Vasectomy & Vasectomy Reversal Information
Before your actual procedure you will be invited to attend a counselling session. This is to discuss the procedure with a Consultant and ensure you are fully informed before giving consent to treatment.We suggest that you arrange to be collected from the hospital, as you will be unable to drive yourself home.

If you wish to have your operation at Chichester please contact us, it will be performed by Mrs Suzie Venn and at Worthing by Mr Simon Woodhams or Mr Barnaby ChappellAbout your operation
As with any operation there is a risk of bruising and infection. Although pain is minimum after the operation generally not requiring more than paracetamol, all operations on the scrotum carry a risk of long-term discomfort. It is advisable to wear supportive underpants for 6 weeks to reduce the chance of this occurring. The operation may not be successful in achieving a positive sperm count.
Pain relief will be given to take home. It is essential that you rest for a few days to allow the tubes to heal and keep the skin wound clean. We would suggest that vigorous exercise is avoided for 2 weeks and cycling for approximately 6 weeks.
