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

Dr. McHugh is a board certified urologist who has practiced in Gainesville, Georgia for over 25 years. He is one of the Southeast’s most experienced urologist performing no scalpel vasectomy and  microscopic vasectomy reversal. He utilizes a Zeiss operating microscope with microscopic instruments and suture, in his practice owned and accredited urological surgery center with anesthesia provided by board certified anesthesiologists. Over 500 microscopic reversals have been performed in our surgery center since 2008.

Dedicated Vasectomy Reversal Surgery Center

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

Practice owned surgery center decreases vasectomy reversal 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 the cost. Not having to go to a hospital makes the procedure more efficient for the patient and makes it is much 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 usually pays an all inclusive fee to the surgeon. This fee covers all of the components of having a surgical 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 and 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 vasectomy reversal fee to be much less than if a hospital were used. Our anesthesiologists are board certified as well as Dr. McHugh.

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 asking about cost, the most common question which the couple seeking information about a vasectomy reversal  is, “What is the success rate?” This question is tricky and the answer is, ” Well it depends.” When one inquires about success there are several factors to take into account and the particulars of each will vary from patient to patient. There are three primary factors that are important in the success of a vas reversal. In addition to these factors one must also remember that there are variables that pertain to the female. In other words, if everything has been done right and the male’s factors are maximized, there is still the possibility that there may be an issue of the female that will thwart pregnancy.

Important Success Factors

The three factors that must be understood by the couple having a vas reversal are: The number of years since the vasectomy was performed, patency (are there sperm  in the ejaculate after the reversal), and achieving pregnancy. In general the closer you are to having had a vasectomy the better your chances of patency and pregnancy.
Vasectomy Reversal Success Rate:

Less than 3 years  Patency 97% Pregnancy 76%

3-8 years             Patency 88% Pregnancy 53%

9-14 years           Patency 79% Pregancy 44%

Greater than 15 years Patency 71% Pregancy 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 vas 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 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 patent and pregnant.

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).

c5f40be2a855c800ffff8103ffffd524

The second layer of this method of performing the vasovasostomy 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 and the entire time 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.

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

I went in to see Dr McHugh for a vasectomy, of course a little nervous about the procedure and aftercare. But the level of professionalism with everyone at this office is something many other healthcare places should learn from. He explained everything in detail and even during the procedure and really made sure I was comfortable which is something that made it a much more easier experience for me. Was in and out in about 30min. It's been three days now and I've not had to take any pain medicines and was no where close to needing any, they definitely know what they are doing if your looking to have this done.

We went into this Vasectomy procedure not knowing a whole lot of how it worked just knowing we wanted it done. Dr McHugh met with us and walked us step by step through the process and gave us options that really helped meet our needs and budget. We came in for the new option of Nitrous Gas instead of going fully under anesthesia and it went off without a hitch, if you are not anxious about the procedure or just don’t really want to be put under this is an amazing option for you, saves time and money and it allows you to be semi conscious for the procedure so they can check in on you during it. Only took about 15 minutes and post op they give you very explicit instructions and as long as you follow them you will be good to go! No pain and no issues. I would highly recommend the expertise of Dr McHugh and his team there at the Urological/Vasectomy office.

Really can’t speak highly enough about Dr. McHugh’s office. The procedure was very fast and Dr. McHugh explained everything he was doing which brought ease to the entire procedure. I typically have to tell doctors that I need more lidocaine and they brush me off until they can see the original shots did not work. Dr. McHugh took what I said seriously and even stopped to add more through the procedure. Was very nice to be listened to and taken seriously. Recovery has been easy with relatively no pain at all. Something that so many folks dread should take comfort in knowing you’re in good hands by having your procedure preformed in this office.

I recently had a minor complication with a Vasectomy in Ohio and very little feedback from my doctor. I started googling my problem and found Dr. McHugh had graciously given feedback to folks who had the same problem I had across the county. I was so uncomfortable that I decided to give his office a call. His nurse Megan was extremely kind and offered me great advice. Dr. Mchugh even called personally and helped answer all my questions and looked at my test results. The Dr. gained no benefit from helping me at all and quite frankly could have ignored me. I'm so grateful I got to speak with him and would put my full confidence in him performing my vasectomy.

Dr. McHugh and staff were Above and Beyond my expectations, Vasectomy was quick and painless and recovery with the provided “Instructions for after your Vasectomy” worked out well, only experienced some minor soreness that went away after the 2nd day. Thank you.
