Vasectomy & Reversal

Effective family planning options for men

Vasectomy & Reversal at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham

Our providers at Needham Urology Associates offer vasectomy and vasectomy reversal in a convenient location.

What is Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a procedure that involves removing the supply of sperm to your semen. It is the most effective form of birth control, with a higher than 99% success rate. It is a simple in-office procedure, and most insurance carriers cover the procedure. All our providers are highly skilled in vasectomy.

Vasectomy Reversal

Up to 15% of men who have a vasectomy change their minds and desire fertility again. Vasectomy reversal allows men to achieve natural pregnancy with their partners. Vasectomy reversal is not a covered benefit in Massachusetts but may be an alternative to in vitro fertilization (IVF).

What To Expect

Vasectomy reversal is performed as a microsurgical procedure requiring advanced expertise. You’ll return home the same day after surgery. You’ll then return to the office two months later for a semen analysis. This test determines the number of sperm restored in the semen.

Vasectomy Reversal Success Rate

In the experienced hands of BID Needham urologists, the success rates of vasectomy reversal are:

  • 90–95% for restoring sperm to the semen
  • 60–65% for achieving natural pregnancy within one year of surgery
