Vasectomy Reversals - Microsurgical Reconstruction

Vasectomy reversals are possible, and they can have an over 95% success rate! Dr. Rahman offers free consultations for men seeking insight as to if vasectomy reversal surgery is right for them. Over 500,000 vasectomies are performed each year in the United States. About 3 per 1,000 of these men request a reversal.

Factors that may determine the success of the procedure include:
  • The length of time since the vasectomy was performed
  • Whether or not antibodies to sperm have developed
  • Age of the woman partner
  • The method used for vasectomy and the length and location of the segments that were removed or blocked
Vasectomy Reversal - Fresno, CA
Vasectomy reversal surgery success also depends on your ultimate goals. If your goal is pregnancy, the less amount of time between the vasectomy and the reversal, the better. Less than 3 years sees the best chances, while more than 15 years after, your chances become quite slim. However, sperm cryopreservation, or sperm banking, can be done during the reversal surgery just in case.
