Vasectomy is a form of permanent male sterilization. The procedure involves dividing the vas deferens in order to interrupt the flow of sperm out of the testicles. It is the most common form of male sterilization. Dr. Michael Kuglitsch has performed over 2000 vasectomy surgeries.
5 Minute Procedure
No Needle / No Scalpel
Low Cost / Cash or Insurance
Dr. Michael E. Kuglitsch has performed over 2,000 successful in-office Vasectomy's over twenty-five years.
The testicles also make the male hormone testosterone, which is not affected by this procedure. Also, since the testicles produce only 5-10 percent of the ejaculate volume, the semen volume will appear the same.
During this five minute procedure, no needle anesthetic is applied and a “no-scalpel” technique utilizes a small “puncture” to perform the task. Most men will have minimal to no discomfort, which can be treated with Ibuprofen.
It is common to have some mild “aching” of the testicles for a few days along with bruising of the scrotal skin. Normal activity can usually be resumed within 48 hours. Sexual relations can also be resumed in 48 hours. Other forms of birth control must be utilized until a semen sample shows no evidence of sperm. Because it takes at least three months for all the sperm to “clear the system,” we ask that you not bring a specimen to the lab for at least that length of time. It may require several semen analyses before a man is cleared.
It must be emphasized that unprotected intercourse is not allowed until a semen analysis shows no sperm. There must be no sperm present in the ejaculate analyzed in two separate samples, at least two weeks apart, before the patient is considered to have had a successful vasectomy.
