Advantages and Benefits of NSV (No-Scalpel Vasectomy):

The primary benefits of NSV versus conventional (incisional or scalpel) vasectomy are:

1. Less Discomfort

2. Ten times fewer complications

3. Faster recovery

 

Will the procedure be painful?

No. Most men describe the sensations as discomfort, not pain. The doctor will apply local anaesthetic via a small needle to the area so that no pain will be felt during the procedure. After surgery you may be a little sore for a few days. Generally, two- or three-day’s rest is enough time for recovery before men can return to work and most normal, non-strenuous physical activity. Sex can usually be resumed 7 days after the procedure. Afterwards, you will be sore for a couple of days, and you might want to take a mild painkiller. But the discomfort is usually less with the no-scalpel technique because there is less injury to the tissues. Your doctor or nurse will provide you with further instructions about what to do after surgery.

 

How will vasectomy affect me?

Vasectomy only interrupts the vas deferens that carry sperm from the testes to where they are added to your semen. It does not alter a man’s sensation of orgasm and pleasure. Your penis and your testes are not altered in any way. The operation has no noticeable impact on the man’s ability to perform sexually, nor does it affect the balance of male hormones, male sex characteristics, or sex drive. As always, testosterone continues to be produced in the testes and delivered into the blood stream. Your body still produces semen, and erections and ejaculations occur normally. As before, the body naturally absorbs unused sperm. The patient will not feel any different physically from the way he felt before. Vasectomy is simply a sterilization procedure; once it has been performed, a man’s semen will no longer contain sperm and he can no longer father a child.

What is NO-SCALPEL VASECTOMY?

No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) is different from a conventional vasectomy in the way the doctor approaches the vas deferens. In addition, an improved method of anaesthesia helps make the procedure less painful. In an NSV, the doctor feels for the vas deferens under the skin and holds them in place with a small clamp. Instead of making two incisions, the doctor makes one tiny puncture with a special instrument. The same instrument is used to gently stretch the opening so the tubes can be reached. The vas deferens is then blocked using the same methods as conventional vasectomy. There is very little bleeding with the no-scalpel technique.

 

Depending on the doctor, NSV can usually be done in about 7 to 15 minutes. Most vasectomies are done right in the doctor’s office, or in a clinic. NSV is a safe, less invasive procedure that reduces vasectomy’s already low complication rate. The NSV was developed in China by Dr. Li Shunqiang in 1974 and introduced to the western world by AVSC International and Dr. Marc Goldstein of the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Cornell Medical Center in 1985. Some 20 million men have undergone NSV since 1974. It has become a standard vasectomy technique in the U.S.
