Our Simplified Seven Steps of the Reversal Process
To ensure that we have accurate information for your personalised treatment plan, we kindly ask that you fill out the Questionnaire on our website using the 'Get Started' link below. Upon receiving your information, we will provide a free report outlining your success chances, any specific implications, and alternative options within two working days. If you would like to proceed with the booking for the procedure, a video consultation with our surgeon, there will be a cost of £100, which will be deducted from the procedure fee if you choose to proceed with us. For a face-to-face consultation and clinical examination, we charge £240, a part of which (£100) will also be reduced from the procedure fee if you choose to proceed with us. Please note that clicking the 'Get Started' link below will take you to the questionnaire.
2. Booking a Date for the procedure
We are pleased to offer remote consultation bookings for patients seeking fertility reversal. Rest assured, the vast majority of our patients can secure a booking. A non-refundable deposit of £600 is required to reserve a booking for the operation. The remaining fee must be settled at least one week before the scheduled operation date. Our operation days are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and we only operate on a maximum of two patients per day.

3. Visit for the Procedure
We have patients travelling from all over the UK, Ireland and further afield. We advise arriving on the previous day if coming from far off.
4. On the day at the Clinic
Upon arrival, our receptionist and nurses will greet you with warmth and hospitality, ensuring that you feel at ease. Next, our surgeon will conduct a thorough examination, reviewing the original consultation summary and providing further insight into the anatomy and function of the testis, epididymis, and vas. During the physical examination, the surgeon will assess the cut-ends of the vas, their length and diameter, the vasectomy's original positioning, the quality of the epididymis, and the ease of access to the vas. Additionally, your overall health (including diabetes and blood pressure) and any previous groin surgeries will be considered. The surgeon will also obtain your written consent.
Afterwards, the nurses will administer appropriate premedication and escort you to the operating room. Your partner can relax in a private room with refreshments, coffee, and television while you undergo the three to four-hour procedure. They can also stroll in Stockton City Centre, just a three-minute walk from our clinic if desired.
We will provide reassuring updates and local anaesthesia during the procedure to ensure comfort. Even the most anxious individuals have had positive experiences with us. The surgeon will make an appropriate incision to access the scrotum and identify the tubes. We will then examine the fluid from the vas attached to the testis under a microscope. If sperm is present in the sample, the likelihood of a successful outcome is high (our definition of success is the presence of sperm in semen after the procedure). Our primary objective is to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you and your partner.
If there are definite signs of blow-out (determined by fluid appearance, epididymis changes, and microscopic findings), we will perform vasoepididymostomy on one or both sides as needed. The average operating time will be around three hours.
5. Going Home
You may go home immediately within an hour after the procedure once you have something to eat. We advise you to stay nearby overnight if you must travel more than 2 hours to your home.
After five days of strict rest, you can resume office-based work starting in the second week. Physically active work can be resumed in the third week, but avoid strenuous activities for at least four weeks. It is recommended to refrain from sexual activity for three weeks. Additionally, taking the suggested supplements is advised. After 12 weeks, please conduct semen tests at a local fertility clinic and send the results to us.
