Best Vasectomy Procedure in Hyderabad
Vasectomy is a surgical procedure used for permanent male sterilization. It involves cutting or sealing the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis. Vasectomy is a safe and effective method of birth control for men who do not wish to father children in the future. At TX Hospitals we had the best surgeons for vasectomy procedures.
Here are the steps involved in a vasectomy procedure:
- Preparation: Before the procedure, you will be asked to shave the scrotum and wash the area with antiseptic soap. You may be given a mild sedative or pain medication to help you relax during the procedure.
- Anesthesia: A local anesthetic will be applied to the scrotum to numb the area. In some cases, a general anesthetic may be used if the patient is particularly anxious or if the procedure is more complex.
- Incision: The surgeon will make one or two small incisions in the scrotum to access the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles. The incisions are usually no more than 1 centimeter in length.
- Cutting or sealing: The surgeon will either cut or seal the vas deferens using a variety of techniques. One of the most common methods involves cutting a small section out of the vas deferens and then sealing the ends with heat or small clamps. This prevents sperm from passing through the tubes.
- Closure: The incisions are closed with sutures or adhesive strips. The scrotum may be wrapped in a bandage or supportive underwear to reduce swelling and discomfort.
- Recovery: After the procedure, you will need to rest for a short period of time to allow the anesthesia to wear off. You may experience some discomfort, swelling or bruising in the scrotum, but these usually go away within a few days. You can resume normal activities within a week, but it is recommended that you avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for several weeks. You will need to use an alternative form of birth control until your doctor confirms that your semen no longer contains sperm.
