Spire Clare Park Hospital offers the no-scalpel vasectomy which is a simple and gentle procedure that holds many significant advantages over conventional vasectomy. The procedure is quicker to perform and uses a fine needle-point rather than a scalpel and results in very little bleeding, less bruising, and a faster recovery time. No incisions are made allowing for minimal physical discomfort for patients both during and after the procedure.
Vasectomies at Spire Clare Park Hospital are carried out by Dr Tina Peers, Consultant in Sexual Health and Reproductive Healthcare, who offers a one-stop service for patients who do not wish to have a general anaesthetic or take significant time out of work.
Dr Peers started performing vasectomies in 1998, and to date has carried out over 1,500. She currently performs around 250 vasectomies a year and has a low haematoma rate of just 0.2%. In February 2005 she started to use the no scalpel technique, which minimises discomfort and the risk of infection.
A GP referral is not required for this procedure.
