Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals by Dr. Mark Hickman, based in New Braunfels, Texas, is pleased to offer vasectomy reversals at an all inclusive and reasonable cost. Dr. Hickman provides two all-inclusive, affordable options. The first of these is the microsurgical vasectomy reversal, done with local anesthesia. The second option is performed under IV sedation.
The first option for microsurgical vasectomy reversal is done with local anesthesia and an oral sedative for $3,300. The cost for the second option is $4,200, and the reversal procedure is performed under IV sedation. It is administered by a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist. The cost for both microsurgical options are all-inclusive, which means there are no hidden fees. Some of Dr. Hickman’s patients come from all over Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and across the US. To ensure that their patients receive the best care possible, the clinic also offers exclusive arrangements for out-of-town patient accommodation as well.
There are many reasons and factors to consider as to why patients may need to undergo surgery in order to reverse a vasectomy. Vasectomy reversals are not just for male patients who are seeking the procedure so that they can expand their family. A vasectomy reversal is often used to combat the onset of male depression following the original procedure. After undergoing the reversal, most patients have seen a return to their more virile days and a lifting of the ‘male fog’ many experience after a vasectomy.
When the microsurgical vasectomy reversal is done under local anesthesia, a small incision is made on each side of the scrotal skin. Dr. Hickman will then perform a microsurgical repair of the vas deferens with a Zeiss OPMI-MDM operating microscope and fine nylon suture, which is much finer than a human hair. A typical repair for this procedure requires around 10-15 stitches. The goal of the surgery is to create a direct and careful alignment of the lumen of the two ends of the vas deferens and to ensure a watertight closure for a higher success rate. After this, a sample of fluid from the testicular end of the vas deferens is placed on a glass slide and examined under laboratory microscope. Since the testicle continues to produce sperm even after a vasectomy, the fluid from the vas deferens could contain sperm.
There are three possible situations which will be observed when examining the fluid sample. The first and best situation is that the fluid will contain whole sperm. The second possibility, and the most common, is that the fluid is thin and contains only sperm parts or no whole sperm. The third possibility is that the fluid is thick, pasty and contains no sperm. This last situation is usually an indicator of an obstruction called an epididymal blowout. This means that the vas is obstructed at two levels, at the vasectomy site and by rupture of the tube in the epididymis. In this situation, the clinic’s vasectomy reversal surgeons explain that a procedure called the vasoepididymostomy must be performed.
The surgeon cannot make this determination by examining the age of vasectomy but only by examination of the semen. Both sites will require repair for a successful outcome, and these procedures can be done simultaneously. In both options offered by Dr. Hickman, including this procedure will not incur an additional cost. Patients can have both repairs performed during their vasectomy reversals.
