Looking After Men's Urogenital Health


MURAC Health uses the combined skills of a Urologist and a Plastic Surgeon to solve complex problems that men experience with their urogenital system.  


Vasectomy Reversal

There are some men who have undergone a vasectomy who decide that they wish to have more children. Vasectomy reversal can also sometimes provide pain relief for some of the small number of men who suffer post-vasectomy pain. 

Although a vasectomy is considered a permanent form of male contraception, advances in medical technology and surgical practice have meant a high rate of success in vasectomy reversal procedures.   

There are two types of vasectomy reversal surgical procedures: 

  • Vasovasostomy - the severed ends of the tubes (the vas deferens) are sewn back together using several different surgical approaches. A microsurgical technique is used, in which a microscope helps magnify the surgical area.  
  • Vasoepididymostomy - the tubes (the vas deferens) are surgically reattached directly to the epididymis, a tube near the testicles that stores and carries sperm. This procedure is more difficult to perform and is used when vasovasostomy cannot be performed or does not work. Microscopic techniques are critical for the success of this procedure.  

Pain after reversal surgery is usually not severe and can be controlled with mild pain relievers. Most patients return to work and resume normal non-strenuous activities within a week, but patients may need to refrain from heavy lifting and other rigorous physical activities for up to 4 weeks following surgery. Patients should wait 2 - 4 weeks before having sex.

It generally takes around 2 months for sperm to reappear following vasovasostomy, and around 3 - 6 months following vasoepididymostomy. Either a stabilised sperm count, or pregnancy, indicates successful reversal surgery.

Our Difference

Our unique difference is that we approach men's health issues by combining two medical specialities - reconstructive Urology and Plastic Surgery. This approach is rare and MURAC Health is known for successfully dealing with complex issues relating to the penis and urethra that are often very hard to treat.    

Our surgeons are highly sought after for vasectomy reversal cases as they use combined knowledge and microsurgical techniques from both Urology and Plastics, key factors for success rate.

At your first MURAC Health consultation, you will meet with Dr Ajay Chauhan and Dr Justin Chee who will discuss your current health status and history to determine the best treatment plan for you.
