Vasectomy 10 Minute, No-Needle, No-Scalpel
With over a decade of experience, Dr. Pazona has performed a no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy for hundreds of men. Most of these office procedures are completed in under 10 minutes.
It's the disconnection of the vas deferens. This long tube carries sperm from each of the testicles to the seminal vesicles (organs which make semen or ejaculate fluid). Think of the vas deferens as the tunnel the swimmers take to get to the swimming pool. A vasectomy blocks the tunnel so that no swimmers ever reach the pool.
Dr. Pazona uses a needle-less device known as a Madajet used to inject lidocaine (a numbing medicine) through the skin and into the vas deferens. Not only does the injection hurt less than a needle, but it uses a very small amount of medication and this allows the procedure to be performed more quickly.
Next he'll use a delicate instrument to create a < 5 mm (smaller than a pencil eraser) hole in the skin of the scrotum. This technique decreases bleeding complications and allows the skin to heal without stitches.
The average time for me to perform the procedure is 6-7 minutes. Men with testicles that cling tightly to their body, have thick scrotal skin, or other anatomical variations may make a vasectomy more challenging. Expect to be in the office 30-45 minutes.
No, not completely, though the vast majority of men report less pain than anticipated. Most commonly patients report a dull ache in the groin and testicles at different times during the procedure.
We do offer nitrous oxide via the ProNox® system in our office. This is “laughing gas” like you’ve seen at the dentist’s office. Some men go completely asleep and others are still awake but less anxious. The medicine can have an amnesia effect (you forget what happened) even if you seem awake. Overall most men are happy they chose “the gas”. It is optional however and not covered by insurance.
A vasectomy does nothing to affect a man’s erections, sexual desire, male hormone levels, or sexual performance. Testosterone, the main male hormone, is made by the testicles and released into the blood stream without the help of the vas deferens. Remember, semen is made far away in the seminal vesicles and prostate. Erections are regulated by hormones, blood flow, and nerves.
No strenuous activity beyond walking for at least 3 days after the procedure. Some men decide to take it easy for up to 7 days after the procedure. Every body heals differently. Be smart and listen to your body for warning signs such as swelling of the scrotum and increased pain. And contact us with any questions or concerns.
You may resume sexual activity after 3 days however YOU MUST USE OTHER FORMS OF CONTRACEPTION UNTIL YOU HAVE A LEFT A SEMEN SAMPLE SHOWING NO SPERM.
A vasectomy is meant as a permanent form of contraception. If you or your partner are not certain, then I recommend holding off on the procedure. If you’ve had a vasectomy and desire more children, then a vasectomy reversal (vasovasostomy) can be performed. In this situation, Dr. Pazona would recommend you consult a urologist with expertise in vasectomy reversals. There are no guarantees that a reversal will lead to a natural pregnancy.
