A male vasectomy at Moorgate Andrology is performed by a fully qualified Urologist. It is performed on an out-patient basis which means you can leave the clinic or hospital shortly after the procedure.
Most male Vasectomy procedures can be performed under local anaesthetic. It may be possible to carry the procedure out under sedation if you wish, although this is likely to be a little more expensive. Much depends on your personal preference and how nervous you are about getting it done. You can discuss the type of anaesthesia in your case with the Urologist at your consultation.
In a local anaesthesia procedure, the local anaesthetic is injected into the scrotum to numb the area where the surgeon will operate. This should minimise any discomfort during the procedure. You will still feel some tugging and pulling in the area during the procedure, but not any pain. If you feel any undue discomfort you will be given more local anaesthetic.
In a conventional male vasectomy, after the injection of the local anaesthetic, a small cut is made in the scrotum from which the Surgeon will access the vas deferens. He will then cut the vas deferens and remove a small piece of it. The two ends are then tied and secured with a stitch. This procedure is repeated for the other vas deferens through the same incision. Sometimes the Surgeon may need to make a second incision to reach this other vas deferens.
