What is a vasectomy reversal?

A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure to cut the tubes (vas deferens) carrying sperm from the testicles to the penis. It is designed as a permanent method of male contraception, however for many reasons some men seek to have this procedure reversed in order to father a child.

BMI Vasectomy Reversal
A vasectomy reversal procedure takes approximately two hours under general anaesthetic, with most patients returning home the same day. There are two techniques to reverse a vasectomy:


Vasovasostomy

The surgeon reattaches the two parts of the vas deferens that were cut in the original procedure through small cuts on each side of the scrotum.


Vasoepididymostomy

If during the vasovasostomy the surgeon finds that there is no seminal fluid in the upper part of the vas deferens, suggesting a blockage, he will attach the lower part of the vas deferens directly to the epididymis (sperm storage site).

How successful is a vasectomy reversal?

The success of a vasectomy reversal is dependent on many factors and the surgeons at BMI Healthcare can advise on whether the procedure may be suitable.  It is worth noting that although eight out of ten men will have sperm in their semen after a reversal, only half of these will have made their partner pregnant after two years.

It is important to ask a particular surgeon for their individual success rate as these can vary according to experience. 

The chances of a successful vasectomy reversal are also increased if the surgeon uses microsurgery, and BMI Healthcare does offer this at a limited number of hospitals, details of which can be obtained by phoning 0800 656 9606 or filling out an online enquiry form here.


Alternatives to vasectomy reversal

If a vasectomy reversal is unsuccessful or considered not suitable, some couples consider a procedure whereby sperm is removed directly from the epididymis or testicle and injected into the partner's egg in a laboratory (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, ICSI).
