Microsurgical vasectomy reversal

Microsurgical techniques have been proven through numerous large scientific studies to be the most successful method of reversing vasectomy and achieving the best results. In order to achieve the highest degree of accuracy high powered operating microscopes, delicate microsurgical instruments and stitches that are so fine it is almost impossible to see them with the naked eye are used to re-establish patency of each vas deferens for reversal of vasectomy. Precise surgical methods and very accurate suture placement maximise the chance of restoring fertility.

There are a range of predictors of successful vasectomy reversal which you should consider when making a decision to reverse your vasectomy. It is very important to be aware of just how many vasectomy reversal operations your chosen surgeon is performing so that you can make a judgement about their likely results. On average I perform between 5 and 6 vasectomy reversals weekly, which to a large extent explains that for the average man undergoing vasectomy reversal in my care, surgery is successful in leading to the return of sperm over 95% of the time.

You may also be trying to choose between vasectomy reversal or IVF, and so while IVF is an excellent treatment when undertaken at a high quality IVF clinic it is my view that vasectomy reversal should be your first choice as it provides you the widest range of long-term options.

This accumulated expertise provides you reassurance of being the wisest choice of reproductive microsurgeon to undertake your vasectomy reversal.
