Premier Medical Financing proudly announces that we are now offering financing for vasectomies and reversal procedures. This represents an additional elective procedure that our customers have available.

What is a Vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a procedure performed on a male whereby the sperm is prevented from being released when a man ejaculates. Hence, this becomes a permanent form of birth control. Sperm is released via the vas deferens. During a vasectomy, this muscular tube is clamped, cut, or otherwise sealed. Without the sperm, a female’s egg can not be fertilized properly.

WebMd describes the process like this:

  • Your testicles and scrotum are cleaned with an antiseptic and possibly shaved.
  • You may be given an oral or intravenous (IV)medicine to reduce anxiety and make you sleepy. If you do take this medicine, you may not remember much about the procedure.
  • Each vas deferens is located by touch.
  • local anesthetic is injected into the area.
  • Your doctor makes one or two small openings in your scrotum. Through an opening, the two vas deferens tubes are cut. The two ends of the vas deferens are tied, stitched, or sealed. Electrocautery may be used to seal the ends with heat. Scar tissue from the surgery helps block the tubes.
  • The vas deferens is then replaced inside the scrotum and the skin is closed with stitches that dissolve and do not have to be removed.
Is a Vasectomy Safe?

Vasectomy procedures are very safe with risks being very low. Patients can experience any combination of bleeding, swelling, inflammation, infection at the incision, or possibly additional surgery. All of these are very treatable and not considered life threatening.

Is a Vasectomy Effective?

Vasectomies has a 99.85% effective rate according to WebMD. You may have heard stories where a couple became pregnant after the man had a vasectomy. There are a couple of explanations for this. It takes anywhere from 10 to 20 ejaculations after the procedure to clear out all of the sperm. It is suggested to not assume anything until a physician indicates the sperm count is 0.0.  The second, and more likely, reason is the man’s vas deferens has grown back together so the man became fertile again. This is extremely rare, however.

How much does a Vasectomy Cost?

A traditional vasectomy runs anywhere from $350-$1,000 which is substantially cheaper than what it costs to sterilize a woman. However, there is a new procedure for vasectomies known as “No Scalpel vasectomy.” The No-Scalpel vasectomy is a technique used to do the vasectomy through one single puncture. The puncture is made in the scrotum and requires no suturing or stitches.

The primary difference compared to the conventional vasectomy is that the vas deferens is controlled and grasped by the surgeon in a less traumatic manner. This results in less pain and fewer postoperative complications. This procedure is done with the aid of a local anesthetic called ‘Xylocaine’ (similar to ‘Novocaine’).

There is no significant difference in costs between these 2 procedures.

What is a Vasectomy Reversal?

A Vasectomy Reversal (also known as Vasovasostomy)  is a surgery by which vasectomies are partially reversed. Another surgery for vasectomy reversal is vasoepididymostomy. Specifically, vasectomy reversal (vasovasostomy) reconnects the tubes (vas deferens) that were cut during a vasectomy.

Whereas, a vasectomy takes about 20 or 30 minutes, Vasectomy reversal usually takes from 2 to 4 hours, followed by a few more hours for recovery from the anesthetic.

Is a Vasectomy Reversal Safe and Effective?

The safety and effectiveness are very simliar. One major difference between the two is that it is easier and quicker to clip or cut, then it is to re-attach which is what the reversal does. The second determining factor is the time period between the vasectomy and the reversal. The first 10 years can be effectively reversed but beyond that time frame the odds of a successful reversal decline significantly.

There are no major health risks associated with the reversal other than infection and swelling which are treatable.

How Much Are Vasectomy Reversals?

There is a huge difference in price between the vasectomy and the reversal procedure. The reversal procedure is longer and has a lower effective rate than the traditional vasectomy. There are more variables involved in determining the success possiblity. Time distance between the two, etc. A vasectomy reversal can cost anywhere betwenn $4,000 to $10,000 depending on the market and other mitigating factors.
