Conventionally, vasectomy has been a surgical procedure to sterilize a male’s reproductive organs. It is one of the very few permanent methods used to prevent pregnancy and hence child birth.

Techniques for Vasectomy in Des Moines’ Lakeview Center for Urology

There are several different techniques for the vasectomy. Your doctor will choose one of the following depending on their preferred method and which one would work better for you.

No Scalpel

This type of vasectomy is conducted using a hemostat instead of using a scalpel. A hole is punctured in the scrotum. The incision required is much smaller than a cut and has less risk of infection. This method also usually does not require any kind of stitching.

Open Ended

This type of vasectomy makes sure that the ends of the vas deferens are not sealed which lets sperm continue to go into the scrotum. It is said that this method helps to prevent any scrotum pain in the future.

No Needle

During a vasectomy you must be numbed before the operation can begin. Most people do not like needles so the local anesthesia in this method comes from a jet injection tool that does not require use of needles.

Fascial Interposition

This type of vasectomy positions the vas deferens away from anywhere where they may reconnect or cause problems ensuring no future problem with a failed vasectomy.

Vas Irrigation

This type of vasectomy injects sterile water or a sperm killing agent that kills all of the sperm at one time. Some surgeons use this method as an aide during regular vasectomies to ensure sperm death.
