Vasectomy Clinic - Brisbane & Gold Coast - The Vasectomist Dr Dick


In a nutshell, Dr ‘Dick’ Beatty is a professional Vasectomist, dedicated to providing customers with a comfortable experience.

The driving force behind my vasectomy practice is that every procedure has to be a good experience.


How do you hold back the bombshell ‘Honey, I’m pregnant!’ 

How do you play ball with your partner who drops the hint that she is ‘over hormones?’

Guys are not used to grabbing a front seat in the contraception department. ‘No worries, mate, she’ll be right’ doesn’t work for contraception.

The good news is that Vasectomy is the most effective form of contraception, and works out as the cheapest form of contraception over the long term. Better than a ‘kick up the backside!’ In fact, the out of pocket cost of a vasectomy is similar to a single insertion of an Intrauterine device, not withstanding that an IUD needs re-inserting every few years.

The snip is ‘gentle as’ and is very safe with a 2% overall risk of any complications.

Getting the snip might be a no brainer, but you need to be as sure as you can that you don’t want any more (or any) kids. You should assume that vasectomy is irreversible though it doesn’t hurt to know that open ended vasectomy is the most reversible type of vasectomy.

When all’s said and done, over half of Australian men get the snip. Good Onya!

  • Take a breath, hop on the couch, pull your pants and jocks down to just below the knee
  • Music or Netflix is ready
  • Doctor puts some antiseptic on your nether regions
  • A drape covers your private area
  • A quick exam will make sure everything is good to go
  • The world’s smallest needle goes into your skin – while you chat, listen to music, check your messages, or watch TV
  • Time for me to do my job – which takes about 20-30 minutes (further details below)

The Most Up-to-date Procedure


Traditional vasectomy requires incisions and stitches on both sides of the sac. NSV leaves a small 3mm hole at the front of the scrotum. There are no stitches, so you don’t have to come back for stitch removal.

Minimal trauma to the tissue also means you can return to work and physical activities sooner.


The ‘holy grail’ of no scalpel vasectomy. Closed vasectomy has a 10% failure rate. Open ended vasectomy leaves the lower vas deferens open so sperm can ‘leak’ out. It has a much lower failure rate and less post-procedure discomfort.

Takes longer and requires finer surgical skills than a closed no scalpel vasectomy.


This is the part where I do my job.

  • The skin is ‘stretched open’ with a no scalpel vasectomy instrument.
  • The left tube is found and lifted through a 3 mm hole.
  • The upper section of the tube is sealed with electrocautery.
  • The tube is now cut. The two ends naturally separate by 2-3 cm.
  • The outside layer of tissue (fascia) is pulled over the upper end, and secured in place with an absorbable stitch. The upper end is now trapped inside its fascia, whilst the lower end is left outside its fascia. The upper and lower ends are now nicely separated.
  • The tube is simply dropped back inside the sac.
  • The right side is gently pulled out through the same hole, and the process repeated.
  • A dressing is applied, and you’re good to go.
