Vasectomy reversal - the procedure:
- Vasectomy reversal is performed under general anaesthetic.
- It usually takes between an 1 hour - 1.5 hours.
- During a vasectomy the vas deferen tubes are cut preventing sperm from leaving the epididymis.
- To reverse this procedure your surgeon in Leeds will locate the site of your vasectomy.
- They will usually make cuts on each side of your scrotum.
- After examining each testicle they will free up the tubes and remove any scar tissue.
- Using a special microscope they will stitch the ends of the tubes back together.
- They will close the surgical wounds with stitches.
After vasectomy reversal surgery
- You should be able to go home the day of your procedure but you should arrange for someone to drive you (or book our executive car service).
- Take over the counter pain relief such as Paracetamol if you have any discomfort, as advised by the clinical team.
- You should avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for at least 3 weeks after your surgery.
- Gentle walking may speed your recovery.
- Please discuss any return to work with your consultant.
- About 6 - 8 weeks after your surgery you will need to return to our clinic to give a semen sample.
- We will examine the sample for sperm.
- If no sperm are present or your sperm count is very low we may ask you to return for another test at a later date.

- Infection in the surgical wound
Specific complications of a vasectomy reversal could include:
- Long term pain
- Bleeding within the scrotum
