Vasectomy is one of the most effective, and reliable methods of birth control.
More than 4 million vasectomies are performed worldwide each year. Men are increasingly more willing to accept the responsibility for birth control.
Men's primary concern regarding vasectomy is the fear of pain and complications.
As shown in the table below, historical studies on vasectomy report a wide range of complications and varying degrees of patient pain.
The PVP procedure is the less invasive alternative to traditional vasectomy. The PVP is a method used to bring the vas to the skin with gentle manipulation, stretch the skin open instead of cutting it, clip the vas with inert titanium clips, divide it and return the vas to its normal position in a manner that reduces tissue damage and pain.
The PVP significantly reduces pain and complications when compared to traditional vasectomy.
The cost of the PVP is equivalent to the cost of a traditional vasectomy procedure.
Check with our office regarding cost, and your health insurer regarding procedure and device coverage.
