Looking for a safe, simple and affordable form of men contraception? While currently men have limited options for contraception, Northbridge Medical Centre is now offering individualised patient centred Vasectomy as a form of permanent contraception option.
Located in a central location in Northbridge, the clinic is dedicated to provide the surgery on site avoiding the need for expensive hospital fees.
What is No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV)
No-Scalpel Vasectomy is now the preferred method of surgery. The procedure involves making a single blunt incision in the scrotum skin, then exposing the vas deferens to cut and seal both vas deferens. Vas deferens is the tube connected between the testicle and penis. The tube is responsible for carrying the sperm.
NSV differs from the traditional open vasectomy in the following way:
The procedure starts by putting local anaesthetic in the area of skin of the scrotum and also the vas deferens.
A small keyhole incision for about 5mm is made into the scrotum using the no-scalpel method.
Through the keyhole wound, the left / right vas deferens is located and then divided and sealed using a hyfrecator.
The remaining part of the vas deferens will be sealed via fascial interposition with surrounding tissues.
The same technique is then performed on the right/left vas deferens using the same keyhole wound
A small dressing is then applied to the skin with no need for suture.
