Microscopic Vasectomy Reversal
Vasectomy reversal refers to two possible procedures: Vasovasostomy, and the more technically advanced, Vasoepididymostomy.
The vasovasostomy is performed under an operating microscope. Dr. Gittens places small sutures in the inner portion of the vas deferens bringing the inner tubing back together. The outer portion of the vas deferens is then approximated and sutured back together.
The vasoepididymostomy is performed when the vasovasostomy is likely to be unsuccessful. Few physicians are qualified to perform this procedure. In order to ensure the best chance of a positive outcome, seeing a doctor qualified in is essential. The decision to perform the vasoepididymostomy is based on whether the tubules (epididymis) that exit the testicle are occluded. If so, Dr. Gittens will find a small tubule before the occlusion and connect the vas deferens to that segment.
