Vasectomy Reversal

A vasectomy blocks, cuts or seals the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis as a form of permanent contraception. However, we understand that for many people, life circumstances can change. Vasectomy reversal is very popular and we offer advice and guidance, with various treatments available.

At London Urology Mr David Ralph is our leading specialist in vasectomy reversal.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

Vasectomy Reversal

A vasectomy blocks, cuts or seals the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis as a form of permanent contraception. However, we understand that for many people, life circumstances can change. Vasectomy reversal is very popular and we offer advice and guidance, with various treatments available.

Standard Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy reversal reconnects or unblocks the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis. The length of time that has passed since your vasectomy will depend on the type of reversal you will require.

The procedure most often used is called vasovasostomy, which reconnects the tubes that had been blocked, cut or sealed during the vasectomy. Using dissolvable stitches, the surgeon places the tubes back inside the scrotom. In men who had a vasectomy more than ten years ago, however, this procedure is often not effective because the flow of sperm is blocked. If such cases, a vasoepididymostomy may be offered.

Vasoepididymostomy

The vasoepididymostomy joins the tubes directly to the epididymis, the part of the testicle where sperm is stored, which restores sperm flow. This is a complex operation performed as microsurgery, using an operating microscope.
