You don’t need a referral from your doctor to have a vasectomy procedure at Vasectomy Toowoomba. Simply contact us and we can organise a pre-care consultation and book you straight in for a vasectomy appointment. Total time needed for the consultation and vasectomy is 45 minutes. Your consultation and vasectomy procedure will take place on the same day with a specialist vasectomy doctor. Only a local anaesthetic is required.
Our vasectomy doctor offers a high quality service for the fast, relatively painless, NO NEEDLE, NO SCALPEL Vasectomy procedure. Relatively new and very popular. Depending on the kind of work that you do, you should be able to return to work the day after your procedure. This is the case for people who predominantly work behind a desk or counter. However, if your role involves any kind of heavy lifting, reaching, stretching, or other physical exertion you may want to request to be put on light duties for your first week back at work. If this is not possible, you will need to take the week off work (we can provide medical certificates upon request) to recover properly before you return. No referral is needed to make an appointment
No Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) is a technique developed in China in 1974 and is now the recommended method of choice throughout the world, being used extensively in the USA, UK, China and many other countries. Vasectomy is considered irreversible. In vasectomy, the tubes carrying sperm (vas deferens) from the testicles are blocked or cut. This prevents sperm mixing with the semen, making the man sterile. In traditional vasectomy, two incisions (cuts) are made in the scrotum and through these each vas is located, cut and both ends tied. The skin wounds are closed with stitches. NSV differs in the way the local anaesthetic is administered and in that a single "keyhole" entry is made to both vasa (you have a single wound). There is no cutting of tissues as in traditional vasectomy. Vasectomy Toowoomba uses a refinement of the no-scalpel method that doesn’t involve any needles at all. An instrument called a MadaJet delivers a stream of anaesthetic so fine that it penetrates the skin and numbs a coin-sized patch of scrotal skin.
A vasectomy is a surgical procedure for men who have decided not to have more, or any, children. Vasectomy is the only permanent method of contraception for men and has a failure rate significantly lower than 0.1%. Vasectomy procedures are one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in Australia, with over 23,000 men getting one each year.
The vasectomy procedure involves separating the tubes that move sperm from the testicles to the penis. After the procedure, ejaculation will contain no sperm. Sperm is the component that leads to pregnancy, and after a vasectomy it will be reabsorbed into your body through your tissue instead of being integrated into your semen.
Vasectomy Toowoomba aims to provide the highest quality of care for all men and be thorough and consistent in the early detection, treatment and management of urology and vasectomy consultations and procedures.
