From Urologic Studies...

" The available evidence indicates that use of a minimally-invasive vas isolation procedure such as the no-scalpel vasectomy technique results in less discomfort during the procedure and in fewer postoperative complications." -

No-Scalpel Vasectomy was developed to increase the acceptability of vasectomy and lower the risk of complications. Today, both patients and physicians prefer this minimally invasive technique. Also, many teaching organizations have made No-Scalpel (NSV) a standard for training physicians and residents.

Is No-Scalpel Vasectomy right for your practice? To help you to decide, consider some important facts...

  • 10x fewer complications than traditional vasectomy.
  • Often guarantees word of mouth referral.
  • Has an excellent time/revenue ratio.
  • Can be performed in 10 mins.
  • No large initial investment.

Patients love the procedure's suture-less, single small wound and its reduced post-operative swelling.

Moreover, because the opening is so tiny, there is much less risk of infection, recovery time is usually shorter, and the healed site is virtually invisible.

Two unique instruments are used to perform the procedure: a specially designed vas ring fixation clamp and a curved dissector.

Then the dissector is used to puncture the skin and vas sheath and to stretch a small opening in the scrotum. The vas is delivered with the same dissector and occluded employing any effective method.

NSV Generates Revenue...

If you type "vasectomy" into any popular internet search engine, you will see the vast number of vasectomy physician websites and paid listing sites.

The truth is that vasectomy generates revenue in a way unmatched by any other urologic procedure. That's because no urologic procedure tends to draw men ages 35-55 to private practices as consistently and significantly as vasectomy.

Often performed between 10-15 minutes, vasectomy is typically reimbursed anywhere between $350 to $900. If a physician dedicates just one half-day each week to vasectomy he can significantly boost his overall revenue.

Is NSV Just a Marketing Gimmick?

No. The term "No-Scalpel" Vasectomy is something of a misnomer and may lead some to think of NSV as a marketing gimmick.

The name was given to help reduce the anxiety that men commonly associate with vasectomy. But the term "no-scalpel" also underscores the fact that "cutting" is not involved and therefore there is less bleeding, less pain, and no stitches.

However, because these benefits are so important to men considering vasectomy, both the term "NSV" and the actual less invasive procedure tends draw men to practices that perform No-Scalpel Vasectomy.
