Vasectomy Procedure (Male Sterilisation)

Book your appointment

Have your vasectomy performed as a private procedure with one of our consultant urologists. We do not require a referral from your GP, meaning you can get a vasectomy done as soon as you wish.


What is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy is an operation to cut and seal off the tubes (called the vas deferens) that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis. This is a commonly performed procedure for adult males as it restricts their ability to father any more children. You can have a vasectomy done as a day case surgery as the procedure usually takes about 20 minutes under local anaesthetic.


Why would you have a vasectomy?

Vasectomies are a very effective method of permanent contraception and men who are sure they no longer want to have children can benefit from the peace of mind a vasectomy offers. Vasectomies are more than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy but a vasectomy doesn’t offer protection against sexually transmitted infections, so many men continue to use a condom after their surgery.


What is a "non-scalpel" vasectomy (NSV)?

The non-scalpel vasectomy technique involves making a very small incision in the middle of the scrotum which will heal without stitches. The non-scalpel method is a popular choice because there are no major incisions so the recovery is much more comfortable and quicker than a traditional vasectomy. Further benefits are that the smaller incision means there is a reduced risk of bleeding or infection and there is also no scarring.


How effective is a vasectomy?

A vasectomy of any type is considered as one of the most effective means of protection from pregnancy. Although no procedure is totally safe or effective, the failure rate is less than one percent. Couples who want a highly reliable and permanent form of contraception often opt for a vasectomy as the success rate is over 99%.


Why choose Pall Mall Medical?

We do not require you to seek a referral from your NHS GP, meaning that you can call us to book an appointment when you decide to go ahead with the procedure. Non-scalpel vasectomy is performed under local anaesthetic in a sterile theatre setting. This procedure is available at Manchester, Liverpool and Newton-le-Willows.

If you would like to find out which option is the best for you, or you would like to go ahead with a vasectomy under general anaesthetic, please book an initial consultation with one of our consultant urologists for £225.
