Let's talk about Vasectomy

What is vasectomy?


Vasectomy is the common name for male sterilisation – a permanent method of contraception. It is a simple surgical procedure which closes off the sperm-carrying tubes (vas deferens) in the scrotum to stop sperm from getting into the semen.


After the procedure, sperm produced in the testicles can no longer to mix with semen, and so the semen gradually becomes free of sperm.


Vasectomy does not usually require a general anaesthetic, and a highly trained doctor can perform the procedure in less than 30 minutes, in our surgical facility in Chatswood.

Intravenous sedation is preferred by many though the procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic. Please allow for longer recovery time (approx 2 hrs) if you are undergoing conscious IV sedation.

We prefer to see you in the clinic for a consultation prior to booking in for the procedure, so we can explain everything and the doctor will examine you to make sure you are suitable to have vasectomy as an office based procedure.
