The good news is that the technique of vasectomy has become much less invasive. Today experienced urologists are performing no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy.
This minimally invasive technique allows for quicker return to normal activities and less time off work.
Dr. Gary Bellman is an expert in this technique, which can usually be accomplished in the office in 15-20 minutes.
In the past doctors would use a needle to numb the skin and a scalpel to cut the skin. Today a spray is used to numb the skin and tiny micro-surgical instruments are used to do the vasectomy. The new procedure is just as effective and safe but far less invasive.
