The vasectomy procedure is a surgical operation designed to offer permanent contraception for men. Your surgeon will sever the tubes that carry the sperm in your testicles, preventing them from reaching your semen and ensuring that your partner cannot become pregnant.
The only other method of contraception available to men is the use of a condom. After you undergo the vasectomy procedure neither you nor your partner should need to use further contraception.
The vasectomy procedure is a surgical operation that takes roughly 15 to 20 minutes to perform and can be performed under local or general anaesthetic. Your surgeon will cut into your scrotum and sever the tubes that carry sperm from each testicle before closing up.
Patients who undergo the vasectomy procedure are usually able to return on the same day. Your testicles will probably ache for a few days and you should be able to return to normal activities within about two days.
Regular exercise should help you recover as quickly as possible. Before beginning a course of exercise consult your medical team for advice.
At One Healthcare we can book you in to see a specialist Urology surgeon, usually within 48 hours, for an initial consultation. Vasectomy surgery is available at the One Hatfield Hospital in Hertfordshire and the One Ashford Hospital in Kent.
You can use your private medical insurance or pay for your Vasectomy treatment. We offer competitive, fixed price packages as well as the ability to spread your cost with the option of 0% finance. If you are using your health insurance please do contact your insurer first for approval and let them know you’d like to be treated at either the One Ashford Hospital or One Hatfield Hospital.
