Vasectomy reversals are
possible, and they can have an over 95% success rate! Dr. Rahman offers 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
