a leader in the introduction of the no scalpel and no needle vasectomy surgical procedure. Our surgical team has world-class training and support, and we are proud to operate at the highest standard of surgical excellence.

You can schedule a consultation or just book your procedure directly with a consultation session at the same appointment.
Open-Ended Type Vasectomy
The procedure we perform is an “Open-Ended” vasectomy technique, where the vas tube from the bottom end is left open (uncauterized), while the end of the tube leading to the penis is cauterized. As detailed above, fascial interposition is also performed to ensure the success of your vasectomy.
While studies are not conclusive, it is postulated that leaving one end open may permit sperm to leak out, resulting in less post-operative discomfort; this is because there is no sudden pressure back-up to the testicles. The leakage does not increase risk of pregnancy, as the other end of the vas is sealed. Sperm are simply reabsorbed back into the testicles in a natural process that causes no pain or pressure.
Studies also indicate that it reduces the time it takes for a vasectomy, and vasectomy reversal may also be easier to perform later, if desired. We do not recommend getting a vasectomy if you think you may eventually want a reversal. You should consider vasectomy as a permanent contraceptive method.
Not all vasectomists around the world perform this open ended technique, and some prefer to cauterize both ends. At Gentle Procedures Dallas our doctor is able to maintain our high success rates while also offering the potential benefits of an Open-Ended vasectomy.
The open-ended technique, as part of No-Scalpel, No-Needle Vasectomy at the Gentle Procedures DFW clinic location, is Dr. McAuliff’s preferred method to provide world class care.
