Dr. Mark Hickman from Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals in New Braunfels, Texas, is sharing how his innovations in microsurgery have helped him drive down the price of a vasectomy reversal.
Dr. Hickman is a highly skilled microsurgical practitioner who has made vasectomy reversals his specialization. As a man with strong Christian beliefs, his faith motivates him to offer the vasectomy reversal procedure to as many men and families as possible at the most affordable cost. To help him in his life’s mission, Dr. Hickman draws on the decades of experience he has in laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery, and harnesses its innovations to dramatically reduce the cost of the vasectomy procedure.
At the New Braunfels clinic, Dr. Hickman offers two all-inclusive affordable vasectomy reversal options. The microsurgical vasectomy reversal cost option of $3,300 includes local anesthesia and an oral sedative. The $4,200 option is performed under IV sedation and is administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Both microsurgical options are all-inclusive with no hidden fees.
When asked about how he was able to make the vasectomy reversal procedure so cost-effective, Dr. Hickman says, “Many of my patients ask me - is it possible to reverse a vasectomy and, if so, is it effective? There was a time when the answer wouldn’t have been that simple and the cost would have been prohibitive for me to suggest that my patients go ahead with the procedure. But that was decades ago. Today, the procedure is immensely affordable thanks to the advancements in laparoscopic surgery. We also have a more assured success rate owing to the precise control that the microsurgical tools offer. The procedure is also quicker, allowing us to serve more patients than ever. So, we can offer all-inclusive packages that pass on all the benefits of these scientific advancements to you.”
Dr. Mark Hickman is an expert in laparoscopic procedures with more than 26 years of experience under his belt as a leading minimally invasive surgeon. He has invented several surgical instruments and has been awarded a U.S. patent. He is also recognized as a contributor to several other important minimally invasive patents. To date, he has performed more than 1,300 vasectomy reversals.
After starting his private practice in New Braunfels, TX, in 1988, he soon became an early pioneer of laparoscopic surgery. His other notable accomplishments include serving on the Apostolate Board for the North American Province of the Missionaries of the Holy Family, serving on the Board of Directors of TIPHER (The Institute for Public Education, Health, and Research), and serving the country during Operation Desert Storm aboard the hospital ship USNS Mercy.
During the vasectomy reversal procedure, the patient is first put under local anesthesia, or IV sedation if they choose, and a small incision is made on each side of the scrotal skin. Then, two ends of the vas deferens are found and freed from the surrounding scar tissue. Next, the doctor performs a microsurgical repair of the vas deferens using a Zeiss OPMI-MDM operating microscope utilizing a 10-0 nylon suture. The repair, which requires 10-15 stitches, aims to create a direct and careful alignment of the lumen of the two ends of the vas and a watertight closure.
Several of Dr. Hickman’s patients have graciously thanked him for his services. One patient testimonial says, “Just wanted to share our news with you! Travis had his reversal in January 2013. He never went for the follow-up to have his count tested, so after a year or so of no baby we just assumed that it hadn’t worked, and another baby was not in God’s plan for us especially when he sent us another teenager to adopt. And just as we began the adoption process - we discovered that we were, in fact, pregnant! Travis calls it our two-for-one special, a teenager, and an infant!”
