Vasectomy

Alaskan Interior Urology

Vasectomy

Vasectomy is the most common form of male surgical sterilization. During a vasectomy, Dr. Huffer and the experienced team at Alaskan Interior Urology cut or block off the small tubes in the scrotum that carry sperm. It is generally a quick procedure and is almost 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.
During the vasectomy, Dr. Huffer makes one or two small openings in the skin of the scrotum. Through these openings, the vas deferens, which are the tubes that carry sperm, are divided so that sperm cells may no longer reach the urethra. The tubes are divided, blocked off with surgical clips, and closed with an electrical current. Most vasectomies are performed in the office using local numbing medication, however, the procedure can be done under anesthesia for those who wish.

After The Vasectomy

Following the procedure, it is common to expect some minor bruising and redness at the site of the incision. There are no bandages and there are no stitches to remove. The sutures dissolve within 5-10 days. A small amount of yellow or white discharge as the sutures dissolve is common. You may notice a small open gap at the site of the incision after the sutures dissolve that will close up over time. You may notice some firmness in the area around the procedure site. It will soften, flatten, and return to normal within a few weeks.
To facilitate a speedy recovery, please adhere to the following instructions post-procedure:
