Vasectomy is the surgical process of blocking the vas deferens (the tube that delivers the sperm from the testis to the penis) in order to prevent conception. It is the most popular form of male contraception in Minnesota and the United States. Each year, more than half million men worldwide choose to get a vasectomy. Since vasectomy simply interrupts the delivery of the sperm, it does not change hormonal function and sexual drive. Vasectomy has been proved to be free of known long term side effects, and is considered to be the safest and most reliable method of permanent male sterilization.
No Scalpel Vasectomy procedure was developed in the early 1970s in China. It is just as effective as traditional vasectomy. Almost 20 million No-Scalpel Vasectomies have been performed around the world. It has become more and more popular in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas over the past decade, and no scalpel vasectomy becomes a minimal invasive office procedure.
As compared to conventional vasectomy, the beauty of no-scalpel vasectomy includes:
- No incision with a scalpel–only a tiny puncture
- Quicker procedure
- Less Trauma
- No stitches
- Less discomfort
- quicker recovery (2-3 days)
- Less chance of complications
