For Patients

You’re not alone. The SSMR offers a network of specialists, support services, and information to help you on your path to fertility.

Vasectomy Reversal

Vasectomy Reversal is surgery to reconnect the vas deferens, the tubular structure that transports sperm, after a vasectomy has been performed. This procedure helps to restore a couple’s ability to conceive naturally. Success rates are dependent upon the numbers of years since the vasectomy was performed. Pregnancy rates range from 30 – 76% depending on the vasectomy time interval and other key factors. There is no interval of time after which a vasectomy cannot successfully be reversed. This operation should be performed only by urologists who are qualified and specifically trained in microsurgery.
