No needle, no scalpel vasectomy patient
March 14, 2017 | by The Polyclinic

One of the advantages of no scalpel, no needle vasectomy is that it provides a treatment option that helps overcome concern or fear of experiencing pain or discomfort often associated with vasectomy. Most men who have a no scalpel vasectomy report less discomfort during and after the procedure.

What is a no scalpel vasectomy?

“No needle” refers to a special spray gun that can inject anesthetic in a spray form, through the skin, and around the vas deferens, a muscular tube that transports sperm to the urethra.

The no needle anesthetic is a more complete anesthetic, resulting in less trauma, faster recovery and more comfort during the procedure.

“I think some folks think that there is a way to do a vasectomy thoroughly noninvasively,” says Dr. Joseph Marquez, a urologist at The Polyclinic. “The no scalpel, no needle vasectomy is the least invasive way to do a vasectomy.”

Listen to Dr. Marquez explain the benefits of the no scalpel, no needle vasectomy procedure.
