Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal

While a vasectomy should be regarded as permanent, advances in microsurgery have enabled surgeons to reverse the procedure and restore fertility in many cases. The reversal procedure – performed under a special microscope – involves reconnecting the cut ends of the vas deferens, the small tubes that carry sperm from a man’s testicles. It is performed on a same-day, outpatient basis, and success rates are highest among patients whose original vasectomy was performed within the past three years.
