What's involved in vasectomy reversal surgery (reversal of male sterilisation)?
A vasectomy reversal is an operation to re-join each of the tubes (vasa deferentia) that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis. These were cut during your vasectomy operation.
A vasectomy reversal operation is usually done under general anaesthesia, which means that you will be asleep throughout the procedure and will feel no pain. This is used because it is important that you are completely still during this delicate procedure.
It is important to understand that not all vasectomy reversal operations are successful and your surgeon will advise you of your options.
Is vasectomy reversal available on the NHS?
Reversal of male sterilisation or vasectomy reversal surgery is currently being restricted by the NHS in some areas of the UK and waiting lists are becoming significantly longer. For these reasons many people opt for private vasectomy surgery.
