Yes, Advanced Urology Institute offers vasectomy procedures. A vasectomy is a permanent male birth control method performed by a urologist. The procedure involves cutting or sealing the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This prevents sperm from mixing with semen, resulting in sterile ejaculate. Vasectomies are typically done under local anesthesia, and the surgeon may use a conventional incision method or a no-scalpel technique, depending on the patient’s preference and circumstances.

Dr. James Renehan explains vasectomy as a safe, effective birth control option. It’s a 10-15 min outpatient procedure, done under local anesthesia or sedation. Recovery is easy with ice packs and rest, and it’s less invasive than tubal ligation for women.

Dr. Rivera emphasizes that vasectomy is an easier option than tubal ligation. The procedure takes 10-15 minutes with few complications, while birth control pills may cause side effects and tubal ligation is a more invasive surgery for women.


A vasectomy is a minimally invasive medical procedure that is considered a relatively safe and effective form of contraception for couples. It is a form of male sterilization that involves the surgical interruption of the vasa deferentia, the tubes that transport sperm from the testicles to the prostate. When a man undergoes a vasectomy, the function of the vasa deferentia is inhibited thus preventing the man from being able to father a child.

Vasectomy is a permanent sterilization procedure for men, intended to be a safe, effective, and long-term method of birth control. It is an outpatient procedure for men who no longer want to or are unable to father children. While men may know that a vasectomy will prevent them from being able to have biological children, there are other important facts pertaining to its long-term effects that men need to know before making this decision.

Although the different alternatives to vasectomy have similar rates of effectiveness, it is important to consider when making a decision. Reversible vasectomy has variable success rates depending on the amount of time since the initial vasectomy. Female sterilization is generally very effective, with a failure rate of approximately 1 in 400. Barrier methods also have variable success rates depending on the type and how it is used.
