The possibilities of good results that a vasectomy reversal procedure can achieve to reestablish fertility will depend mainly of the ability and experience of the urologist. In Clinica de Cirugia Cosmetica our specialist, has done hundreds of vasectomy reversals, and is a known expert in the field.
A vasectomy reversal procedure uses microsurgery techniques to re-connect the ductus. A vasectomy reversal is generally done as an ambulatory procedure.
The two techniques for a vasectomy reversal are a vasovasostomy, which reconnects the ductus deferens and the epididymovasostomy that connects the ductus deferens with the epididymis. The election of the technique will depend in the condition of the ductus deferens at the time of the surgery. In both cases, the surgeon’s goal is to obtain a precise alignment in the side in the ductus deferens and accomplish a total sealing, allowing the sperm flow back to the semen.
Men with vasectomy of 5 to 15 years that have had children before.
The stay in our clinic for patients of vasectomy reversal is of one day, during the recovery period several visits to the clinic are included for several weeks after the procedure, to evaluate the healing process and to make a semen analysis after a few weeks.
