No Scalpel Vasectomy

Men desiring permanent sterilization should consider vasectomy. Vasectomy is the most commonly performed technique for permanent male sterilization. With vasectomy, the vas deferens (small tubes that transport sperm from the testicles) are cut and tied off. As a result, sperm are unable to join the ejaculate.

At Napa Valley Urology Associates we perform a no-scalpel, no needle vasectomy. There is no cutting of the skin with this technique, nor is there any need for placing anesthesia needles into the scrotum. As a result, there is much less physical trauma and pain from the procedure. Many men report little or no pain during and after the procedure. No scalpel, no needle vasectomy generally takes 20-30 minutes and men are able to walk out of the procedure and return to normal activity very quickly. Modern techniques and developments in local anesthesia allow our patients to experience the most advanced approach to vasectomy.
