Highly Trained, Global Leaders in Robotic Microsurgery
Robotic vasectomy reversal requires specialized expertise. The urologists at Orlando Health Medical Group Urology PUR Clinic are highly trained microsurgeons. As global leaders in the field, we have performed over 1,000 robotic microsurgical procedures — more than any other center in the world. You can feel comfortable and assured our experts are ready to help you take the next step in expanding your family.
How Robotic Vasectomy Reversal Works
Our highly trained surgeons use the latest da Vinci robotic platform to perform your microsurgical vasectomy reversal. With the da Vinci robotic platform, our expert surgeons can see better and have more accurate and precise movements. The robot eliminates the surgeon’s tremors and fatigue to ensure the most effective procedure. And, with a “third arm” from the robot, the surgeon has even more control over the complete surgical process.
With sutures thinner than a human hair (10-0 and 9-0 grade nylon), we reconnect the vas deferens using a three-layer process to provide added binding strength. You’ll be under mild anesthesia during the procedure to maximize your comfort and safety.
Robotic Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates
The success of your microsurgical vasectomy reversal can depend on several factors. Patients with the highest success rate have their reversal within three years of their vasectomy. However, we have also seen success in men who had vasectomies 38 years ago. Your age and the amount of scarring within the vas deferens tubes can impact your procedure’s success. We work to provide you with the most favorable surgical outcome — the latest published results show a high 90+% success rate for our bilateral vasovasostomy cases.
Reduce Scarring and Future Complications with Our Bio-wrap Vasectomy Reversal Option
A bio-wrap vasectomy reversal is an option that may be added to your procedure if you are:
- Interested in reducing the amount of scarring at the vasectomy reversal site.
- Concerned about tissue buildup (granuloma formation)
- Concerned about a possible auto-immune reaction.
Talk to your doctor to see if a bio-wrap vasectomy reversal is right for you.
Cryo-Preservation of Sperm at the Time of Vasectomy Reversal
Some patients may want to preserve sperm for future IVF treatments (assisted reproductive technique) in case your reversal is not successful. We often recommend this if you are having a redo vasectomy or if your vasectomy was several years ago. We offer the option to cryo-preserve your sperm at the time of the reversal. Please speak with your physician prior to your scheduled procedure to determine if this is right for you.
