Dr. Shane Russell is proud to provide his vasectomy reversal success rates, as defined by the patency rate. But first it is important to understand how this is defined. A successful pregnancy is the ultimate success measure for the couple, but several factors have to be removed from the equation since natural pregnancy rates are affected by many considerations outside the control of the surgeon. Such factors determining success and failure rates include:

  • Potential female fertility issues which might be present,
  • Chance associations related to natural conception and
  • The potential presence of anti-sperm antibodies (which can form at the time of the initial vasectomy).

Success for a vasectomy reversal procedure is therefore defined by the patency rate. Patency involves re-establishing the flow of sperm. However there are more factors to consider that will influence the vasectomy reversal success rate that are not in the control of the surgeon. These include:

  • The surgical technique that the vasectomy reversal doctor has to use based upon the sperm flow at the time of surgery (the type of connection needed) .
  • The genetics of the individual man, as some men are prone to form greater or less scar tissue in this area as they heal.
  • The time needed for sperm counts and sperm quality to return to normal following the reversal varies. Typically sperm enter the ejaculate within 3-6 months; however the length of time can be longer or shorter, depending upon individual circumstances.

*Success rate is defined as the chance of sperm returning in good numbers

Predicting Natural Pregnancy

Rates of natural pregnancy are not as easy to predict as the expected success rate for patency after a vasectomy reversal. Factors such as potential female fertility issues which might be present and the basic elements of chance associated with the process of natural conception are difficult to add up. In general, when sperm have returned in good numbers conception occurs 75% of the time. The vasectomy reversal success rate increases when female assisted reproductive techniques are part of the equation.
