Vasectomy Consultation Only £95
This is an option for patients not 100% sure about having a vasectomy or using TVVS. Should you then decide to go ahead, we will take the cost of the vasectomy consultation off the complete package, so your overall cost will remain £490 if booked within 3 months of the consultation. Please note a face to face consultation with Dr Kittel requires the prior attendance of his highly informative webinar, which takes place every Wednesday at 7pm and answers 99% of all questions.
Additional Semen Sample TVVS* £45
This is an offer only to TVVS patients. It is for an additional semen sample that may occasionally become necessary. It is a non-profit rate and not available to non-TVVS customers.
Post Vasectomy Semen Sample for any man interested** £90
Semen Sample Test for Azoospermia (no sperm). Note, this does not test for fertility - It is available to all patients who have not have their vasectomy with TVVS****. This test is an accurate laboratory sample which is checked by a doctor. It is cheaper than comparable tests on Amazon
Review appointment - private patients £0
Private patients generally do not pay for review appointments - they only pay if they do not attend a review appointment or once discharged from the service (unless there are some later issues related to vasectomy).
Review appointment NHS or DNA £150
NHS patients are reviewed by their GP as the NHS does not commission us for reviews, but only for the vasectomy procedure and the semen sampling. Early reviews for early post vasectomy symptoms are free on a discretionary basis. Price is for 1st review. Further reviews are charged at £90 per appointment. Further surgical or invasive work will be quoted separately.
* NHS TVVS patients until discharge only (typically 5-8 months after
procedure). Private patients for up to 3 years after discharge. Re-check
required in 20% of patients, usually no more than 1 and occasionally 2
re-checks. Free re-checks can often be obtained via your GP. Please note
this is a non-profit rate.
** All patients not registered with TVVS: 1) All non-TVVS patients 2)
NHS patients that were discharged from our system due to clearance (5-8
months after clearance) and 3) private patients who have been
vasectomised more than 3 years ago. Please compare the Amazon home test sample here https://amzn.to/3Z56hNE. This is not as accurate as our sample and not checked by a trained clinician.
Price Guarantee & transparency around cost
Price quoted above is final. There are no hidden charges. As health services are VAT free there is no VAT to pay.
We offer a full refund minus admin charge of £49 (unless you had a webinar / consultation or bespoke letter form Dr Kittel) if you change your mind up to a week before your vasectomy.
Partial refund for late appointment changes or cancellations less than 1 week before the procedure (see below).
Read our cancellation policy for more information (cancellation policy also affects late changes of appointments).
Full refund of your entire payment if you paid online in error and email us within 60 minutes of your payment (i.e. we have not started a patient process with you yet, added you to our clinical software, sent you forms, explained the process, took your history etc). Once we have started to work on your case there is an admin charge of £49.
Free repeat vasectomy procedure (in rare case of failure) included in price (private patients never pay TVVS twice)
In the rare event where a vasectomy fails we will repeat the procedure for free for up to 15 months after your initial vasectomy*.
It however does not include external hospital fees if more tests are necessary i.e. an MRI scan to find a third or ingrown vas or doing an exporatory vasectomy under General Anaesthetic with a different specialist (for example an anatomically very difficult first vasectomy cannot be repeated).
Thus, if a second procedure becomes necessary because your vas heals together again, we will do a repeat vasectomy free of charge within 15 months of the original vasectomy (quite contrary to a private hospital where you would have to pay again). Your payment automatically covers you for this assurance.*
We accept payments online, over the phone and cash in clinic after prior agreement:
What you can expect
In exchange for your payment you can expect us to use modern high quality equipment. TVVS follow extensive anti-infection procedures to avoid MRSA or other infections. We guarantee all private patients will only see Dr Kittel.
We ensure premises and stock are checked regularly. Where single us instruments cannot be used we use an approved local NHS CSSD department for the sterilisation of instruments.
Patient self reported audits
Our regular audit shows very low infection rates, very low complications and very low failure rates.
We cannot do your vasectomy – full refund
In some rare cases, where the surgeon feels unable to proceed after you have attended you will get a full refund minus the consultation fee if we can offer an explanation. This also applies if you have come for an assessment. Where we agreed a procedure previously you will get a full refund of all fees paid.
Cancellation or change of appointment <1week before vasectomy by patient
Changes to appointments or cancellation less than a week to 1 day before the procedure incurs a cancellation fee of £195. No refunds for cancellation < 24 hrs before the procedure (sorry, it is like missing your flight!).

Finally service at TVVS means, we are there for you. The price includes care not only during, but also after your vasectomy if you need us.
For patients, who want to know Dr Kittel personally, or have additional questions (bespoke questions – letter required?) we provide a webinar followed by an optional consultation only service to discuss all aspects a vasectomy. This service costs £95. If you book a vasectomy we discount £95 from the full price.
