Vasectomy

Dr. Lazare performs vasectomy upon men who want to become permanently sterile. The procedure is performed under sedation on an outpatient basis.

Is the operation right for me?

You should only consider undergoing a vasectomy if you are sure that you do not ever want to have children. The procedure should be considered irreversible. There is, however, a procedure to reverse or undo a vasectomy. The vasectomy reversal is not always successful.

What are the risks of the procedure?

The main risk is bleeding within the scrotum. This is an uncommon complication.

What are the benefits of the procedure?

*In most patients, the procedure is safe, simple and highly successful.

Is there a relationship between vasectomy and prostate cancer?

No.

The studies that suggested such a relationship were flawed.
