No-Scalpel Vasectomy in Winnipeg

No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) was developed in China in 1974 by Dr. Li Shunqiang. By 1985, an international team made up of members from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Access to Voluntary and Safe Contraception (AVSC), formerly the Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception, were visiting China to study alternative vasectomy procedures, including NSV.

In 1988, after careful observation and review of the NSV procedure, they decided to introduce the technique to North America. Since then, over 1,000,000 No-Scalpel vasectomies have been performed in North America and nearly 20,000,000 in China, and the numbers around the world are growing.

Our Manitoba vasectomy clinic uses this advanced method and our affiliated Gentle Procedures Clinics across Canada have been performing scalpel-free vasectomies with great success for many years.

NSV Benefits, Plus No-Needle Freezing

No scalpel vasectomy is a simple and elegant in-office procedure that many studies show has significant advantages over conventional vasectomy. NSV is comparatively faster, has a swifter recovery time, safer (one-eighth the rate of bleeding and infection) and can be virtually pain-free – especially when coupled with no-needle anesthesia – as done at our Winnipeg vasectomy clinic. The image at right shows how no-needle anaesthesia is applied with pressurised air.

With a conventional vasectomy procedure, a doctor would make two incisions, one on each side of the scrotum, perform the procedure, and then stitch up the incisions. The stitches would then have to be removed about a week later.

With this new approach there is no knife, no cutting incision, no stitches and no-needle. Men who have undergone NSV express amazement at the minimal physical discomfort they experienced both during the procedure and during recovery.

Men who were previously not considering vasectomy because they feared the scalpel can now feel comfortable, relaxed and confident with this simple procedure.

Winnipeg Vasectomy Clinic – FAQ

Before the vasectomy, you will not need any sedatives. No-Scalpel No-Needle Vasectomy is virtually painless. Afterwards you will likely be sore for a couple of days and should take a mild painkiller. The discomfort is less with the no-scalpel technique because there is minimal injury to the tissues.
You should not do any heavy physical labour for seven days after your vasectomy. If your job does not involve this kind of work, you can go back sooner. Many men have their vasectomy on Friday, so they can take it easy over the weekend and go back to work on Monday.

NSV is extremely effective! In fact, the success rate of vasectomy in our clinics has been better than 99.9%, which is amongst the highest in North America. Our Winnipeg vasectomy clinic offers the same procedure with Dr. Jay.
No, after a vasectomy, there are always some active sperm in your system. It usually takes 2-3 months plus 20 ejaculations to clear them. You and your partner should use some other form of birth control until a semen test confirms that your semen is sperm free.
Most medical experts, including special panels convened by the National Institutes of Health and by the World Health Organization, have concluded that vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure. Vasectomy is surgery, and all surgery has some risks, such as bleeding and infection. But serious problems are uncommon at our Winnipeg clinic.
Yes, but reversal operations are expensive and not always successful. If you are thinking about reversal, perhaps vasectomy is not right for you. Pre-vasectomy Sperm Banking (cryopreservation) is a good idea for almost anyone considering a vasectomy. Ask our staff for details. Our Winnipeg vasectomy clinic does not offer reversals.
As soon as you are comfortable, after a minimum of seven days, but remember to use some other kind of birth control until your semen analysis confirms you are sterile.
On average, the whole procedure takes less than 10 minutes. It is a simple procedure that can be performed in our surgical rooms in our local clinic (rather than the hospital). After your procedure, we recommend that you have someone to drive you home, or that you extend your stay at our clinic to be sure that your are fully recovered before driving yourself home.
Open-ended vasectomy is where, once the vas tube is cut, the end from the testicle is left open (i.e. not cauterized), while the end of the tube leading to the penis is closed. Studies have suggested that this could be the ideal way to block the vas end. There may be less post-operative discomfort because there is no sudden pressure back-up to the testicles.
Your vasectomy procedure will prevent your sperm from getting into your semen, but they will continue to be produced by your testicles. The sperm will be reabsorbed into your body, the same as happens now if you don’t ejaculate regularly. There is no reason to be concerned about the disposition of your sperm after your vasectomy surgery
