Vasectomy is a safe, permanent method of contraception for men who have completed their family or who have decided not to have children.
A vasectomy is a straightforward day procedure that involves closing off the small sperm carrying tubes (vas deferens) that are located in the scrotum. This blocks the flow of sperm from the testicles, so that when you ejaculate, the semen does not contain sperm.
Dr Marie provides expert vasectomy services in our clinics across Australia. Both the consultation and procedure take place on the same day, with the procedure taking approximately 15-30 minutes. Most vasectomies are performed under local anesthetic but, if preferred, intravenous (twilight) sedation is available at some clinics.
If you have any concerns following the procedure, Dr Marie provides 24-hour aftercare support from our registered nurses via telephone.
