Minimally Invasive Vasectomy Reversal
No Scalpel Vasectomy Reversal
No scalpel vasectomy reversal is the most recent advancement in the field of vasectomy reversal.
No scalpel vasectomy reversal provides a minimally invasive approach to reversing vasectomy. This reversal technique applies the same minimally invasive techniques utilized during No scalpel vasectomy to vasectomy reversal surgery.
Most vasectomy reversal providers begin their vasectomy reversals by using a scalpel to make a scrotal incision. They will either make a single midline scrotal incision or two lateral scrotal incisions using a scalpel. Their surgical approach to expose the vas deferens is the same technique used in traditional scalpel vasectomy. Incisions made with a scalpel are often larger, have more bleeding, require sutures to close, are at increased risk of infection, and result in more pain and discomfort after surgery than vasectomy reversal performed with a minimally invasive no scalpel approach.
What is No scalpel vasectomy reversal?
The No scalpel vasectomy reversal procedure requires a No scalpel dissector to create an opening in the scrotal skin.
The No scalpel dissector initially creates a small opening in the scrotal skin. The dissector is then used to spread an opening in the scrotal skin. This spreading action results in less trauma, less bleeding, and often does not require sutures to close the scrotal skin incision. Each vas deferens can be accessed through this smaller opening and the vasectomy reversal can then be performed above the skin level. Often both vas deferens can be joined through one small, single mini-incision in the scrotal skin.
