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. 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.
Failure insurance included in price (private patients never pay twice)
In the rare event where a vasectomy fails we insure you against this event for cost arising within TVVS Ltd 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.
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 insurance.*

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!).
