Vasectomy Reversal in Columbus, Ohio

Life circumstances can change unexpectedly, and your thoughts about having children or having more children may have changed. You now find yourself wondering if you should have a vasectomy reversal. You’re not alone - up to 10 percent of men who have had a vasectomy opt for a reversal. 

After a vasectomy, the testes still make sperm, but it is blocked and then absorbed by the body. Vasectomy reversal is a surgical procedure that reattaches that cut ends of the vas deferens, allowing for sperm to return to the semen. By reversing a vasectomy, a couple can increase their chances of getting pregnant without assisted reproductive technology.

Is it possible to get a Vasectomy Reversal?

1. Do Vasectomy Reversal's really work?

While the exact answer to this question depends on a few factors, the general answer is yes, vasectomy reversals do work. Success rates are higher the more recent the vasectomy; however, vasectomy reversals may be successful even more than 20+ years after a vasectomy.  Success rates depend on what your surgeon finds during the procedure. Additionally, because sperm is only half of the equation, success rates for fertility also depend on the health and age of your partner. Rest assured, I will do everything I can to help you become a dad (again).

2. What to expect when having a Vasectomy Reversal

Most vasectomy reversals are performed as an outpatient surgical procedure using an operating microscope and can be done under local, regional or general anesthesia. I offer vasectomy reversal in the office, under local anesthesia, greatly reducing the total cost of the procedure.  Recovery is variable and can anywhere from five to 14 days, and most men see return of sperm in about three months.
