referral from your family doctor. An extra long appointment is scheduled to do an examination,
discuss the procedure and answer any questions.
$100.00 fee is charged for the initial vasectomy reversal consultation, but
this fee is waived if you schedule and pay for the vasectomy reversal procedure within one year
of the consultation date.
If you have OHIP coverage, the current (as of March 2004) all inclusive fee
for vasectomy reversal is $3500.00. This includes hospital charges for use of the operating room,
anesthesia and surgical fees.

NOTE TO PROSPECTIVE PATIENTS:
The prospect of undergoing a surgical procedure anywhere near the testicles is anxiety provoking
for many men. Every effort will be made to make you as comfortable as possible during the
initial consultation, and, more importantly, while your vasectomy is being performed. The “no
scalpel” vasectomy is non invasive and virtually painless. For a large majority of men, local
anaesthetic properly administered, is all that is needed. However, there are some men who
cannot stand the thought of being awake during the procedure. For those patients, sedation is
used to put them gently to sleep for the ten minutes it takes to do their vasectomy. If you
choose this option, your vasectomy is scheduled at the hospital. There is no extra charge for
Vasectomy reversal is always performed in the hospital under a general anaesthetic.
Please remember that your initial office appointment is for a consultation only.
