Dr. Steven Smith

Please be advised, for medical legal reasons, this website is intended for Canadian audiences only.

Dr. Smith is a board certified Urologist (FRCS(C) 1986), having completed his medical school and residency training at the University of Toronto. He now has a very busy practice in Ajax, Ontario. Although Dr. Smith does a wide variety of urologic surgery, he has always had a particular interest in vasectomy and vasectomy reversal. The Ajax community has a large number of young families and consequently a high demand for vasectomy and Dr. Smith has developed a reputation for excellence in this procedure. As one of the first Canadian physicians to perform the “NO SCALPEL” vasectomy, since 1991, he has done approximately 6000 vasectomies using this technique.

During residency training, Dr. Smith was fortunate to gain a lot of experience in the technique of microsurgical vasectomy reversal. He has been doing vasectomy reversals for over 17 years using the two layer anastamotic technique with a Zeiss operating microscope. Dr. Smith takes great pride in the quality of his work and great satisfaction in obtaining excellent results.

Dr. Smith would be pleased to see you in consultation for either vasectomy or vasectomy reversal.



Vasectomy

For residents of Ontario with valid OHIP coverage, the consultation and the actual vasectomy procedure are insured, however:

You must get a referral request faxed to our office by your family doctor.

There is a nominal $40 administrative fee to cover non OHIP costs.



Vasectomy Reversal

OHIP does not cover the consultation fee or the procedure. You do not need a 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.


If you are interested in scheduling a consultation, please call the office at 905 426-9426. Office hours are generally 9-12, 1-4:30 Monday to Thursday and 9-12 on Friday. The fax number for family doctor referrals is 905 426-9322.

Office address: 95 Bayly St. West, Suite 300, Ajax, Ontario

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 this service.

Vasectomy reversal:

Vasectomy reversal is always performed in the hospital under a general anaesthetic.

Please remember that your initial office appointment is for a consultation only.
