A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure that makes a man permanently unable to father a child by keeping the sperm out of semen. The vasectomy procedure blocks, or closes off, the tubes (called vas deferens) that deliver sperm from the testes. This way, the sperm is never mixed with the seminal fluid. It is usually performed as a means of contraception.
About 50 million men worldwide have had a vasectomy, and approximately 500,000 men in the United States undergo the procedure each year. They are less invasive than a tubal ligation (i.e., the procedure used to prevent a woman’s eggs from reaching the uterus). Besides tubal ligation and oral contraceptives (birth control pills), the vasectomy is the most common form of birth control among American married couples.
For your comfort and convenience, vasectomy procedures are performed in our safe, private offices. Our patients find this a much more relaxing environment than being at a hospital or surgical center.
The first step is to get a consultation with Dr. Khaled Fareed. He will take the time to answer all your questions and take you through what you can expect before and after the procedure. It’s a great time to ask any questions you may have. Don’t be afraid to ask about anything you’re wondering about – we’ve heard everything.
The consultation can be done discretely, either in person at any one of our offices or as a Telehealth appointment from the privacy and convenience of your home.
Although legally you may not be required to have the consent of your wife or partner, a vasectomy (or any contraceptive choice) should be best decided as a couple. This is one decision that you may not want to make on your own.
