NO SCALPEL VASECTOMY
A vasectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that results in male sterilization for permanent birth control.
No-scalpel vasectomy at our clinic is a simple, effective and a quick and virtually painless in-office procedure, an alternative to conventional vasectomy using a scalpel.
A vasectomy has traditionally required a scalpel to make two small incisions in the scrotum. However, since the 1980s, a no-scalpel vasectomy has become a popular option for many men in Quebec.
Many doctors favor the No-Scalpel method because – unlike the traditional vasectomy approach – a scalpel is not required and there are minimal incisions (only one or two small punctures in the skin). The no-scalpel method results in a reduced risk of bleeding or infection and a faster recovery while being just as effective as a conventional vasectomy. It can also be done more quickly than a conventional vasectomy and usually requires no sutures to close up incisions and there is minimal perceptible scaring.
With a conventional vasectomy procedure, a doctor would make two incisions, one on each side of the scrotum, perform the procedure, and then stitch up the incisions. The stitches would then have to be removed about a week later.
