Vasectomy Surgery/Treatment in Delhi, NCR India

A vasectomy is a form of sterilization control preventive measures for men who are certain they don't want a child in their future. It is a small surgical method to cut the vas deferens.

Vasectomy

Benefits Of Vasectomy

It is an outpatient surgery with a low risk of complications or side effects. The cost of a vasectomy is far less than the cost of female sterilization or the long term cost of birth control medications for women.

This method means an individual won't need to take any birth control preventive measure before intercourse.

Methods Of Vasectomy

Due to the simplicity of the process, it takes less than 30 minutes to complete the procedure. After a short time period [About 1 hour] under the doctor's observation, the patient is sent home to rest. As the procedure is minimal, many patients find that they can resume their sexual activity within a week.

However, there are two types of vasectomies the Incision method and the No scalpel method.

Incision Method

The surgeon makes small cuts in the skin of your scrotum. Through these cuts, the tubes that carry sperm (vas deferens) are blocked off. Sometimes, a tiny part of each tube is removed. The tubes may be tied, blocked with surgical clips, or closed with an electrical current (this is called cauterizing).

No scalpel Method

also called no-cut or no-incision, reduces bleeding and lowers the risk of infection, bruising, and other complications. No incisions are made during a no-scalpel vasectomy (also known as a keyhole vasectomy). Instead, the surgeon punctures the skin of the scrotal sac with a hemostat (locking forceps with a sharp tip). The skin is then gently spread until both vas deferens can be seen.

Stitches are usually not required because the puncture site is so small and only goes through the skin, and healing time is quick.

As compared to a traditional vasectomy treatment, the no-scalpel approach is a less invasive and quicker procedure that only takes total time including prep and anaesthesia is approximately 15 to 20 minutes. This is the main reason why in the medical field there is a more push to no-scalpel method to perform vasectomy instead of conventional ones.

Risks

Sometimes the individual opting for the method later changes their mind about wanting a child. Although the procedure is reversible but it isn't certain that it will work 100%. Reversal surgery is more complicated, is expensive and is ineffective in some cases.

Other than that side effects right after surgery can include bleeding or blood clot inside the scrotum, infection of the surgery site, swelling, mild pain or discomfort, etc. Delayed complications may include an abnormal cyst that develops in the small, coiled tube located on the upper testicle that collects and transports sperm, chronic pain, inflammation, etc.
