Vasectomy Reversal Clinic
Our vasectomy reversal service is unique and not offered by many surgeons in the UK. We are doing the state of the art technique of Multi layered Microsurgical Vasectomy reversal that offers the best possible chance of regaining your fertility and gives the potential to become a dad again. Vasectomy reversals are done in various ways around the country. In many places, inspite of using operating microscope, the surgeons seems to be using thicker sutures(6-0) and it is unbelievable to see the photoes and videos of them using conventional surgical instruments and hand tying of the knots. This is not possible in true micro-surgery that we do, using extremely fine stitches with size 9-0 and 10-0 that can be only handled by specially designed micro-surgical instruments. We are absolutely transparent about what you will be getting depending on your individual situation. You will get a detailed summary of the ' free, No obligation' telephone consultation that will contain your personalised chances of sucess and detailed information about the options, risks and alternatives. After the procedure, you will be leaving with a type-written operation summary of what happened during the procedure. It is surprising to see patients coming to us for redo-reversal surgery after previous failed reversal from other places without clue about what type of procedure was done and if there were any sperms in the fluid checked during the operation (many places, they don't even chek that important parameter).
So it is important you need to ask the following questions
1. What procedure the surgeon will be doing and what size stitches will be used? Not all 'micro-surgery' same. Some places seem to use the operating microscope just for limited magnification while still doing the reversal with thicker sutures (size 6-0) using conventional operating instruments. So be aware, just because an operating microscope is used, that does not mean a true micro-surgery is performed. Multilayered vasectomy reversal using finest sutures 10-0 and 9-0 takes atleast three to four hours in average and some times even longer in difficult re-do procedures. There are stories from patients when they come for re-do reversal, they were done as 6th patient at the end of the operating list within hour and half. We wonder what kind of reversal operation would that be?That operation still will work if some one has a good quality vas. But in challenging situations such as disproportionate diameters of both vas ends, extremely thin vas especially if the vas was cut too close to the epdidymis, blow-out (blockage at the level of epididymis), the advanced micro-surgical techniques, ability to do epididymovasostomy and plenty of operating time (we provide upto 4 hours of operating time).
2. Do they check the fluid from the testicular end of the vas under microscope and can they do Vaso-epididymostomy if there is a Blow-out? This is an essential step of the operation as it is one of the main parameters that is helpful to identify the probable Blow-out. That helps to choose the type of procedure one would need, either Vaso-vasostomy or vaso-epididymostomy. We do this all the time without any exception and choose the procedure. If there is confirmed signs of blow -out, Vaso-epididymostomy will be the appropriate procedure. International opinion leaders in Male infertility and vasectomy reversals, routinely do this examination of the fluid at the time of the operation.
3. Is there a dedicated team doing the procedure? In our set up, we are tremendously privileged to have a dedicated team of same staff members working with the consultant surgeon that gives a syncronised synergy during the whole process of care during the reversal. Patients appreciate that process very much.
4. How many procedures are done by the surgeon in the clinic or hospital? The Vaso-vsostomy study group research done in the 1990s recommended a critical volume of atleast 12 per year. In the modern micro-surgical practice,atleast 6 or more per month is preferable. Be weary of those claiming 100s of procedures every year while they are holding full time consultant post in another hospital. It is impossible to do those numbers doing this technique that we are doing. We do a maximum of only two patients in an operating day and we have four to five operating days in a month. Each operation takes three to five hours.
So do your your research and ask questions. Don't delay . Please call us first. Even if you are inclined to have the treatment somewhere else for valid reasons, it is better you hear what we have to say. We offer a 'No obligation' free telephone consultation and you will receive a written summary of your consultation discussing the personalised chances of success and alternatives. After that it is upto you to decide if the reversal is right for you.
We hope to be able to help achieving the dream of becoming a parent again.
