At Pollock Clinics, our doctors use a single-visit, no-scalpel, no-needle, single-puncture, minimally-invasive, open-ended, gentle touch vasectomy technique where instead of making two incisions with a scalpel, a single, minimally invasive puncture is made just a few millimetres at the base of the penis or scrotum and spread open gently to access both vas deferens.
The benefits of our technique include less bleeding, faster healing, and less pain.
Benefits of No-Scalpel Vasectomy
Studies have shown an eight times lower complication rate, quicker healing, and less intra-operative discomfort for a no-scalpel vasectomy compared to the more conventional approach.
Not all vasectomy providers prefer this technique, because it is much harder to learn how to do a vasectomy through a tiny central opening than it is to make sizeable cuts requiring sutures.
Our clinic also uses a different method of anesthesia called “No-Needle” anesthesia, which eliminates the need for a needle entering the scrotum which reduces the risk of blood vessel injury. This is accomplished by using an air pressure device which is quicker, safer, and more comfortable for patients.
The use of air injection no-needle freezing is part of our overall premium private vasectomy experience that we offer to all clients.
