For many years a vasectomy was viewed as a permanent, non-reversible form of contraception. With advances in microsurgical techniques this procedure is now reversible. As a highly skilled microsurgeon, Dr Laniewski is able to provide this service for YOU.
Why have a vasectomy reversal?
The majority of men who seek vasectomy reversal have simply changed their mind and would like to have more children. This happens most often when men have entered a new relationship. Another reason that men seek vasectomy reversal is because of the development of post-vasectomy pain syndrome. This affects a small number of men who have undergone vasectomy and is characterised by a dull pain in the testicles, that becomes worse during intercourse and ejaculation. A reversal can certainly help to alleviate the discomfort experienced by some men after vasectomy.
The procedure – Vaso-Vasostomy
A vasectomy reversal can take between 2-4 hours to complete. It is designed to unblock any obstructions and microsurgical techniques are used to reconnect the tubes (vas deferens) that were cut during vasectomy.
