Restoring Your Fertility With Vasectomy Reversal 

Vasectomy Reversal Surgery

Vasectomy reversal is a delicate microsurgical procedure. There are two surgical techniques that may be used to restore your fertility. Vasovasostomy, the more common of the two, involves reattaching the ends of the van deferens together. If, however, Dr. Lipshultz does not find sperm and fluid in the vas deferens during your operation, an epididymovasostomy will be performed. This technique involves the connection of the vas deferens directly to the epididymis, a long tube where sperm are stored and transported from the testis into the vas.

Treatment Costs

Since vasectomy reversal is not covered by most health insurance policies, it is important that patients speak with our financial specialists about the cost of treatment. Patients should understand that the operation will actually encompass three fees: the surgeon’s fee, the anesthesiologist’s fee, and the surgical facility fee. Patients who choose to bank their sperm will also be billed separately for that service. Although we strive to keep our costs competitive, we also refuse to compromise our patients' safety or the quality of our care.
