No Scalpel Vasectomy
What is a No Scalpel, or No Snip Vasectomy?
There are many methods used to perform a vasectomy procedure. The Board-Certified Urologists at AUS recommend, and almost always use, a no scalpel vasectomy method. The no scalpel vasectomy is often referred to as a ‘no-snip’ vasectomy as well, but the procedure is exactly the same. Either name can be used.
A no scalpel vasectomy uses a method that allows doctors to complete the procedure using a single, tiny puncture. In this manner, no use of a scalpel is needed. The puncture is so minimal, most patients don't ever feel it.
After the no scalpel vasectomy procedure is complete, ejaculations will proceed as normal but the man’s semen will not contain any sperm. Ejaculation during sexual intercourse will continue to be the same, he simply will no longer be able to impregnate his partner. Find out more here.
