How is a vasectomy performed?
I use a no-needle, no-scalpel technique which involves putting a tiny clip on each end of the vas deferens, and removing a segment of the tube. This can be done in as little as 20 minutes with minimal discomfort. Very rarely one may experience recurrent pain on one side where a vasectomy was performed; however this is extremely rare and there are remedies in this unlikely event.
