A No-Scalpel Technique Vasectomy is an open-ended vasectomy, where the vas deferens tubes are cut from the testicles but left open or uncauterized while the end of the tube leading to the penis is closed. The open end of the tube allows for sperm to leak out, which allows the sperm to break down and be absorbed by the body.
Benefits of a No-Scalpel Vasectomy procedure include:
● Less post-operative discomfort because there is no sudden pressure back-up to the testicles.
● Vasectomy reversal may also be easier to perform later, if required
● Less overall pain – the no-scalpel, no needle vasectomy is virtually painless. After the procedure, you may be sore for a couple of days and are advised to take a painkiller when needed. The discomfort is less with the no-scalpel technique because there is minimal injury to the tissues.
