Dr. Mark Hickman, MD, FACS, an expert vasectomy reversal surgeon in New Braunfels, TX, uses a pioneering microsurgical method for reversing vasectomy. He is an expert in laparoscopic surgery techniques. Laparoscopy is a kind of surgical procedure that enables a surgeon to have access to what is inside the abdomen or pelvis using only a small incision, compared to the usual large incisions in typical surgery procedures. The surgeon is able to see what is inside despite only using a small incision through the use of a laparoscope. Dr. Hickman has developed an expertise in laparoscopic procedures and he has even invented a number of surgical instruments for use in this minimally invasive procedure for reversing a vasectomy.
Dr. Hickman was one of the pioneers in the use of laparoscopic surgery, which is a procedure he discovered while undergoing general surgery residency training. Since then, he has focused on the use of microsurgical methods for his practice. He has also taught the minimally invasive method to other surgeons. He has been awarded US patents for the new surgical instruments that he has invented for minimally invasive procedures and he has been recognized as a significant contributor to other essential minimally invasive patents.
Always concerned about the welfare of his patients, Dr. Hickman offers two all-inclusive options for vasectomy reversal cost. One option offers the procedure with oral sedative and local anesthesia at a price of $3,300. The other option is where the procedure is performed with IV sedation that is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. This is priced at $4,200.
To perform the vasectomy reversal, Dr. Hickman will provide microsurgical repair of the vas deferens. The vas is the tube connecting the testes to the urethra where the sperm is ejaculated from during sexual intercourse. Since a vasectomy is a form of birth control, the procedure involves cutting the vas deferens to prevent the sperm from reaching the urethra. In the vasectomy reversal procedure, Dr. Hickman has to find both ends of the vas from the surrounding scar tissue and join them together using a fine nylon suture to provide a watertight closure.
To maximize the chances for success, Dr. Hickman will take a sample fluid from the testicular end of the vas before connecting the two ends. This is to check if there is an epididymal blowout, which means there is an obstruction that is preventing the sperm from getting through. To remedy this, Dr. Hickman will need to perform a vasoepididymostomy in addition to the vasovasostomy. Fortunately for the patient, there will be no additional charge even if the additional procedure has to be performed.
Meanwhile, those who are not from New Braunfels, Texas and also those from other states, can take advantage of a discount for their hotel accommodations. Dr. Hickman has negotiated several deals with local hotels to allow his out of town patients to save as much as 50 percent on their hotel accommodations. He also wants out of town patients to know that New Braunfels is a tourist town. There are a lot of chances for rafting, fishing, tubing, and swimming in the area because of the presence of two of the most scenic rivers in the country. Also present in New Braunfels is Schlitterbah, which the biggest water park in the US.
Founded in 1988 by Dr. Mark Hickman, the practice called Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals by Dr. Mark Hickman benefits from Dr. Hickman’s pioneering techniques for laparoscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery. He completed his general surgery residency training at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and it was during this time that he discovered the microsurgery techniques applied in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He quickly realized the importance of microsurgery in providing a much better experience for his patients. Thus, he decided to focus on using microsurgery for his practice that provides vasectomy reversals. He has already completed thousands of successful vasectomy reversals, resulting in thousands of new pregnancies.
