No Scalpel Vasectomy Braselton, Ga-John McHugh M.D.

Dr. John McHugh

No Scalpel Vasectomy:

Thank you for your interest in our practice regarding a no scalpel vasectomy.  Dr. McHugh performs no scalpel vasectomies and microscopic vasectomy reversals and has been in practice over thirty years. As a result, he is Georgia’s most experienced board certified urologist performing both vasectomies and microscopic vasectomy reversals.

Scheduling:

Although a no scalpel vasectomy can be performed most any day of the week, our most common days are Thursday (anesthesia  or nitrous) and Friday (oral sedation and local anesthesia.) Therefore, scheduling a vasectomy convenient to your schedule is usually not a problem as Thursday and Friday are reserved all most exclusively for performing vasectomies.  Dr. McHugh performs  between 20-30 vasectomy a month and has done thousands during his career.

We accept most insurances and your cost is based on the allowable for your particular plan. We will assist in you estimating that amount before the procedure. Options re: anesthesia and nitrous are available at acceptable rates and can be discussed during the consultation as well.

Self-Pay-Not using insurance:

Our no scalpel vasectomy all-inclusive price for self pay patients is $950.00. (Consultation and the procedure.) For self pay  patients preferring conscious sedation in our on site accredited surgery center, the all inclusive fee is $1300.00. This is facilitated by a certified anesthesiologist and is included in the fee.

For patients who prefer conscious sedation, this is available on Thursdays. We have a certified anesthesiologist, an accredited surgery center and can assure you a safe, pain free and anxiety free experience.

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.

Atlanta, Ga. Vasectomy Reversal Cost

reversal vasectomy accredited center

Atlanta Vasectomy Reversal Cost…The sweet spot: Physician owned and accredited facility, best all inclusive price and experience.

Microscopic vasectomy reversals are not covered by insurance, as a result prices can vary dramatically. Certainly the experience and skill of the surgeon is important and has a value, however the price is often influenced significantly by where the procedure is performed and the type of anesthesia utilized. Let me explain.

The cost of vasectomy reversal depends in large part on the location where the procedure is done and on the type of anesthesia given.

Lowest cost vasectomy reversal scenario: Non accredited facility/Local anesthesia.

In this scenario of a vasectomy reversal, the surgeon, regardless of the degree of experience, uses an office setting outfitted for surgical procedures. Magnifying glasses called Loupes or an operating microscope are utilized. The anesthesia is oral medications, and local anesthesia. The patient is awake and aware. The facility is not accredited for general anesthesia. Not having to pay the fees associated with having an accredited facility equipped for general anesthesia or a certified anesthesiologist allow the procedure to be done at the lowest cost.

Middle cost vasectomy reversal scenario: Non accredited facility/Conscious sedation:

Here again the procedure is performed as above in an upgraded office setting and conscious sedation is given for pain control. As a result this aids in keeping the patient still. A pre-procedure oral medication is given, local anesthesia is used (Lidocaine to the scrotal and vas deferns) and I.V. medicine complements the anesthesia. The patient is not having general anesthesia and can respond to questions, as a result the facility does not have to have general anesthesia accreditation. (If the I.V. sedation is given by a certified anesthesiologist (M.D. or C.N.R.A.) this improves the safety of the 2-3 hour procedure but then adds to the cost. I.V. medicines requires monitoring, ideally administered by an anesthesiologist. The supplies and medications used adds to the cost.

Middle cost vasectomy reversal scenario: Accredited and Practiced owned surgery center/ Conscious sedation or General anesthesia.

This is the scenario at Northeast Georgia Urological Associates. The best of all scenarios. Why? The facility is state licensed and accredited for conscious sedation or general anesthesia. The facility is practice owned and on site. (You don’t have to go to a hospital or a ambulatory surgery center at another site and with equipment and staff that the surgeon can’t control.) The safety and options are dramatically better than the “outfitted office” setting, and the cost is dramatically less than a hospital. This scenario is the best of both worlds in providing a hospital level oversight while keeping the all inclusive acceptable.

