What Is No Scalpel Vasectomy?

No Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) may be considered a form of ‘keyhole surgery’ and was pioneered by The Chinese.

Traditional vasectomy requires incisions and stitches on both sides. The No scalpel method, however, requires a single small incision at the front of the scrotum.

Because the incision is shallow, no stitches are needed and healing time is minimal.

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

FROM START TO FINISH

  • You go from the consultation room to the procedure room.
  • You’re asked to (only) remove your shoes and lie on the couch at this stage! A hot water bottle is applied.
  • The electric couch lifts to the correct height, and the doctor asks you to lower your clothes to your shins.
  • The doctor does the “wash down” with warmed antiseptic solution.
  • You have the choice of ‘no needle anaesthesia’ or ‘fine needle’ anaesthesia.
  • The doctor starts with the left side with a specialised instrument that is applied to the left tube.
  • The left tube is electro-cauterised, separated, and the end is sealed by its own covering.
  • The right tube is brought up through the same small hole & the procedure repeated on the right side.
