At first glance it may seem confusing as to why Dr. Monteith, a specialist in female sterilization reversal who has devoted his career to restoring natural fertility, performs vasectomy. Dr. Monteith offers vasectomy because of his personal experiences and observations in women’s health care.
Reasons Dr. Monteith offers vasectomies
Dr. Monteith is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and he “by virtue of satisfactory completion of an accredited program of graduate medical education, possesses 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’s board certification in Obstetrics and Gynecology provides him with an expertise in women’s health and it’s because of his experience in women’s health that he was motivated to seek additonal training in the provision of vasectomy.
As a result of his personal and professional experiences in caring for the health of women, Dr. Monteith has personally observed his female patients shouldering all the risks of pregnancy and most of the burden of using permanent birth control. There are many reasons why women are influenced to have tubal ligation. Unfortunately some couples select tubal ligation because it seems easier for women to have tubal ligation when faced with the barriers men must overcome when considering vasectomy.
Although vasectomy and tubal ligation procedures are comparable in safety, the risks of having a tubal ligation are much more serious than are the risks of having a vasectomy. As a result of his professional experiences, Dr. Monteith felt it was important to obtain additional training in no-scalpel vasectomy and to reduce barriers men often face when attempting to obtain a vasectomy.
Dr. Monteith has followed the example of other similarly motivated vasectomy specialists by offering the most minimally invasive form of vasectomy available, keeping the procedure affordable, eliminating the mandatory pre-operative consultation, and allowing patients the option of returning their after vasectomy semen samples by mail.
