How Does a Vasectomy Reversal Work?

A vasectomy reversal utilizes state-of-the-art microsurgical techniques to reconnect the vas deferens, allowing the return of sperm to the semen.


What is the Vasectomy Reversal Process?

Vasectomy reversal is usually performed on an outpatient basis, taking from 2 ½ to 3 ½ hours. The patient can return to his home or a nearby hotel, saving the expense of a hospital stay. Out-of-town patients stay in Denver for one day before returning home.

Vasectomy Reversal: Postoperative Care

Post-operative care includes an office visit several weeks later to evaluate the healing process, and a semen analysis after six weeks. Monthly semen analyses are then obtained for 4-6 months or until the analysis results stabilize.

Vasectomy Reversal Techniques: Vasovasostomy and Epididymovasostomy

The two most widely accepted techniques for vasectomy reversal are the so-called modified two-layer closure (vasovasostomy) and strict two-layer closure (epididymovasostomy). The choice of technique depends largely on the performance of the surgeon as well as the condition of the vas deferens at the time of surgery. In all cases, the surgeon’s goal is to obtain precise alignment of the ends of the vas deferens and achieve a watertight closure.
