Vasectomy Reversal: The basics
Vasectomy. The tube that runs from the testes to the urethra in the penis is called the Vas Deferens. It is a muscular tube that sperm travel along after being produced in the testes. During ejaculation the tubes forces sperm into the urethra tube in the penis and then sperm is deposited in the female vagina to start the process of potentially fertilising a female egg. A vasectomy is the operation to tie off the tube therefore blocking it and creating a contraceptive method, so no sperm is deposited during sex. There are multiple methods but most just snip the Vas then tie it off.
Microsurgery. The procedure to reverse a vasectomy is done using a high- powered surgical microscope and microsurgical fine instruments needed to work with the fine sutures used.
