John McHugh is a urologist in Georgia who was treated for prostate cancer in 2007. His book, "The decision: Your prostate biopsy shows cancer. Now what?" was written for the newly diagnosed prostate cancer patient as an aid to making the decision of which treatment to pursue. Using medical insight, personal stories and humor, Dr. McHugh offers a novel and eclectic approach to the "Decision." Dr. McHugh enjoys being "the second opinion" for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer by other physicians. Patients value his experience in having treated this disease and having been treated for it as an adjunct to their making the decision "right" for them. Dr. McHugh's urological niche is microscopic vasectomy reversal surgery. He performs this procedure with a Zeiss operating microscope, microscopic instruments and suture in his accredited urological surgery center. Anesthesia is provided by board certified anesthesiologists. It has become the most enjoyable and gratifying procedure he performs.

Popular question:

Q: My vasectomy took fifteen minutes…is the reversal similar?

A: A reversal takes about 2 and half hours. Because the small openings on each side are open for this period of time, there is the likelihood of more swelling. The reversal is a  minor procedure with small risk of serious complications, but due to the time it takes to perform bruising and swelling is common. Having said that, there are patients who say that there was more swelling with their vasectomy than with the reversal.

Thank you for the review!

Dr. McHugh and his staff did a wonderful job of making the vasectomy my husband had painless and stress free. Our experience could not have been more positive. My husband was told up front what to expect and Dr McHugh explained everything as he went. The fact that he has so many years of experience did also help to make us both more comfortable. 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!!
