Traditional Vasectomy Procedure
During a traditional vasectomy, a needle is injected into the scrotum to freeze the area before the procedure. Just the injection alone is painful and anxiety-provoking. But because the needle is blind as it enters the body, there’s an added risk of nicking a blood vessel in the testicle, causing bleeding and bruising.
A recent study in India showed a clear differential in patient outcomes when comparing the traditional to the no-needle method.
- Less anaesthetic required
- Anaethesic was faster acting
- Far less pain
- Faster surgery
- No complications without needle
The study included 1000 men about to undergo a vasectomy. They were split into two groups – one receiving a traditional vasectomy, the other with a no-needle methodology. The group for the no-needle procedure show absolutely no complications, unlike the traditional method. Just as importantly, patient satisfaction was found to be much higher, particularly as relates to pain levels.
