Single-Visit Vasectomy Service for Northern WA
Pollock Clinics is pleased to offer what we feel is a great vasectomy experience for Bellingham and Whatcom County men.
Our private vasectomy clinic in Vancouver is focused on the convenience and comfort of our clients, and we serve both American and Canadian men with rapid access to quality care. Benefits of our service level include:
You can book directly today for a procedure next week.
We use the most effective and comfortable methods, including optional mild sedation with nitrous oxide.
The price of $450 USD is unbeatable.
Quick and Easy Scheduling. Short Single-Visit Appointment
You shouldn’t have to wait to get what is in reality a fairly simple procedure. You also shouldn’t have to spend too much time worrying on the day of your appointment.
That is why we have two experienced physicians at two different locations to ensure that you are scheduled within days of your call. You can simply book online now and you can make the short trip to Vancouver for a single visit procedure with our private vasectomy service.
Consider the multiple visits many other physicians require in order to get a vasectomy:
Schedule first preoperative appointment
Schedule second appointment for vasectomy (if you even go back)
Schedule third appointment for a follow-up visit
Schedule fourth appointment for the after-vasectomy semen sample testing
Additionally, because both of our physicians are leading global experts in vasectomy and perform the most vasectomies in the region, you can rest assured that your vasectomy with us will be reliable and fast; in fact, the procedure is usually completed in less than 10 minutes.
No Delays, No Stress – Get your vasectomy soon.
You can book directly with us today without a referral from your doctor or involving your insurance company. Procedures at Pollock Clinics are paid directly by the patient. We do not work with insurance programs.
The price for your no-needle no-scalpel procedure may be less than what is would cost to pay for another form of contraception during the wait period for a vasectomy procedure elsewhere – and you can save some money by paying in Canadian dollars ($585 Canadian dollars).
We perform the majority of all vasectomies north of Bellingham – and our clients feel that the fees are worth it to get the Pollock Clinics experience for a once in a lifetime procedure.
Drs. Pollock and Chang, together, have successfully carried out over 35,000 vasectomies over the last 20 years. Their surgical experience and advanced techniques are critical factors in their high success rates (over 99.9%), low complications and short recovery times.
Take a short drive and get a virtually painless vasectomy with world-class vasectomists.
Doctors Neil Pollock and Jack Chang are leaders in teaching and developing the no-scalpel vasectomy method.
Both of our doctors are clinical instructors at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, and both Dr. Chang and Dr. Pollock have travelled abroad on teaching missions to bring the latest vasectomy techniques to physicians around the world.
No-Scalpel, No-Needle, Minimally-Invasive
We use a no-scalpel vasectomy technique where instead of making two 1-inch incisions with a scalpel on each side, a single mid-line puncture just a few millimetres in size is made at the base of the penis and spread open gently to access both vas deferens.
We also offer a safer and improved method of anesthesia called no-needle anesthesia, which eliminates the need for freezing the scrotum with a needle which causes a higher risk of injury to a blood vessel. Instead, a special spray applicator that uses air pressure is employed so that no sharp object enters the scrotum. This method is quicker, safer, less anxiety-provoking and more comfortable for patients.
Optional Nitrous Oxide Sedation for Bellingham Men
If you are concerned about pain or feeling anxious about your procedure, we offer mild sedation with a nitrous oxide inhaler. The nitrous oxide only takes a minute to relax you and the effects are completely gone shortly after the procedure. You will be fine to drive home and go on with your day. Nitrous oxide is available upon request and is part of our effort to enhance your comfort and deliver the smoothest vasectomy experience we can for WA men.
Open-Ended Vasectomy Technique: Less Pain, More Reversible
Our doctors perform an “open-ended” vasectomy technique, where the vas from the lower end of the tube is left open (uncauterized), while the upper end of the tube leading to the penis is cauterized. Historically, the lower end was closed off with cautery during a vasectomy because many providers were worried leaving the lower end open would cause more complications or failures.
Instead, when the bottom end of the vas deferens is allowed to remain open, complications and failures are not increased. In fact, there appears to be less chance of post vasectomy pain and a higher chance of successful vasectomy reversal in the future. Specifically, when the lower end of a vasectomy is closed off, some patients experience build up pressure in the lower end and this pressure can cause swelling and inflammation in the epididymis, especially in the first 2 weeks.
With an open ended approach, sperm is allowed to “leak out” and eventually forms a small granuloma at the opening that serves as a metabolically active “recycling” centre that decompresses the epididymis. This constant recycling and removal of sperm may relieve pressure build up downstream, reduce damage, and increase vasectomy reversal success.
Not all vasectomists around the world perform this technique and prefer to cauterize both ends to ensure a successful vasectomy. At Pollock Clinics, our doctors are able to maintain a high success rate while also offering the potential benefits of an open-ended vasectomy.
Fascial Interposition: With Dissolvable Suture No Metal Clip!
Our doctors also carry out what many studies describe as a crucial step, called fascial interposition. This step involves securing a sheath of healthy tissue between the divided ends to create a physical barrier between the two cut ends.
We accomplish this using a dissolvable suture so that no foreign bodies such as metal clips are left in your scrotum.
