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.

Vasectomy Reversal Surgeon

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.

Call 770.535.0000  or email: ngurology@gmail.com for more information or to schedule a free consultation.

CareCredit is an option for couples preferring to pay in installments with a medical credit card.

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?”

Important Success Factors

The three factors influence success : The number of years since the vasectomy was performed, the skill and experience of the surgeon and quality of the fluid at the time of the procedure. In general the closer you are to having had a vasectomy the better your chances of patency and pregnancy.

Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates

Less than 3 years  Patency 97% Pregnancy 76%

3-8 years             Patency 88% Pregnancy 53%

9-14 years           Patency 79% Pregnancy 44%

Greater than 15 years Patency 71% Pregnancy 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 patency and achieving pregnancy.

Vasectomy Reversal Technique

Vasectomy Reversal surgery

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).

Vasectomy reversal surgery

The second layer of this method of performing the vasectomy reversal 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.

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

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.

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!

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.

With time, prayers and of course a great surgeon we now have a healthy baby boy! Thank you!

Twice as Nice!

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.

As someone who battles anxiety (especially around medical stuff), the idea of a vasectomy was unpleasant to say the least. At my initial consult, Dr. McHugh addressed my anxiety immediately and reassured me with a very clear picture of what to expect as well as options to ease my nerves on the day of the procedure. I ended up electing to receive nitrous (laughing gas) in addition to some anxiety medication to take prior to arriving. From the moment I walked in the door on the day of, the staff were beyond friendly, caring, and efficient. They even let me select music to listen to during the procedure. It was evident that Dr. McHugh and his staff genuinely cared about me and making the procedure as comfortable as possible according to my specific needs. It could not have been a better experience!

Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a vasectomy or vasectomy reversal. Dr. McHugh and his staff are very professional and take the utmost care of their patients. After my surgery I was contacted twice by Dr. McHugh’s office just checking in on me. I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to have more children, and I look forward to sharing pictures of a successful vasectomy reversal.
