DrSnip Vasectomy Technique

We Make Vasectomy Safer.

Clinically effective,

Personally preferred.

DrSnip’s vasectomy combines a short recovery time with permanent results.

During your vasectomy we disrupt as little as possible. You’ll be back on your feet the next day and full-scale activities about a week after your procedure. 

Our Technique

Our tools and technique reduce patient discomfort and lessens recovery time.

Technique Details

No Needle,
No Scalpel

We use a hypospray device in place of a needle. We also use scissors instead of a scalpel. The hypospray device is safer way to administer a local anesthetic while also eliminating risks of needles. The anesthetic is consistently delivered and we can manage dosages based on each patient’s unique preferences.

Using special medical scissors offers similar safety and control. Scissors  close shut upon completing a snip, meaning they are safer than a scalpel.

One Small Opening

We perform vasectomy with a single, small opening. Our doctors will guide your vasa deferentia to the middle of your scrotum from the outside. (Men, remember that time you lost the drawstring in the waistband of your jogging pants and you had to gently coax that string back to the opening? That is a very basic analogy of how we start your vasectomy. The medical term is “to palpate” or “palpating.”) Making one small opening means a less invasive procedure, a faster recovery time, and less risk of complications.

Minimal Disruption

We do not insert any clips or clamps since they are not medically necessary. When performing your vasectomy, we separate the vas deferens using a sheath of skin. We’ve found this to be equally effective while reducing recovery time and minimizing patient discomfort. And we use absorbable sutures so that no follow-up appointment is needed.

We do not excise (i.e. remove) any portion of the vas deferens. There no medical need to do it and it would increase recovery time.
