A Vasectomy is a very common male birth control procedure that you may find you want reversed down the road. If you’re an individual facing infertility due to a previous Vasectomy, you’ve probably heard the term vasovasostomy before. A Vasovasostomy works well when you simply want to reconnect the vas deferens; however, if you’re wishing to fully restore your fertility, you should choose a method that repairs the vas deferens as well as the epididymis. The epididymis is responsible for carrying sperm from the testicle to the vas deferens, and 80% of Vasectomy reversal cases also need epidydimal repair to fix microscopic “blowouts” that often occur either as a result of the original Vasectomy, or from pressure build up over time.
If you’re seeking to fully restore your fertility after a Vasectomy, it is important to take an all-inclusive approach to your Vasectomy reversal procedure. Making sure your Vasectomy reversal method includes epididymal repair in addition to the reconnection of the vas deferens only serves to ensure full restoration of your fertility post-Vasectomy.
Considerations for Surgery
If you are seeking to restore your fertility through a Vasectomy reversal, you’ve come to the right place. It doesn’t matter how much time has passed since your Vasectomy or how much of your vas deferens was removed during your original procedure– our male infertility experts at New Hope Fertility have experience with all different types of Vasectomy reversal patients, performing over 6,000 surgeries to help men like you restore their fertility. New Hope Fertility’s precise microsurgical techniques have resulted in most patients developing normal sperm count and sperm motility (indicating fertility) following their Vasectomy reversal (where no epididymal repair was needed). Most of these men also achieved pregnancy without further treatment. The success rates for patients who seek treatment after having an unsuccessful procedure elsewhere exhibit similar results to patients undergoing Vasectomy reversal surgery for the first time. These achievements are indicative of the careful time and care our doctors have taken in perfecting the microsurgical Vasectomy reversal and epididymal repair techniques. New Hope Fertility has been able to minimize the recovery time for patients by reducing the pain and swelling involved under more traditional Vasectomy reversal methods.
