  • Arrival:  Please refer to the above website. When you arrive at the clinic, just park your car. Unless there are cones placed in the disabled space, you can use it (very few vasectomy patients are disabled). If you have a disability, please let us know beforehand and we will block the space for you. If the car park is full your driver can stop in the Ambulance space, drop you off and wait in the car until one of the other 4 car parks becomes available.
  • Preparation: We will then proceed to a changing room where we explain the further process.
  • The procedure: We will then proceed to our open ended No-Scalpel vasectomy, which typically takes 10-25 minutes including local anaesthetic
  • After the procedure: Following the procedure we will initially let you watch an aftercare video and then answer all the questions you may still have. We will give you thorough printed information regarding the do’s and don’ts and explain how and when to supply your semen sample(s). With your semen sample kit you will also receive aftercare information in print.
  • How long does the driver wait? The whole procedure usually can take between 20 and 60 minutes, but I would typically recommend to plan for 45 minutes. Occasionally we have to keep a patient for longer, but it is uncommon.
