What is a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is an operation in which a specialist surgeon cuts or seals both the tubes that carry sperm from your testicles. As a result, sperm can’t reach your penis, and your partner will not become pregnant.

Dr. Kwong explains the procedure.
Our team has selected the no scalpel, keyhole method because there is less damage caused to surrounding tissue. As a result, it produces the least discomfort to the patient and reduces downtime.
The procedure is quick, more than 99% effective, and usually performed under local anaesthetic. Most patients need only a local anaesthetic for the procedure, but should a patient prefer sedation, this can be arranged. After the operation, and once you have cleared any existing semen from the tubes, you won’t have to worry about contraception again.
Following effective vasectomy surgery, when you have sex, the semen will contain no sperm. As a result, your partner’s egg won’t be fertilised, and pregnancy is prevented.
Gone are the days of large incisions and sutures. Our skilled surgeons have mastered the art of performing vasectomies without the need for a scalpel, resulting in a minimally invasive procedure that offers numerous benefits.
Here's how it works:
Minimally Invasive Technique:
With a no scalpel vasectomy, there is no need for a large incision. Instead, our experienced surgeons utilise a specialised instrument to make a tiny puncture in the skin, typically measuring only a few millimetres. This puncture is carefully made in a precise location, minimising tissue trauma and reducing the risk of bleeding or complications.
To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, a local anaesthetic is administered before the puncture is made. This ensures that you remain pain-free during the entirety of the vasectomy. Our compassionate medical team prioritises your well-being and will take all necessary measures to ensure a comfortable experience.
Efficient Vas Isolation:
Once the puncture is made, our skilled surgeons delicately manipulate the tissues to locate the vas deferens, the tube responsible for transporting sperm. Using specialised instruments, they gently lift the vas deferens through the puncture, avoiding the need for extensive incisions. This precision allows for the successful blocking of the vas with minimal disruption to surrounding structures.
Just as with the traditional technique, our surgeons will perform the same steps on both sides to ensure the desired outcome. By using the no scalpel approach, we maintain a consistent level of accuracy while minimising the overall invasiveness of the procedure.
Unlike traditional vasectomies, which often require sutures to close the incisions, the no scalpel technique typically does not necessitate stitches. The tiny puncture made during the procedure usually heals on its own, resulting in a barely noticeable scar or even no visible scarring at all. This aspect of the procedure offers a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
