If you have had a vasectomy but wish to build or grow your family, vasectomy reversal can be a safe and successful option. Perhaps you remarried and want to father a biological child with your new spouse. Maybe you are in a long-term relationship and changed your mind about having children. No matter what your reason for pursuing vasectomy reversal, you are in excellent hands under the care of Dr. Paul Turek. The fellowship-trained master microsurgeon performs vasectomy reversal weekly and has published extensively about his experiences and the innovations he has pioneered in the field.

Procedural Details

Vasectomy reversal reconnects the male reproductive tract where it was previously interrupted by a vasectomy to restore the flow of sperm. Through a small incision on the scrotum, Dr. Turek exposes the vas deferens and examines the separated ends before determining exactly how to reconnect the passageway.

Vasectomy Reversal Techniques

There are multiple microsurgical approaches to reconnect the male reproductive tract.

Epididymovasostomy connects the vas deferens to the epididymis (the 18-foot-long tubule on the back of the testicle that transports sperm to the vas deferens) to recreate a passageway for sperm. This approach is recommended when microscopic analysis of fluid taken from the testicular end of the obstructed vasal segment reveals the absence of sperm.

Vasovasostomy connects both ends of the vas deferens directly when analysis of fluid taken from the testicular side of the obstructed vasal segment confirms the presence of sperm.

Cost-effectiveness is critical when deciding how to achieve your family building goals. Dr. Turek offers state-of-the-art microsurgical techniques and world-class quality of care at competitive prices. The package-pricing structure is clear and up-front, without hidden fees or expenses.

Failed Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy reversals can fail for several different reasons, including the female partner’s reproductive health, abnormal sperm quality before the vasectomy or the development of antisperm antibodies or scar tissue. The best results of vasectomy reversal are obtained by surgeons like Dr. Turek, who have considerable training and experience.

Sperm Retrieval during a Vasectomy Reversal

Dr. Turek offers the option of retrieving healthy sperm during vasectomy reversal to bank and use for future assisted reproductive treatment (e.g., in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection). The sperm can be taken from the testicle, epididymal tube or vas deferens prior to reconnecting the system.

Vasectomy Reversal Risks and Complications

When vasectomy reversal is performed by a properly trained, experienced microsurgeon, serious complications are very rare. Far less than 1 percent of his patients experience problems with anesthesia or develop an infection, and less than 1 percent of patients develop hematoma (i.e., a collection of blood at the surgical site).

Preparing for vasectomy reversal begins with a consultation with Dr. Turek, during which he will learn more about your expectations for surgery and assess whether it is right for your needs. You will also learn as much as possible about the procedure and Dr. Turek will answer your questions.
