The procedure is simple, seamless, and virtually pain free, taking only 15 minutes. The anaesthetic is applied to the vasa using a fine needle with no injections into the testes or penis. A single, small opening only 2-4mm in size is then made in the centre of the scrotum below the penis without a scalpel. It will close rapidly and heal without needing stitches. It is a unique feature of Dr Snip ‘no scalpel’ microKeyhole™ surgery.
The vasa are located and are gently drawn through the same opening one at a time. The vas is divided. The centre of the top end of each vas having been sealed (mucosal cautery) and covered with tissue (fascial interposition) using either a tiny clip or a dissolving thread to further prevent them from re-joining. The bottom end of each vas is left open (the open-ended technique) to minimise post-operative pain.
Using this method, there is much less chance of complications and the patient feels more comfortable in stark contrast to the traditional method which is often performed under general anaesthetic, involving cutting through the skin and underlying tissue and blood vessels on each side and requiring sutures.
