A vasectomy reversal is a procedure when the cut or resected ends of the vas deferens are reattached. These reconnected segments allow the sperm to enter and ejaculate. This is a specialized microsurgery performed in a surgical setting.

Picking the right urologist to perform your vasectomy reversal does matter! Dr. Russel Williams, MD trained at the world premier microsurgical program at Cornell Medical Center/Presbyterian Hospital in New York City and heads one of the most respected microsurgical centers in Houston. Dr. Williams has extensive experience and performs on average 40 vasectomy reversals a year. Why does this matter? One study found that patients who pick a urologist who performs more than 15 vasectomy reversals a year saw higher rates of pregnancy success than those who performed less than six a year (Wood, 2003).
A vasectomy reversal is a 2-2.5 hour procedure under anesthesia. The vasectomy reversal procedure has a success rate of more than 85%. Results may vary.
