No-scalpel approach reduces the trauma, recovery time, and postoperative complications.

It is estimated that approximately 30,000 vasectomized men pursue a reversal every year in the United States. One Stop Medical Center (OSMC) of the Twin Cities has been providing affordable vasectomy reversal (vasovasostomy) service with a high success rate since its Vasectomy & Vasectomy Reversal Center was established in 2013. Recently, Dr. Steven Shu further improved his surgical techniques on vasectomy reversal by using the same principles and instruments as the no-scalpel vasectomy. OSMC now offers the No-Scalpel Reversal Procedure in its Edina surgical center.

A vasectomy reversal (vasovasostomy) is a microsurgical procedure that reconnects the vas deferens where it was interrupted by a vasectomy. A traditional approach to vasectomy reversal is to make two incisions in each side of the scrotum. Over the past decade, more surgeons have adopted the practice of placing a single incision in the middle of the scrotum. In order to further reduce the trauma, recovery time, operative time, and postoperative complications, the mini incision vasectomy reversal approach was proposed. Similar to a no-scalpel vasectomy, the initial mini-incision is created using sharp penetrating forceps that spread the tissue apart instead of cutting it with a sharp scalpel.

“We constantly improve our surgical techniques and the whole service system on vasectomy and vasectomy reversal procedures,” says Dr. Steven Shu, medical director of OSMC. “I was thinking, since a no-scalpel vasectomy has many proven advantages over a conventional vasectomy, why couldn’t we use the same principle and instruments to do a vasectomy reversal?”

One Stop Medical Center in the Twin Cities has developed an affordable, minimally invasive and convenient vasectomy reversal care system. This approach eliminates these three road blocks in the men’s mind: fear of pain, cost, and time.

One Stop Medical Center also has a powerful website with a plethora of information on vasectomy reversal. All patients are required to review important vasectomy reversal information before scheduling a procedure. Dr. Shu will finalize the consultation on the same day of the surgery, so patients do not need to make another trip for the consultation.
