Is No-Scalpel Vasectomy Right for You?

No-scalpel vasectomy is an innovative minimally invasive approach to permanent sterilization (birth control) for men.

Advantages of no-scalpel vasectomy include

  1. a very small skin opening that allows the surgeon to get access to the vas deferens and to ligate it;
  2. No scalpel vasectomy is associated with less pain
  3. Less blood loss
  4.  Faster recovery than a traditional open vasectomy.
  5. While the risk of infection is small with a traditional vasectomy, it is even lower with no-scalpel vasectomy.

In our practice at New York Urology Specialists, the great majority of men are candidates for no-scalpel vasectomy.  In fact, more than 95% of men are able to undergo a no-scalpel vasectomy.

A small number of men who had extensive scrotal surgery in the past such as hydrocelectomy or orchiopexy may require traditional open vasectomy.

Men who had scrotal trauma with a significant amount of residual swelling and fibrosis (scarring) may also require to have a traditional vasectomy.  Even for men who had previous scrotal surgery more than 50% of the time, we are able to perform “no-scalpel” vasectomy.

Do I have to Travel to China to Get a No-Scalpel Vasectomy?

While Dr. Li Shunqiang of China invented the procedure, the method of no-scalpel vasectomy has been imported and successfully reproduced in the US.  No-Scalpel vasectomy has been successfully practiced at New York Urology Specialists for many years with hundreds of success stories.

While there are many reasons to visit China, no-scalpel vasectomy does not have to be one of them.
