When a man has previously had a vasectomy, but now wishes to father children, advanced methods may be able to reverse the vasectomy and restore the ability to have kids.

During a vasectomy reversal, your urologist can reconnect the ends of your vas deferens (the tube that carries sperm from the testicles to the penis). Once this tube is reconnected, sperm can enter the penis and be part of your ejaculate.

Who Is a Candidate?

Any man who has previously had a vasectomy may be a candidate for vasectomy reversal.

What to Expect

Your urologist will perform your vasectomy reversal on an outpatient basis, meaning you’ll be able to go home the same day after the procedure. You will be under anesthesia (asleep) during the surgery.

After making two small incisions, your urologist will remove the damaged ends of your vas deferens. They’ll take a fluid sample to check for sperm and be sure your vas deferens is not blocked.

Using a microsurgical approach and a high-powered microscope, your urologist will carefully reconnect your vas deferens. After it is reconnected, they will close the small incisions, and your surgery will be complete.

If there is no sperm in the fluid, your urologist will have to perform a more complicated procedure to reconnect your vas deferens. Thanks to advances in surgery, this longer, more complex procedure has the same success rate as simple vasectomy reversals.

In 70 to 95 percent of men, microsurgical vasectomy reversal restores fertility. A vasectomy reversal is more likely to be successful the sooner it is completed after a vasectomy.
