What is no-scalpel vasectomy?
Vasectomy is a permanent form of birth control. Vasectomy does not alter the natural hormone fluctuations of the body and is less invasive than tubal ligation. The success rate of vasectomy as a birth control method is 99.92%.
As the name implies, a “no-scalpel” vasectomy is a vasectomy technique in which no scalpel is used. The thirty minute procedure is done in the office using a local anesthetic and a mild sedative. This method is more comfortable for the patient and results in faster healing time. Typically patients are able to resume normal activities after two days of rest.
