A vasectomy is a surgical procedure performed in males as a form of sterilization and permanent birth control. It is considered one of the safest and most effective means of birth control. Over 500,000 men in North America choose vasectomies. Vasectomies are 99.6% effective according to current research.
The Y Factor uses the no-scalpel method of vasectomy. A local anesthetic is administered through a vapor spray administered into the skin. This no-needle method provides less discomfort and bruising.
The no-scalpel, no-needle method of vasectomy requires no incision. The vas deferens, which carry the sperm to the seminal vesicles, is resected through a small puncture site.
Most procedures are performed only with local anesthetic, however nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available.
All patients will meet with one of our specialty trained urological medical providers for a consultation to go over the no-scalpel vasectomy procedure before scheduling an appointment for the actual procedure with Dr. Williams.
