Self Pay Procedures

Vasectomy

Vasectomy- Non-Scalpel Method

Price: £495 includes same day assessment, local anaesthetic operation and follow up semen testing.

Our package for self-paying patients offers short waiting times to see a Surgeon of your choice. Our Day Case Surgical Centre provides a comfortable, welcoming environment where you can relax knowing you are in safe hands. Also with our fixed cost care package you have the reassurance of knowing what you will pay before your treatment has commenced.

The surgery is under local anaesthetic and lasts about 30 minutes. You may have some pain and swelling following the procedure but you should be able to return to work in two to three days in most cases.

After surgery, we will check your semen to make sure no sperm is present. You should use alternative contraception until these tests are complete. Your post vasectomy sample is done after sixteen weeks.
