Dr. Mark Hickman, MD, FACS, a microsurgeon in New Braunfels, TX, wants to emphasize that using his laparoscopic techniques it is possible to ensure a high degree of success for the vasectomy reversal procedure that he performs. Dr. Hickman has already performed thousands of successful vasectomy reversals throughout this 26 year career. He is an expert in the laparoscopic surgical procedure for reversing a vasectomy. This is a minimally invasive form of surgery that is also known as keyhole surgery.
Vasectomy reversal is a surgical procedure with the purpose of reconnecting the male reproductive tract, that was cut during the vasectomy procedure. The vasectomy reversal can be achieved two ways. One is through vasovasostomy (vas deferens to vas deferens connection) and the other way is through vasoepididymostomy (epididymis to vas deferens connection).
Dr. Hickman says, “Although vasectomy is considered a permanent form of contraception, advances in microsurgery have improved the success of vasectomy reversal procedures. The procedures remain technically demanding and expensive, and may not restore the pre-vasectomy condition in some situations. In order to assess for the presence of possible obstruction above the vasectomy site, the testicular end of the vas deferens can be compressed and inspected for fluid. This fluid is examined with a microscope for color, consistency and for sperm.”
If the fluid taken from the testicular end does not contain any sperm or sperm parts, this means that there is an epididymal obstruction, which means that a vasoepididymostomy, which means establishing a connection between the epididymis and vas deferens, has to be considered to restore sperm flow. If there is an epididymal blowout, Dr. Hickman may need to perform a vasoepididymostomy in addition to a vasovasostomy but this does not mean that there will be an additional cost for the patient.
Dr. Mark Hickman is on a mission to discourage men from getting a vasectomy and encourage those who had a vasectomy to get a vasectomy reversal. That is why he strives to make the vasectomy reversal cost as low as possible and he is currently offering two all-inclusive options. The term “all-inclusive” means the price quoted is what the patient will be paying. This assures the patient that there are no hidden costs and there will be no surprises when it is time to pay the bill.
The first all-inclusive option is priced at $3,300 and this includes the use of an oral sedative and local anesthesia. The second all-inclusive option is priced at $4,200 and includes IV sedation provided by a board certified anesthesiologist. Those who are interested or have questions can contact the practice for a free consultation.
Meanwhile, Dr. Hickman is also inviting those who are from other places in Texas to come to New Braunfels and even those who are from other states. New Braunfels is a tourist town and is an ideal location for those who are looking for a memorable vacation experience. It is a German town with a lot of boutiques, antique shops and many exciting festivals. Some of the top things to do in New Braunfels include: kayaking, floating, or paddleboarding down the Guadalupe River or the Comal River. Both rivers are popular for being the most picturesque in the country. There is also Gruene Hall, which is the oldest dance hall in Texas, having been built in 1878. Dr. Hickman has alsao made exclusive travel deals with local hotels to allow his out-of-town patients to save as high as 50 percent on their hotel accommodation.
