Vasectomy Reversal

This operation is carried out for men who have previously had a vasectomy for sterilisation and wish to attempt to father further children by natural means.
The operation is usually carried out as a Day Surgery procedure under general anaesthetic. The patient is admitted and should have previously shaved the scrotum.

Usually a small incision is made on either side of the scrotum over the vasectomy site which is usually palpable. The scar tissue from the vasectomy is cut away and flow of sperm from the testicular end is looked for. A very fine probe is passed down the other end which is also cleared of the scar tissue. Sometimes the gap between the two ends is too large to successfully bring the ends together.
