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.

Dr. Monteith offers office consultations for patients who are considering vasectomy reversal at A Personal Choice.

    I laproscopically had a hernia repair, and during the surgery they cut the vas deferins in the abdomen as opposed to in the scrotum. Would you be able to reverse that procedure?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      We would not be able to help you. You will need to see a male fertility specialist for either robotic vasectomy reversal or IVF with testicular needle sperm aspiration.

  2. John says:

    It has been 15 years since my procedure was done , can it still be reversed?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      It can be reversed but after 15 years the chance of success is about 50% to 60%. The testicle loses about 3% function in sperm production each year after vasectomy. Call us at (919)977-5050 if you want to schedule. We perform surgery under general anesthesia for you comfort, make a single small no scalpel opening and we charge $6,500 total plus $125 to schedule.

    My husband and i are considering a vacectomy reversal and are trying to figure out where to go andhow much we are going to have to pay. I have recently talked to another doctor who charges 6800 but is n south carolina and we live in winston salem nc. He told me that if we wanted the surgery that we should wait till we can afford to come to him cause other doctors dont do both testicals and they charge more. That is why i am talking to you. You are much closer to us and your price is a little less then his. I would like to know though if you do reverse both testicals, ad also wanted to know that you said you do it under geneal anesthesia. Does that mean he would be going completely out ?? His body does not do well when he has to be put under that kind of anesthesia do you offer another option for anesthesia? Would love to hear back from you soon thank you so much and i hope you have a Blessed Holiday season.

      We perform vasectomy reversal under general anesthesia. This is for the comfort of the patient. A vasectomy reversal can take 2 to 3 hours and it is a lot to ask someone to lay on their back for that long. Most of our patients do well with the type of anesthesia we provide. We charge a total of $6,400 plus $125 to schedule.

      We do reverse both sides during a vasectomy procedure. The chance of vasectomy reversal success is highest if you have the reversal within 5 to 8 years of the vasectomy. Give is a call at (919)977-5050 if you have any questions.
