What Is a Vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure performed on males as an effective and safe method for the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. Generally a quick outpatient procedure, a vasectomy essentially disconnects or blocks the vas deferens, preventing sperm from entering semen before ejaculation. Vasectomy procedures are highly effective birth control measures, second only to abstinence. Committed to providing surgical care in the most minimally invasive way possible, the general surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical are excited to offer a scalpel-free vasectomy procedure to men throughout Greater Sacramento. For more information on getting a vasectomy, please call our office located in Roseville or Folsom, CA.

How Is a No-Scalpel Vasectomy Performed?

No-scalpel vasectomies are performed in our state-of-the-art practice or an outpatient surgery center and typically take less than 30 minutes to complete. After numbing the scrotum with a local anesthetic, our surgeons will locate the vas deferens through the skin of the scrotum and place a small clamp around the structure. A small hole is then created in the skin and the vas deferens is carefully exposed through the opening. It is then either tied off, cauterized, or severed before being positioned back into the scrotum. The opening is then sealed with a medical adhesive, as sutures are generally not required following a no-scalpel vasectomy procedure. Most men are able to return to normal daily activities within a week following a scalpel-free vasectomy with our Sacramento area surgeons.
