Before the advent of microsurgical vasectomy reversal, vasectomy success rates were only around 79 to 88 percent. Vasectomy success rates have improved tremendously since then, and today, Dr. Wayne Kuang of Southwest Fertility Center for Men has 97% success rate in his patients who undergo the microsurgical reversal of their vasectomies.
Two Types of Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal
New vasectomy reversal microsurgery techniques makes the procedure more reliable than ever. Microsurgery involves the microscopic visualization of the vas deferens and small, precise tools that restore fertility in men. There are two types of vasectomy reversal procedures Dr. Kuang may perform, vasvasostomy or vasoepididymostomy.
Procedure for Your Microsurgical Reversal Vasectomy
Vasectomy reversals begin with the administration of local anesthetic to the scrotal area with “twilight” anesthesia in the office. Dr. Kuang will then make a single mini-incision on the scrotum to locate the vas deferens and the site of the original vasectomy.
Dr. Kuang frees up the healthy ends of the vas deferens away from scar tissue. Fluid will also be extracted from the vas deferens and analyzed to see if it contains complete sperm or sperm parts.
- Vasvasostomy—If complete sperm or sperm parts are present, you’ll receive a vasvasostomy, the most common type of reversal. In this procedure, Dr. Kuang will bring the two ends of the vas deferens back together with tiny sutures right where you had the vasectomy.
- Vasoepididymostomy—If sperm is blocked from entering the vas deferens, Dr. Kuang performs the more complicated reversal. To do this, he bypasses the blockage and connects the vas deferens to the epididymis. (The epididymis is the refinery on the back of the testicle where sperm mature.)
Dr. Kuang developed the “Vasectomy Reversal Predictor” to determine which type of surgery you will need with an accuracy of more than 80%. Whichever microsurgical reversal vasectomy you require, you can depend on Dr. Kuang and his staff to ensure you are comfortable before, during and after the procedure.
