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, 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. You can read the results of a comparison of vasectomy methods study here.
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.
This means you will not need to take time to come back for another appointment after your procedure.
This is valuable especially if it means you don’t have to take time off work.
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 optional fee enables us to provide this service, as Sask Health only pays for in-office visits. We have chosen to put patient interests first.
