The Operation

 

  • A small amount of local anaesthetic is used to numb an area in the scrotal skin using a very fine needle, and once numb, more anaesthetic is infiltrated deeper around the vas (tube carrying the sperm).
  • The operation consists of removing a piece of the vas through a tiny incision in the scrotal skin and cauterizing the ends using diathermy.
  • The procedure is then repeated on the other side.
  • In most cases, only one incision is required. We prefer to use a couple of dissolvable stitches to close the wound, although this is not always necessary. It takes about 2 weeks for the stitches to dissolve.
