“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.”
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.
