Reversal Cost Components
As a vasectomy reversal is not covered by insurance, the patient pays an all-inclusive fee to the surgeon. This fee covers all of the components of having the vasectomy reversal procedure to include:
- The surgeon’s fee to perform the reversal.
- The facility fee: the cost of the nurses and staffing, the facility (operating room), suture materials and the operating microscope.
- The anesthesiologist and the anesthesia supplies necessary to put a patient to sleep.
- The cost of overnight accommodations (if necessary).
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. If one considers 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. Our all inclusive fee represents the most cost effective vasectomy reversal in Georgia.
Call 770.535.0000 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule a free consultation. CareCredit is an option for couples preferring to pay with a medical credit card.
After asking about cost, the most common question the couple seeking information is, “What is the success rate?”
Three factors have the most important impact on the success of a vasectomy reversal: The number of years since the vasectomy was done, the skill/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.

Belker AM, et al. Results of 1,469 microsurgical vasectomy reversals by the Vasovasostomy Study Group. Journal of Urology 1991; 145(3):505-11.
Using an operating microscope, suture the size of hair (9-0 Nylon) is used to align the openings of the vas tubes. Dr. McHugh uses the Modified Two-Layer technique. The first layer joins both the outside of the vas and the inner opening (the channel that carries the sperm).
The second layer joins the outside of each of the vas tubes. As a result, this method provides for both the proper alignment of the lumen as well as support of the repair assuring a tension free connection . 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 lasts two hours. The entire time spent at our facility is usually around 3 hours.
“Dr. McHugh is incredible. Wonderfully personable and terrific bedside manner. Made me feel comfortable through the entire process while maintaining the highest form of professionalism. Highly recommend!” JS
The vast majority of our vasectomy reversal patients live outside of the Gainesville area. For this reason, a hotel stay is provided for patients requiring an overnight stay. This is included in our all-inclusive price.

A Reversal “Thumbs Up!”
Kalani was born December 31, 2022 at home under the care of a midwife and nurse at 8:11 pm. It was magical as the fireworks from the New Years celebrations exploded outside along the Florida coastline on a foggy sort of mystical night. Our boys are so in love with their baby sister!
Thank you so much for my husband’s successful reversal that you performed in October 2021. We found out we were expecting in the beginning of January and our son was born on September 7th.

Thankful for Dr. McHugh’s talent and the whole experience!
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
We try to make it “fun!”
“Dr. McHugh is loads of fun. Really nice guy. Excellent staff. Easy, short, and (mostly) painless procedure. Great practice here.” D.D.
Thank you so much for the positive feedback. Enjoyed comparing “Beatles Trivia!” I hope you do well. John McHugh
Thank you back!
Dr. McHugh and his wonderful staff are without a doubt the best in the industry.
“You and your staff were wonderful! I love the relaxed and laid back atmosphere that y’all provided especially the Music! Definitely helped my anxiety. Thank you.”
I appreciate everyone’s friendliness and kindness during the multiple office visits and surgery center procedure. Thank you for the good care you gave me!
Even after a miscarriage, with time, prayers and of course a great surgeon we now have a healthy 7lbs 2oz baby boy! Thank you.
Two for the price of one!
After extensive research, we found that the technique performed by Dr. McHugh was the best fit for us. It was the least invasive, and offered the fastest recovery. Dr. McHugh & his team delivered a high caliber of service & comfort for me, & I am extremely thankful for his practice.
Naomi was born just 12 months after having my surgery, & we couldn’t be happier with our newest addition!
Thank you Dr. McHugh and staff!
Thanks for dropping by!
What a delightful surprise!
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)
