Only a few urologists in Georgia perform microscopic vasectomy reversals. Why is that?

It is very difficult to sew microscopic suture the size of a strand of hair to connect an opening the size of the “O” in God on a penny looking through a magnifying operating microscope. 12-15 sutures are placed on each side to complete the procedure.

It takes experience, patience, and having a “knack for it” to perform this procedure it in a time efficient and successful fashion.

The video shows the completion of one of 12-15 sutures necessary to complete one side.

Note the fluidity of completing the knot and the lack of  wasted motion. This takes years of experience.

Popular vasectomy reversal question: Does easy pregnancy before vasectomy mean quick pregnancy after reversal?

It doesn’t hurt…but probably this is not a top tier factor in success. More important is the experience of your surgeon and the period of time that has passed since the vasectomy. The sooner a reversal is done after a vasectomy the better. Also, if one feels a knot in the area of the vasectomy site on each side, this is positive predictor of increased success. This is called a sperm granuloma and acts as a pop-off valve of sorts and protects the sperm making ability of the testicle.

As with everything in life…a little luck is always helpful!
