Non-Scalpel Vasectomy is a simple, safe surgical procedure for permanent male fertility control. Using a single puncture technique in the scrotum, the Tube (called a “vas”) which leads from the testicle is cut and sealed to stop sperm from leaving. The puncture seldom requires suturing or stitches. The procedure usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes and is performed as an out-patient procedure in the Doctor’s surgery under local anaesthetic injection.
Since the procedure simply interrupts the delivery of sperm, it does not change hormonal function – leaving sexual drive and potency unaffected.
The primary difference between non-scalpel vasectomy compared to the conventional vasectomy is that the vas deferens is controlled and grasped in a less traumatic manner. This results in less pain and fewer postoperative complications.
The non-scalpel technique is simply a more elegant and less traumatic way to control the vas and proceed with sperm flow interruption.
