Dr. Mark Hickman, MD, FACS, a microsurgery expert in New Braunfels, TX, wants to point out that the vasectomy reversal procedure is not just for men who want to have children again. It is also being used to fight the onset of male depression after the vasectomy. With the reversal procedure, many men have experienced a return to their more masculine days. The emotional effect that men experience after the original procedure can be strong and sometimes may result into anxiety and mental depression.

Oftentimes, it is the men who felt forced into getting a vasectomy who experience an emotional impact after the procedure. Only a small fraction of men who had vasectomy experience a negative emotional impact and this usually happens in those who felt forced or bullied into undergoing the procedure.

Dr. Mark Hickman offers the reversal procedure at two all-inclusive affordable options. This means there are no hidden fees with the first option at $3,300, which includes an oral sedative and local anesthesia. The other option is $4,200 for the reversal procedure done under IV sedation that is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist.

Dr. Hickman has gained the reputation of being one of the leading microsurgeons in the US. He has currently more than 26 years of experience. In that time, he was able to complete over 1,300 vasectomy reversals and he has also made corrections to vasectomy reversals done by other providers.

The reversal procedure involves the microsurgical repair of the vas deferens, which is the tube where the sperm gets transported out of the testes to the urethra during ejaculation. During vasectomy, the two tubes are cut and then sealed to prevent semen from getting out of the body to prevent conception. Thus, the reversal procedure involves finding the ends of the vas deferens, freeing them from the surrounding scar tissue, and joining them together through microsurgical repair using the help of a Zeiss OPMI-MDM operating microscope and using a 10-0 nylon suture, which is much finer than a strand of human hair.

The primary goal of the reversal procedure is to carefully align the lumen of the two ends of the vas deferens and then achieve a water tight closure. To maximize the chances of success of the process, a sample fluid is taken from the testicular end of the vas deferens and this is examined under a laboratory microscope. This fluid ought to contain some sperm but there are three possibilities encountered when examining this fluid sample. The first and best situation is when the fluid is found to contain whole sperm. The second possible scenario, which is more common than the first scenario, is that that the fluid is thin and contains only sperm parts. The third possible situation is that the fluid is thick and pasty and contains no sperm at all.

In the third scenario, a vasoepididymostomy must be performed in addition to the vasovasostomy to remove the obstruction, which is known as an epididymal blowout. Both sites will need repair for a successful outcome but there will be no additional cost for the patient even if both repairs have to be done.

Dr. Mark Hickman completed his residency training in general surgery within a span of five years at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. And it was during this period that he came to know about the microsurgery techniques used by plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Realizing how the minimally invasive procedure can offer a much better experience and outcome for his patients, he decided to specialize in microsurgery techniques and that was what he has focused on since founding his vasectomy reversal practice.
