Vasectomy

Vasectomy is the safest permanent contraception method available today.

We perform this procedure in the office utilizing local anesthesia and “No Scalpel” technique.

Patients have minimal pain and usually able to return full activity within few days.

Las Vegas Urology Physicians have performed more than 20,000 vasectomies over the last 10 years.

We go out of our way to make sure that your visit is comfortable and that you can return to your normal activities in no time at all.

A vasectomy can understandably be nerve-racking for most men. The procedure is essentially painless and recovery quicker than most are led to believe. We recommend that immediately following your procedure, you go home and stay off your feet for the remainder of the day. Discomfort is usually mild, and ice (frozen peas are best) every few hours over the scrotum will help with any swelling or throbbing.

In terms of what you should wear, we suggest wearing snug cotton briefs, jockey underwear, or a scrotal supporter, as this will help to limit movement of the testicles during the first week of recovery. While small amounts of blood and spotting are normal, it is important to call your doctor right away if you begin to experience fever, chills, increasing pain, drainage, or an enlarging mass, as these effects usually suggest significant bleeding or an infection, both of which are exceedingly rare occurrences.

There are a few requirements before coming into the office for your vasectomy procedure.

Pain relievers, such as aspirin and NSAIDs (ie. Motrin, Naprosyn), should not be taken for 7 days before the procedure as this may increase the risk of bleeding.

We also ask that you do not shave the scrotal area because this will be done in our office.

Lastly, we ask that you curtail 3 activities after your procedure:
• No heavy lifting or exercise-
• No sexual activity- for 1 week
• No going under water (ie. Bathing, swimming).

All of these restrictions should be followed for 4-5 days. Showers the following day are allowed.
