Vasectomy Booking Options
Saskatchewan Health covers the full cost of a no-scalpel vasectomy at Gentle Procedures. You will pay nothing for your procedure if you choose no-scalpel vasectomy with standard anesthesia.
We also offer the option for a Comfort Package for improved comfort and convenience for $195. You can choose either option, and you can see detail on the Comfort Package below.
This is a package of optional, uninsured services that many clients choose, and we are pleased to offer the no fee procedure as well.
The Vasectomy Comfort Package
The vasectomy comfort package responds to your needs in three ways:
- We use No-Needle Anaesthesia for maximum comfort.
- All post-vasectomy supplies will be provided to you at no additional cost.
- Your post-surgery follow-ups will be done by phone, minimizing your travel.
No Needle Anesthesia with No Scalpel Vasectomy
Nobody wants a needle in the scrotum – so we use No Needle Anesthesia to numb your skin and vas deferens prior to your vasectomy surgery. We use an air pressure spray applicator to spray a fine stream of anesthetic (0.1 cc/injection) through the skin instead of a needle, freezing both the skin and vas deferens at the same time.
With this method, no object physically enters the scrotum. With this No-Needle method there is less risk of puncturing a blood vessel and patient stress is reduced which helps relax the scrotum so there is less uncomfortable tugging and pulling during the procedure.
Patients report less pain during freezing, and it also reduces the procedure length since less time is spent controlling bleeding or managing local hematoma from the needle. No Needle anesthesia is an important benefit of the Comfort Package.
No Cost for Post-Vasectomy Supplies Provided
Everything that you will need for care after surgery will be packaged together and given to you the day of your surgery. This saves you the trouble of making a trip (or several) to the pharmacy to make purchases of ointment, gauze, Tylenol, etc.
You will be able to go directly home after your vasectomy and relax – icing your scrotum as instructed.
Telephone Follow-Up Post Vasectomy
Telephone follow-up, including your semen test results, is part of your Comfort Package.
The phone follow-up is not covered by medicare but offers you the important benefit of saving the time it would take to come back to the clinic for an additional appointment.
You can go ahead and register online now and we will call you to schedule your single visit no-needle no-scalpel vasectomy procedure.
All your follow up visits will be eliminated. Rather than coming back to our clinic after your surgery for follow-up and semen test results, we will schedule phone meetings for these and save you the unnecessary travel.
The Comfort Package fee enables us to provide this service, as Sask Health only pays for in-office visits. We have chosen to put patient interests first.
Conventional vasectomy: Two moderate incisions stitched closed.
No-scalpel procedure: No stitches are needed to close the tiny opening

No-Scalpel Vasectomy Trends
In recent years, vasectomy has been popular amongst Saskatchewan and Canadian men seeking permanent contraception. Over to 50,000 Canadian men have a vasectomy every year, and the introduction of the no-scalpel technique is a factor in these numbers.
This trend suggests that more and more people are recognizing the overall convenience, safety and reliability of this procedure. We are proud to be a leader in promoting access to no-scalpel vasectomy in SK, and coupled with no-needle anaesthesia the entire process can be virtually pain-free.
Many families choose vasectomy as their family planning method because it is truly a “set it and forget it” method – and importantly – carries a significantly lower risk than tubal ligation for women. The cost is also quite favourable compared to other contraceptive methods – given that it is a one-time expenditure, paid in part or in full by Saskatchewan Health.
No-Scalpel Vasectomy in Saskatchewan - The History
No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) was developed in China in 1974 by Dr. Li Shunqiang. By 1985, an international team made up of members from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Access to Voluntary and Safe Contraception (AVSC), formerly the Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception, were visiting China to study alternative vasectomy procedures, including NSV.
Later after careful observation and review of the NSV procedure, it was decided to introduce the technique to Canada, where standard vasectomy was already very well established as a contraceptive method.
Since then, many hundreds of thousands of no-scalpel vasectomies have been performed in Canada, and the numbers around the world are growing.
Our Saskatchewan vasectomy clinics use this advanced method and Gentle Procedures Clinics have been performing scalpel-free vasectomies with great success for many years.

No-Scalpel Benefits vs. Conventional Vasectomy
No scalpel vasectomy is a simple and elegant procedure that many studies show has significant advantages over conventional vasectomy. NSV is comparatively faster, has a swifter recovery time, safer (one-eighth the rate of bleeding and infection) and can be virtually pain-free – especially when coupled with no-needle anaesthesia – as done at our Sasktachewan vasectomy clinics.
With a conventional vasectomy procedure, a doctor would make two incisions, one on each side of the scrotum, perform the procedure, and then stitch up the incisions. The stitches would then have to be removed about a week later.
With our approach there is no knife, no cutting incision, and no stitches. Men who have undergone NSV express amazement at the minimal physical discomfort they experienced both during the procedure and during recovery.
Men who were previously not considering vasectomy because they feared the scalpel can now feel comfortable, relaxed and confident with this simple procedure.
