Dr Roger Perkins
If you have had a vasectomy in the past and you want to undo the effects of the procedure, you will need a vasectomy reversal.
Reversing a vasectomy
What is a vasectomy reversal?
"Typically, men have a vasectomy when they have completed their family or they don’t want any children. When they change their mind, a vasectomy reversal is a surgical procedure to conceive naturally after vasectomy and to avoid IVF treatment."
"A 2-layer closure technique is used using fine monofilament suture. Success varies and may decline the longer it has been since the vasectomy procedure. Typically, 90% of men will have sperm in the ejaculate after vasectomy reversal"
"Our Clinic’s definition of success is not merely sperm in the ejaculate but live birth outcomes. If you would like us to collect sperm for storage, it can be easily done whilst we reverse your vasectomy. The Fertility Clinic is a short walk away for a scientist to collect the sample from theatre."
Vasectomy reversal procedure
What does the procedure involve?
"In the first 5 days, it is usual to rest. I will see you for review at the end of that time. Most men will be able to return to work at that stage."
Vasectomy reversal success rate
When do I know if the procedure was successful?
"If the reversal is not successful, there is no need to spend precious time looking for another clinic to undertake IVF. I will continue to look after you as a couple for the IVF treatment."
"Because I manage both IVF as well as vasectomy reversal, I will provide you with the best and most effective choice in your particular circumstances."
