Usually done in an outpatient setting, a traditional vasectomy involves numbing (local anesthetic) of the scrotum after which 1 (or 2) small incisions are made, allowing a surgeon to gain access to the vas deferens.

The "tubes" are cut and sealed by tying, stitching, cauterization (burning), or otherwise clamped to prevent sperm from entering the seminal stream.

They are reversible and most patients feel minimal pain and return to work within a couple of days.

Medicaid will cover the cost if your primary care physician approves the procedure and there is a mandatory 30 day waiting period between the initial visit to the urologist and the day of surgery.

There is a NO SCALPEL VASECTOMY now available which may reduce healing times as well as lower the chance of infection from incision.
