Benefits of a Private Vasectomy
We know that once you have made the decision to have a vasectomy, you do not want to wait months for the procedure. Going private means your vasectomy is completed without the wait.
We provide private vasectomies mid-week, giving you a full weekend of recovery, minimising the time you have to take off work.
A private vasectomy also means you do not have to undergo counselling which is mandatory in the NHS. Although we advise discussing your decision with your partner, the decision is confidential and ultimately yours.
Can I have my vasectomy reversed?
Reversing a vasectomy to restore fertility is possible for many men who have undergone the procedure. A vasectomy reversal isn’t always guaranteed to restore fertility. It’s often most effective within 10 years of the vasectomy. A vasectomy reversal is generally no longer available on the NHS.

What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a permanent minor operation that cuts and seals off the vas deferens. They are the tubes that carry sperm from your testicles to your penis. It is considered to be one of the most effective long term methods of contraception.
The process involves the severing of your vas deferens from your testicles. This means that there will be no sperm in your semen. Each vas deferens tube is cut, a small section is removed and the cut ends are then sealed or tied. The cuts in your skin are closed using dissolvable stitches or adhesive strips.
The non scalpel technique we favour has become more and more popular since the 1980’s. This is because there is often less bleeding and a faster recovery whilst being just as effective as a conventional vasectomy.
During a no-scalpel vasectomy (also referred to as a keyhole vasectomy), no incisions are made. Instead, the surgeon uses a hemostat (locking forceps with a sharp tip) to puncture through the skin of the scrotal sac.
Then, the skin is gently spread only until both vas deferens can be visualized. Because the puncture site is so small and is just through the skin, stitches are usually not required. This also means that the healing time is quicker than usual.
Vasectomy is 99.9% effective at Preventing Pregnancy
A vasectomy will not affect your sex drive, or your ability to have sex. The vasectomy procedure cuts the tubes that carry sperm. You will still have erections and produce the same amount of semen when you ejaculate.
The only difference is that your semen does not contain sperm. After the procedure, sperm will continue to be produced but is naturally re-absorbed by the body.
Summerfield Healthcare will only carry out a vasectomy using local anaesthetic and the process will take around 15 minutes.
For a couple of weeks after, most men experience discomfort and mild swelling. This can easily be managed with low dose painkillers.
Consultation, Paperwork & Booking
All patients who choose to have their vasectomy with Summerfield Healthcare will have access to all the relevant information before the procedure.
Vasectomies are considered permanent, as they are extremely difficult to reverse. We therefore make sure that you have the option to discuss with a member of our team your reasons for vasectomy. We can also discuss what the alternatives to this option are.
You will also be asked to complete a medical questionnaire and undergo a short medical assessment.
