Young patients are welcome at TVVS
We welcome patients of all ages. However, young patients under the age of 25 with children and patients under the age of 30 without children are generally not easily considered when requesting a vasectomy, as many of them may change their minds in the future. For more recent thoughts on this issue, please also read this article by Dr Kittel
However, TVVS considers patients individually and by merit. For example I have vasectomised a 22 year old with 4 children and a 24 year old without children, previously and Dr Kittel makes exeptions where their cases were strong and well supported.
However, as Dr Kittel has to do an individual assessment of your case we require from patients to make a downpayment for a consultation of £90 prior to the application, of which £45 is non-refundable for Dr Kittels clinical time for your assessment. The £90 are counting towards your consultation and vasectomy and overall you will not be charged any more than any other patient. If Dr Kittel cannot do your vasectomy you will be refunded in full, but if you (often very rightly) change your mind at a later stage and cancel your appointment TVVS will keep your downpayment.
Furthermore, if you belong of one of these young patient groups and consider having a vasectomy you need to click here and complete a form designed for young patients. You need to make a strong case for your request in order to be considered for a vasectomy on an individual basis. The form on the other hand also helps you to reflect on your individual decision and gives you the opportunity to ensure your decision is firm and good and not one you may regret in the future.

Following your submission we will set you up on our clinical system and you will get a personal response from Dr Kittel via email (from firstname.lastname@example.org), usually within a week. You will also get a Welcome email, an “Application” and “Pre-Consent” form. Please fill these forms out online immediately. They will save into your medical record. You can then book a vasectomy appointment no earlier than 2-4 weeks from the submission of these 2 forms, which is the legal “cooling off” period.
