Vasectomy is the most common form of permanent male birth control. It is a minor, office based procedure, which removes a portion of, and then closes off the vas deferens (the tubes that carry sperm from the testes). It takes about 15 minutes and has no effect on male sexual function. Urologists at Arizona Urology Specialists offer the latest vasectomy techniques.
The No-Scalpel technique is done with just a single puncture made in the scrotum and requires no suturing. The primary differences compared to conventional vasectomy is the less traumatic manner in which the vas deferens is controlled which results in less pain and fewer postoperative complications.
Please note: Not all office locations or physicians use the no scalpel technique. If you are specifically looking for this technique, please confirm with the office when your appointment is scheduled with your surgeon.
We were among the first urologists in Arizona to use the No-Needle anesthesia for the procedures. In No-Needle Vasectomy, a "hypospray" injector is used to instantly deliver a tiny stream of lidocaine (numbing liquid) solution through the skin. There is no needle used. The skin and vas deferens are instantly numb.
