A vasectomy is a procedure performed on a man to block the sperm from leaving the testicles. It is a permanent form of birth control. It is a simple, convenient, in-office procedure that is the most reliable of all birth control methods.  It does not affect hormones or sex-drive.


The vas is a small tube within the scrotum that connects the testicle to the prostate and carries sperm for the ejaculate. The sperm only make 5% of the ejaculate and you will notice little change in sexual function.


We provide a no-scalpel vasectomy, with return to sexual activity within a week. Most patients have minimal if any pain. A vasectomy is not immediately effective, and you must continue to use birth control for the next several weeks following the procedure. A semen analysis is then collected to ensure that no sperm are present.


Interested in a vasectomy? We often have appointments available within the next week.
