Keyhole procedure. Once you have made the decision to have a vasectomy, you don’t want to wait months to have the procedure.

Going private for your procedure means you can arrange it at a time convenient for you – if you wish to discuss the procedure before your appointment we can also offer a consultation appointment with our surgeon.

Vasectomy is 99.9% effective at preventing pregnancy and our non-scalpel keyhole technique causes less bleeding and a faster recovery.

What does the procedure entail?

A vasectomy is a permanent minor operation which cuts off the vas deferens (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 splitting the tubes and sealing each end to stop the flow of sperm into your semen, the cuts in your skin are then closed using dissolvable stitches.

The non-scalpel technique has become popular since the 1980s as it causes less bleeding and a faster recovery. Also referred to as a ‘keyhole vasectomy’ the surgeon uses locking forceps to puncture a small hole through the skin.

  • Simple, fast procedure

Summerfield Healthcare provide regular vasectomy clinics in Wolverhampton and our Consultant will also offer the service in Shrewsbury from January 2021.

How long will recovery take?

Your vasectomy will be carried out using local anaesthetic and will take around 15 minutes. 

Easily managed with low dose painkillers, most men experience minor discomfort and mild swelling for a couple of weeks. 

Depending on your occupation, most men need less than 2 days before returning to work but should avoid heavy lifting or sports for at least one week. 

How will a vasectomy affect my sex drive?

A vasectomy will not affect your sex drive or ability to have sex. You will still be able to have erections and produce the same amount of semen when you ejaculate. 

Your body will still continue to produce sperm, but this will be naturally be reabsorbed by the body. 

Can it be reversed?

A vasectomy is considered to be permanent, as they are very difficult to reverse. A vasectomy reversal is not generally available on the NHS. 

However, reversing a vasectomy to restore fertility is possible for many men who have undergone the procedure. A vasectomy reversal is not always guaranteed to restore fertility and is often most effective within 10 years of the vasectomy.

We do offer a consultation appointment with our surgeon if you wish to discuss the procedure and its effects beforehand. We will not be able to undertake your procedure on the same day as your consultation.