Highest cost vasectomy reversal scenario: An operating room in a hospital is used:

If the vasectomy reversal doctor is affiliated with a hospital and performs the procedure there, the expenses go up dramatically. The fees are often times are more about paying the hospital than for the expertise of the physician performing the reversal. If the doctor doesn’t do reversals often and you are paying more for the facility in which it is performed, as a result you lose two ways. You are paying for a more expensive location and for the less experienced reversal physician.

The Sweet Spot?

  • Board Certified Urologist
  • Reversal Experience (Hundreds performed)
  • On site, Accredited/State licensed and Physician owned facility.
  • Experienced staff- R.N.s and Certified anesthesia.
  • Best all-inclusive price in Georgia.
  • The “Reversal Sweet Spot”- Experience, Accredited Facility, General Anesthesia and The best “apples to apples” all-inclusive price.

Middle cost scenario/Accredited facility owned by the reversal urologist: This is our scenario. Our facility is accredited by the State and AAAASF. As a result, we are licensed to provide general an)esthesia and are yearly evaluated by the accrediting agency to assure safety and all of the oversight you’d expect from a hospital. Our facility has a generator, special heating and air, a recovery room, certified anesthesia and registered nurses. This comes with an expense to our practice but allows accredited care. We are in the what I like to refer to as the “sweet spot.” The patient has the benefits of a hospital, but not the costs. As well, there is the convenience of having your procedure in a facility that is on site and I own. (The instrumentation, the nurses, the operating room is geared for reversals. This is opposed to having to be scheduled for your surgery at an off site surgery center with instrumentation and nurses, over which the physician has no control.)

The first step of a microscopic vasectomy reversal.

You’d think that finding the area of a vasectomy done years ago would always be easy. Well…not always. If the urologist used clips to facilitate the vasectomy, this makes finding the area very easy. However, if he removed only a small portion of the vas deferens and cauterized a small segment on either side of the the transection…this can be difficult to find.

In the picture above you can see on the left side the vas tube is slightly smaller than the right and that the right seems to have groves in it as well increased vascularity. The groove indicated that this is the portion closest to the testicle and is called the convoluted portion of the vas. In the middle of the two yellow things (penrose drains) is the scar from the vasectomy.

This scar will be removed, the fresh ends unaffected by the vasectomy scar isolated and approximated, and then the microscope will be brought into the surgical field to accomplish the microscopic repair with microscopic suture the size of hair.

Often times, whether this step is easy or difficult will predict the how easy or difficult the rest of the procedure will be.

It’s a “patient journey.”

But…it’s worth it!

Give us a call and let us help you achieve that new addition to your family!

What a microscopic vasectomy reversal “technical” success looks like!

Microscopic vasectomy reversal semen analysis specifics.

  • Year vasectomy performed-2012
  • Date of Vasectomy Reversal by Dr. McHugh – May 2021
  • Date of post reversal semen analysis- December 2021
  • Number of sperm seen-98 million
  • Number of sperm necessary for pregnancy-20 million
  • Motility-65%

Assessment-A good start!

The road to a successful pregnancy after a vasectomy reversal is convoluted journey. The above semen analysis is a wonderful start and confirms that the procedure was successful and that the patient’s testicles adapted to being obstructed for the 11 years. Now the normal impediments to pregnancy common to all couples becomes a factor. Considering all the factors, this is very favorable in culminating in a successful pregnancy. We wish the couple a happy outcome and appreciate the opportunity in participating by way of a microscopic vasectomy reversal.

Vasectomy bruising-A concern?

A common question after a vasectomy and as well microscopic vasectomy reversals is “What is the significance of skin bruising around the vasectomy site?” More importantly to the patient inquiring about this is, “Is anything wrong or does anything need to be done?”

Thank you back!

“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.”

Our procedure room is equipped with a Bose Bluetooth speaker synched with Amazon Prime Music, Pandora and Spotify. The music is an important part of making for as pleasant a vasectomy experience as possible.  That Dr. McHugh performs 25-30 vasectomies a month and 50-60 vasectomy reversals a year, helps also!
