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:
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 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.
