Vasectomy Reversal: Helping couples with the  precious addition to their family.

Dr. McHugh is a board certified urologist who specializes in microscopic vasectomy reversal. He is one of the Southeast’s most experienced no scalpel vasectomy and  microscopic vasectomy reversal urologists. He utilizes a Zeiss operating microscope with microscopic instruments and sutures. Vasectomy reversals are performed in his practice owned and accredited urological surgery center with anesthesia provided by board certified anesthesiologists. Over 500 microscopic vasectomy reversals have been performed in our surgery center since 2008.

Dedicated Accredited Surgery Center

This state licensed facility is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. and is equipped to perform microscopic vasectomy reversals with general anesthesia.

Practice owned surgery center decreases cost.

Since one of the largest impediments to the couple desiring a vasectomy reversal is cost,  having our own facility both streamlines the process and minimizes our all-inclusive fee. Not having to go to a hospital makes the procedure more efficient for the patient and makes the procedure more cost effective and affordable.

The vasectomy reversal patient can take comfort in knowing that the urologist and the anesthesiologist are board certified physicians and that the procedure is performed with microscopic instrumentation in an accredited facility.

Vasectomy Reversal Cost

Because a vasectomy reversal is usually not covered by insurance, the patient customarily pays an all inclusive fee to the surgeon. This fee covers all of the components of having the reversal procedure such as:

  • The fee of the surgeon to perform the reversal.
  • The facility fee which includes the cost of the nurses and staffing, the facility (operating room), suture materials,  the operating microscope, the anesthesiologist and the anesthesia supplies necessary to put a patient to sleep.
  • The cost of overnight accommodations (if necessary).

At Northeast Georgia Urological Associates our facility is accredited and owned by our practice which in turn allows our all inclusive fee to be much less expensive than if a hospital were used. Dr. McHugh and our anesthesiologists are board certified.

The all inclusive cost for a  microscopic vasectomy reversal at the Northeast Georgia Ambulatory Surgery Center is $7,200.00 and includes board certified anesthesia. Considering the facility where the procedure is performed, the safety and confidence in knowing there will be board certified physicians managing your care and the experience of the surgeon-we believe our all inclusive fee represents the most cost effective vasectomy reversal in Georgia.

Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates

After inquiring about cost, the most common question the couple seeking information about a vas reversal  is, “What is the success rate?” 

The three factors that have the most important impact on the success of a vasectomy reversal are: The number of years since the vasectomy was performed, the skill and experience of the surgeon, and the findings at the time of surgery (the quality of the fluid).  These factors will be discussed in detail at the time of the free phone consultation.

Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates:

Less than 3 years  Patency 97% Pregnancy 76%

3-8 years             Patency 88% Pregnancy 53%

9-14 years           Patency 79% Pregnancy 44%

Greater than 15 years Patency 71% Pregnancy 30%

Belker AM, et al. Results of 1,469 microsurgical vasectomy reversals by the Vasovasostomy Study Group. Journal of Urology 1991; 145(3):505-11.

So you see the answer to the question,  “What is the success rate?” is a complicated one. If the male after a vasectomy reversal has sperm in his ejaculate, that does not necessarily mean that the couple will achieve pregnancy. The time it takes for sperm to regain its former motility and number  varies as well. Then of course as a backdrop to all of these issues are the normal impediments to pregnancy that all couples face. This is why in the chart above, you see the disparity between the presence of sperm in the ejaculate (patency) and having enough sperm to achieve pregnancy.

Vasectomy Reversal Technique

c5f40be2a855c800ffff8104ffffd524

Using an operating microscope, suture the size of hair (9-0 Nylon) is used to align the lumen of the vas tubes. Dr. McHugh uses the Modified Two-Layer technique. The first layer joins both the outside of the vas and the lumen (the channel that carries the sperm).

The second layer joins the outside of each of the vas tubes. This method provides for both the proper alignment of the lumen as well as support of the repair ensuring a tension free anastomosis. Studies have shown that this technique has similar success  rates as other methods which take longer to perform and can incur a greater expense. A total of 12-14 sutures are placed on each side. The procedure generally lasts two hours.  The entire time spent at our facility is usually around 3 hours.

My husband asked questions ahead of time and from friends that previously had the procedure. He felt confident going in and completely comfortable during the procedure. Highly recommend them.

Twice as Nice!

With time, prayers and of course a great surgeon we now have a healthy baby boy! Thank you!

We are happy to report that we are pregnant! Thank you to all of you who participated in our care, especially Dr. McHugh. We are so pleased and excited.

My wife and I are happy to announce that we are now expecting in March of 2020. This wouldn’t be possible without Dr. McHugh and his amazing staff! Thank y’all!

Thank you!

I had my vasectomy reversal in February 2018 and my wife got pregnant in May 2018, only 3 months later! The service and attention received before, during and after the procedure was excellent. The team was very warm and super easy to work with.

Fantastic bedside manner, office and surgical staff were top notch. This coming from a nurse of 12 years. I was never nervous or uncomfortable. (Microscopic Vasectomy Reversal)

Dr. McHugh is very thorough and answered any questions we had prior to surgery. His team was very kind and thorough post surgery as well, following up via phone and email to be sure my husband had the best recovery he could. Our chances for conceiving were less than 50% and we just had our daughter a month before the one year mark from surgery. Leanna T.     September  2022

 

Wonderful Addition!

Dr. McHugh and the staff are the absolute best! I was nervous about the procedure and elected for anesthesia. Everything, from the time I arrived, was prepped, and discharged was seamless and painless! And, you can tell the staff really do care and go out of their way to make this a very pleasant experience. If you are hesitant about moving forward, don’t wait and give the office a call. You won’t regret it.

Had the surgery done on the 2nd and everything is good so far. I went in to see Dr McHugh for a vasectomy, of course a little nervous about the procedure. He explained everything in detail and even during the procedure, he made sure I was comfortable which made the experience great for me. Was in and out probably only took 30min the most. It's been 6 days now and I've not had to take any pain medicines well even right after the procedure didn’t take any, just icing the area what did it. They definitely know what they are doing if you’re looking to have this done.

I had a great experience with Dr John McHugh during my vasectomy procedure. He was very informative on the whole process and made me feel very relaxed and at ease during the procedure. He made sure with any slight discomfort he’d stop and add more pain medication. Overall I experienced almost no pain and the surgery was over before I knew it. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to have a vasectomy.

I recently had a procedure performed at the office of Dr. John McHugh and I would like to take this time to say that the care I received from start to finish was delivered with exceptional care. Becky got me ready for surgery, starting my IV while talking with me like we were neighbors. Jen Hayes took the time to answer my questions regarding receiving anesthesia and me having severe sleep apnea. She assured me she had all the tools at her disposal to keep me breathing steadily throughout the operation. Jessica was very patient and friendly while helping me to navigate through my post operative haze into full wakeful consciousness. Managing nurse, Daphne, oversees a staff that represent the highest standards of their profession. I knew I was in the best hands with Dr. McHugh, but it was very reassuring to find that he comes with the best team as well! Thank you all! Mike Windhorst

I cannot say enough about how wonderful this entire staff is. And Dr. John was absolutely awesome. He put on some great music of my choice and the procedure was over before I even knew it. I stayed awake and just opted for a local anesthetic, and it was virtually painless. I highly recommend this doctor and the staff for a vasectomy.
