Dr. Mark Hickman, a surgeon in New Braunfels, TX, who is focused on using a microsurgical technique that he developed to reverse a vasectomy, has explained that he is offering all-inclusive affordable options for the cost of the surgery. Dr. Hickman offers an all-inclusive cost for the procedure, which is currently being used to fight the onset of male depression after vasectomy. Thus, the reversal procedure is not just for men who want more children but it is also being used to fight male depression. His patients have been able to achieve a return to those days when they were more virile. What Dr. Hickman does is a microsurgical repair of the vas deferens, using a fine nylon suture and a powerful operating microscope.
Dr. Hickman offers two affordable options. One option costs $3,300 and this includes an oral sedative and local anesthesia. The other option costs $4,200 and this is performed under IV sedation that is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist. Both are all-inclusive and have no hidden costs.
His patients come from various places in Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and across the United States. Thus, Dr. Hickman also offers help with the accommodations for patients who come from out of town. He has exclusive travel deals with local hotels that will allow patients to save as much as 50 percent on their hotel bills.
Dr. Hickman, who is one of the few vasectomy reversal surgerons in the US has over 26 years of experience as a top minimally invasive surgeon. He has already completed over 1,300 vasectomy reversals and he has also corrected several vasectomy reversals from other providers.
The goal of the vas deferens microsurgical repair that is performed by Dr. Hickman is to establish a direct and careful alignment of the lumen of the two ends of the vas and a watertight closure for a much higher success rate.
Dr. Hickman will obtain a sample of fluid form the testicular end of the vas deferens and this is examined using a laboratory microscope. There are three possible situations. The first situation, which is considered to be the best, is that the fluid contains whole sperm. The second possible situation is the fluid is thin and does not contain a whole sperm but only sperm parts. And the third situation is the liquid is thick and pasty and has no sperm, which means that the vas deferens has an obstruction known as an epididymal blowout. The obstruction is at two levels: one the site of the vasectomy and the other is a rupture of the tube in the epididymis. For this situation, in addition to vasovasostomy, a vasoepididymostomy must also be performed. Vasoepididymostomy is a microscopic invagination of the epididymal tube into the lumen of the vas deferens using 10-0 nylon sutures. There will be no additional cost if both repairs are to be performed.
Several patients of Dr. Hickman have provided highly positive reviews, providing evidence that the procedure that he uses really works. For instance, Dave W. gave the practice five stars and said, “I cannot express my gratitude towards Dr Hickman! My son passed away at 13. Which was 12 years after my vasectomy. A couple years later we decided we’d like to try and have children again. So after nearly 15 years of being sterile and a lot of research, we flew to Texas and met with Dr Hickman. Best decision ever! He was extremely professional and real about what to expect. The success chances were low but nonetheless there would be a chance. 3 years after the reversal we were pregnant and couldn’t have been more excited! 6 years post surgery, we have 3 baby boys! Our middle baby boy, turned out God needed him more than we did at a month old, however he was born healthy and never experienced any issues. I’m writing this review 9 years post surgery.”
