Q | what is a vasectomy?
A | Vasectomy is the procedure of choice for men who do not want to father any children (or any additional children). It is indicated for any fully informed man and can be carried out as an outpatient procedure. If the patient has previous scrotal surgery or has any other possible complicating factors (e.g. a needle phobia), the procedure can be carried out under a short general anaesthetic. The no-scalpel vasectomy (NSV) is an innovative approach to exposing the vas deferens tubes in the scrotum using 2 specialized surgical instruments. NSV, as compared to traditional incision technique, resulted in less bleeding and hematoma, less infection, and pain, and a shorter operative time.
