What is a no-scalpel vasectomy?

A no-scalpel vasectomy is a minor operation that consists in severing and blocking the deferens tubes, which transport sperm from the testicles to the penis. A small opening is made in the centre of the scrotum, i.e. the pouch containing the testicles, under the penis.

A minuscule titanium clip is installed after which the deferens tubes are cut and cauterized (burned), preventing the sperm from passing through. The procedure lasts from 20 to 30 minutes. It is done under local anaesthesia in the doctor’s office.

A vasectomy does not affect ejaculation or orgasm, but fertilization becomes impossible.

One doctors perform vasectomies at our clinic:
Dr. Nicolas Nélisse.

Remember that an appointment for a voluntary pregnancy termination or a vasectomy will be given to the actual patient only.
