Vasectomy Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley

At Rockwell Centers for Sexual Medicine & Wellness, we recognize that a vasectomy is a life-altering decision. That’s why you can entrust Dr. Paul Gittens, a specialist in virtually painless, in-office, no-scalpel vasectomy procedures. We provide consultations either telemedicine or live.  We also provide consultations on the same day as your vasectomy for added convenience.

For added comfort, we provide the option of Nitronox in our Philadelphia office (only),  a self-inhaled gas that enhances your experience during the procedure, allowing you to drive home afterward.

We also provide you with your own Semen Analysis kit free of charge that will give you the  assurance your vasectomy was successful. 

Dr. Paul Gittens – Leading Vasectomy Specialist

Dr. Gittens is dedicated to ensuring your vasectomy experience is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. He specializes in the virtually painless No Scalpel Vasectomy Technique, which is not only efficient but also less time-consuming. Unlike hospital or surgical center procedures, we conduct vasectomies right in our office. Dr. Gittens employs a specialized minimally invasive no-scalpel technique, offering superior pain control and fewer complications compared to traditional vasectomies.

Experience the Virtually Painless No Scalpel Vasectomy

For men seeking a vasectomy surgeon, the Rockwell Centers for Sexual Medicine and Wellness is the place where expertise meets comfort. The No Scalpel Vasectomy Technique is virtually pain free and lasts less than 20-30 minutes. We perform our procedure in the office and NOT  in a hospital or surgical center for 99% of our patients. Dr. Gittens performs a specialized minimally invasive no-scalpel technique, which results in better pain control and fewer complications than the conventional vasectomy.

The vasectomy is an in-office procedure that is performed by separating the two tubes (vas deferens) on both sides of your scrotum responsible for sperm delivery. It should be considered a permanent form of contraception, although a vasectomy reversal can be performed successfully if necessary.

Nitronox™  –  Even MORE comfort during your vasectomy

Nitronox is a delivery system that provides a gas mixture of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen. It is used to help ease discomfort during some medical and aesthetic procedures. If you experience any discomfort or anxiety during your treatment, you are able to inhale the gas mixture through a mask or mouthpiece, as needed. You’ll be fully awake, responsive and breathing on your own through the entire process. You will also be able to drive your self home afterwards.

Common reasons for Considering a Vasectomy

  • You do not wish to have any more children.
  • It is less risky for you to undergo the procedure than for your partner.
  • Financially, having another child would be challenging.
  • You or your partner cannot use birth control or experience side effects.
  • Another child would jeopardize your partner’s health.
  • You have never desired children.

Is the vasectomy an effective form of birth control?

While a vasectomy is indeed the most effective form of birth control short of abstinence, it does not produce immediate sterility. It takes several weeks for patients to become sterile and this must be confirmed with a semen analyses before stopping alternative birth control methods.

Vasectomy Recovery

After the procedure, we recommend returning home and avoiding strenuous activity for 48 hours. Applying an ice pack for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off while relaxing can help with any discomfort. Most men can return to work the next day.

Do I need a Semen Analysis after my vasectomy?

Several weeks after your vasectomy you are still fertile and you may be able to conceive. You are not able to have unprotected sex until after you have a semen analysis with minimal non moving sperm.  At Rockwell Centers we provide you with a Semen Analysis kit free of charge which will allow you to obtain your semen analysis at 10 weeks.
