Microsurgery is an umbrella term for several techniques of surgery that rely on the use of a microscope. The biggest application of microsurgery is found in medical disciplines such as plastic surgery, gynecology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, pediatrics, and more. Microsurgery is a very efficient method of transferring tissue from one part of the body to another or reattaching severed parts. The latter application of microsurgery is the one that is used to reverse a vasectomy. A vasectomy reversal involves the rejoining of the two ends of the vas deferens, the long tube that transfers mature sperm to the urethra during ejaculation that is severed during a vasectomy.
There are two ways to reverse a vasectomy: A vasovasostomy which involves recreating the vas deferens to vas deferens connection and a vasoepididymostomy which creates an epididymis to vas deferens connection. The determination of which of the aforementioned two surgery techniques is required is done by assessing whether there is another possible obstruction above the site of the existing vasectomy. To make this assessment, the testicular end of the vas deferens is compressed and inspected for fluid. The fluid is then examined with a microscope for color, consistency, and sperm.
If the fluid obtained from the end of the vas deferens has normal-appearing sperm with motility, has mostly normal-appearing nonmotile sperm, has mostly nonmotile sperm heads without tails, or only sperm heads, a vasovasostomy is recommended as it indicates that a secondary epididymal obstruction has not occurred. If the fluid has no sperm and is creamy in texture or fluid is present, it is an indication that an epididymal obstruction is present and the only way to fix it is an epididymis to vas deferens connection, a vasoepididymostomy.
Dr. Mark Hickman talks about the vasectomy reversal procedure offered by Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals in New Braunfels by saying, “At our clinic, we use a powerful operating microscope and fine nylon suture for the procedure. The microscope we use is the Zeiss OPMI-MDM, one of the best in the business for procedures such as this. The nylon suture is rated at 10-0 and it is built specifically for microsurgery. It has a thickness that is much finer than human hair, giving it the utility of being used in such a delicate procedure. A typical vasectomy reversal procedure requires around 10 to 15 stitches. To ensure a higher success rate, we focus on creating a direct and careful alignment of the lumen of the two ends of the vas and watertight closure. The patient is under local anesthesia during the procedure and doesn’t feel a thing. If you are insistent on being completely sedated during the procedure, we can arrange that too for a slightly higher cost. The procedure is quick and it can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours depending on the complexity of the patient’s anatomy. You can resume your normal schedule after 2 days of the procedure and any vigorous activity such as working out or running can be resumed after 2 weeks of the procedure.”
Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals offers two all-inclusive affordable options with no hidden fees. The $3,300 option includes local anesthesia and an oral sedative. The $4,200 offer is performed under IV sedation and is administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist.
