Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy Reversal new jersey

You may want to father a child after having a vasectomy as a result of unforeseen changes in your circumstances or relationships. Approximately 6% of men who undergo vasectomy eventually want children in the future. Vasectomy reversal, which allows couples to try to conceive naturally, is successful in the majority of cases (>90%).

Procedures for Vasectomy Reversal

Two procedures are used to reverse vasectomies:

  • Vasovasostomy
  • Vasoepididymostomy


The most common technique used in vasectomy reversal is vasovasostomy. The cut ends of the vas deferens are sewn back together under a surgical microscope during this three-hour surgery. Before suturing the ends back together, we will examine the fluid coming from the vas deferens still attached to the testicle. If the fluid is thin and/or contains sperm, a vasovasostomy will be performed. If there is no fluid present or it is very thick like toothpaste, we will perform a vasoepididymostomy.

This is a more complex version of a vasectomy reversal. In this procedure, one end of the vas deferens is connected directly to the epididymis, a structure that stores sperm created in the testicle. This surgery is technically more challenging and has a lower success rate than vasovasostomy.
