We offer Reversal Vasectomy, or vasovasostomy, at very reasonable prices. A same-day surgery procedure with a very high success rate. Dr. Prody has performed over 1000 vasectomy reversal procedures with excellent outcomes.
Dr. Prody's experience and dedication to his patients have made him a leader in Urology in the state of Florida.
Vasovasostomy typically takes 2-3 hours while Vasoepididymostomy can take as long as 4 hours. The procedure involves creating a small incision in the scrotum and re-connecting the sperm ducts in order to return sperm to the semen. Both ends of the vas-deferens are gently dilated, and the fluid from the testicular side is inspected. Finally, the ends are freshly cut and surgically reconnected using microsurgery techniques and an extremely small suture.
In less than 10% of cases, a vasoepididymostomy may be performed.
The majority of patients leave the surgery center within an hour of surgery completion. Tight supportive underwear or an athletic supporter should be worn for 3 weeks after the surgery. This protects the vasectomy reversal site and decreases post-operative pain/swelling. The incisions generally heal in about 2 weeks, and the stitches are dissolvable.
-$7000 for a vasovasostomy and no additional charge if a vasoepididymostomy needs to be performed.
-A fee of $2000 is required at the time surgery is scheduled to reserve time in the operating suite. This fee is non-refundable if surgery is canceled. A balance of $5,000 is due 2 weeks prior to surgery. We can reschedule the surgery once, at no charge, if we are notified at least 3 weeks ahead of the scheduled surgery date.
-Financing is available for a small additional charge.
What are the chances of success?
High success rates are seen for vasovasostomy with an 80-90% chance of sperm being detected in the semen 3-4 months after surgery. The success rate can be lower if vasoepididymostomy is required.
I have already had one unsuccessful reversal. Should I consider another?
When considering a “re-do” procedure, there are multiple factors that should be taken into account. Dr. Prody has a tremendous amount of experience in the reversal procedure and is ready to discuss your individual case with you.
Do I need any testing before surgery?
Besides typical pre-operative lab work, we typically do recommend obtaining a semen analysis pre-operatively.
What should I expect on the day of surgery?
Patients should discontinue any blood thinners such as aspirin 7 days prior to the surgery. Dr. Prody meets his patients at the surgery center prior to surgery. Surgery generally takes 2 to 4 hours. Most men awaken from the procedure with minimal discomfort, as a long-acting local anesthetic is used as well. The patient must have a driver as you will be discharged home generally within 1 hour after surgery.
What should I expect after surgery?
Most men describe similar discomfort to their vasectomy for the first 24-48 hours after surgery. In most cases, men say that it was not as bad as they had expected.
It is important to wear a snug scrotal support for 3 weeks after surgery. To reduce swelling we highly suggest ice packs on and off every 20 minutes for the first 24 hours after surgery.
Patients must not engage in sexual activity for at least 3 weeks after the reversal.
What are the risks of surgery?
Thankfully, it is uncommon to have complications after vasectomy reversals. It is likely that you will have some bruising of the skin and minor swelling.
