Where can I find private vasectomy in the UK?

As one of the country's largest private hospital groups, Spire Healthcare is able to provide private vasectomy operations at 38 comfortable and fully equipped hospitals throughout the UK.

Why have a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is a permanent and effective form of contraception for men who know that they do not want to father any more children.  It involves a minor surgical procedure to cut the tube that carries sperm from the testes to the penis, meaning that any semen ejaculated does not contain sperm.  Vasectomy does not affect sex drive or sexual performance in any way and is a quicker, more effective and technically easier procedure than female sterilisation.

Private vasectomy at Spire Healthcare

Spire Healthcare offers two types of vasectomy, the conventional procedure and the new, minimally invasive no-scalpel technique:

Conventional vasectomy

Conventional vasectomy is performed under local anaesthetic, takes around 20 minutes and is over 99% effective.  Two small incisions are made on each side of the scrotum and the sperm carrying tubes are cut, a small section is removed from each and they are then tied or heat sealed.  The incisions are closed with adhesive strips or dissolvable stitches and any discomfort or swelling normally settles down after a few days.  As it is a difficult and expensive procedure to reverse, vasectomy is only recommended for men who are sure that they do not want any more children.

No-scalpel vasectomy

No-scalpel vasectomy is a safe new keyhole form of the procedure.  The sperm carrying tubes are accessed through tiny puncture holes in the scrotum and a special pair of forceps is used to cut and tie the tubes.  The procedure involves less bleeding than a conventional vasectomy and no stitches are necessary.  Early indications seem to be that no-scalpel vasectomy is less painful and is associated with fewer complications compared to the conventional method.
