Vasectomy Reversal

Reversing a vasectomy helps patients experience the joy of fatherhood again.

A vasectomy reversal surgery is performed when a man has had a vasectomy, and now wishes to have children. Vasectomy reversal reconnects the tubes, called the vas deferens, that were cut during a vasectomy.

What to Expect with Vasectomy Reversal Surgery

A vasectomy reversal is performed under local anaesthetic combined with light general anaesthesia, which ensures a safe procedure. The procedure begins with a small incision made over the old vasectomy site. The two ends of the vas deferens are identified, freed from the surrounding scar tissue and then reconnected.

Chances for success depend on many factors including the method of vasectomy that was done and, most importantly, the length of time since the vasectomy was performed.

Vasectomy reversal usually 1 – 2 hours.  You can expect to go home on the same day as a routine vasectomy reversal.

Recovery after vasectomy reversal surgery

Pain is mild to moderate, similar to what you experienced in your vasectomy, and can be treated with medication. You should be able to resume normal physical activities, including sex, within three weeks.

Results are not immediate; it may be months or more before fertility and a normal sperm count is restored. The formation of anti-sperm antibodies will often prevent pregnancy from occurring. A successful reversal can lead to conception, typically within 12 to 24 months.
