Many people are unaware of the different parts of the male anatomy that play a part in restoring fertility during a vasectomy reversal procedure. The major structures of male urology anatomy involved in restoring fertility include:
The testicles are the part of the male urology anatomy that create sperm. The testicles send spermatozoa to the epididymis to mature in order to gain the ability to swim and to fertilize and egg.
This area in the scrotum is where spermatozoa (sperm that is unable to swim) is stored for a few months in order to gain the maturity needed to gain full function. During sex, the sperm flow out of the epididymis through the vas deferens to reach the penis in order to form ejaculate.
This is a small duct in the scrotal area that connects the two parts of the epididymis and the ejaculatory ducts in order to move collected sperm. During the original vasectomy procedure, the vas deferens would have been clipped or severed and capped, depending on the doctor who completed the surgery, in order to prevent ejaculate from reaching the penis. During the reversal procedure, this part of the male urology anatomy is reconnected to restore the flow.
The scrotum is the area behind/below the penis that encapsulates many parts of the male reproductive system, including the vas deferens, epididymis and testicles. The scrotum is where our experienced vasectomy reversal doctor, Dr. Kuang, will make a small incision in order to reverse the original procedure.
