No-Needle, No-Scalpel Vasectomy Method- West Hills
By: Dr. Gary Bellman on August 1, 2013, 1:04 pm
Dr. Gary C. Bellman is a Board Certified Urologist with over 20 years of experience and is a leading specialist in the no-needle, no-scalpel procedure and has performed vasectomies on thousands of men.
Vasectomy is a simple surgical procedure for permanent male fertility control, in which the tube leading from each testi is cut and sealed in order to stop sperm from reaching the prostate, where it mixes with the semen. This tube is called the vas deferens. Without sperm in the semen, a man cannot make his partner pregnant. For a man wanting a vasectomy, he should be sure of no longer wanting kids; Dr. Bellman recommends his patients to bank their sperm if the possibility of kids may still be in the future.
The No-Scalpel Vasectomy is unique in that there is no incision made in the scrotum. Instead, pointed forceps separate the layers of tissue and make a single opening less than a quarter of an inch in diameter in the middle of the scrotum. This vasectomy procedure generally takes less than 20 minutes.
As with any surgical procedure, the primary risks are infection and bleeding. These risks are generally low for the no-needle, no scalpel technique. The benefits of this procedure include a faster recovery time vs. the standard vasectomy. Bleeding, swelling, infection and other complications are noted as less. It’s a simple and safe approach with high patient satisfaction, as reflected with our patient in low pain scores.
