The microsurgical vasectomy reversal operation uses a high powered operating microscope to achieve a microsurgical anastomosis. The operation is carried out under general anaesthetic and lasts on average 2-2.5 hours. Operations are carried out in the morning with patients usually being discharged the following day. Find out more about the operation.
Operation Success Rates
Success rates are high and are about 90% of all reversal operations at The Vasectomy Reversal Clinic. A successful operation is defined as one where viable spermatozoa (sperms) are found in a semen sample taken after the operation. Success rates are even higher on average where vasectomies were just a few years prior to the reversal operation. Comprehensive data are recorded on all operations carried out at the clinic.
If the patient wishes to preserve either spermatozoa or testicular tissue for future use then these can be retrieved during the vasectomy reversal operation. The spermatozoa are assessed for cryopreservation (freezing) by an embryologist in theatre to determine its quality and quantity.
