About Dr. Monteith and Vasectomy Reversal
Dr. Monteith is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Obstetricians and Gynecologists are physicians who, by virtue of satisfactory completion of an accredited program of graduate medical education, possess special knowledge, skills and professional capability in the medical and surgical care of women related to pregnancy and disorders of the female reproductive system. Dr. Monteith is not a board certified urologist.
Dr. Monteith completed a formal one week microsurgical training course at the Cleveland Clinic. He has been performing female sterilization reversal since 2008.
Dr. Monteith sought additional training in vasectomy and vasectomy reversal through one-on-one professional mentorships. Dr. Monteith has performed minimally invasive vasectomy since 2007 and began offering minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in 2014.
Dr. Monteith performs minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in his in-office operating room under general anesthesia. He performs vasovasostomy (end to end connections) vasectomy reversal but does not perform vasoepididymostomy (vas deferens to epididymis) by-pass procedures. The majority of reversals can be successfully performed as vasovasostomy procedures.
It is difficult to predict preoperatively who will require a vasoepididymostomy procedure.
Men who have had vasectomy greater than 10 years are more at risk for requiring vasoepididymostomy and should consider having reversal with a Urologist who is fellowship trained in performing vasoepididymostomy procedures.
