No Scalpel Vasectomy
Imagine having a safe and easy 30 minute in-office procedure that will allow you to have a happy, healthy sex life without worrying about getting your partner pregnant! For your convenience and comfort, this simple and gentle procedure is performed in my office in a private, relaxing environment instead of the hospital or surgical center.
Dr. Rohde's Expertise
Dr. Rohde has 18 years of experience performing the no scalpel procedure. He was the instructor for the procedure at the SIU Family Medicine Residency Program for 13 years and trained both resident physicians and practicing colleagues in the technique.
No Scalpel Vasectomy History
The no-scalpel vasectomy is a simple, gentle, and elegant office procedure developed in China in 1974 by Chinese surgeon Dr. Li Shunqiang. Americans have taken to this procedure as a simple, fast method of permanent birth control. Did you know that there are over 500,000 vasectomies performed annually in North America alone?

With this new approach there is no knife, no cutting incision and no stitches. Men who have undergone no-scalpel vasectomy express amazement at the minimal physical discomfort they experienced both during the procedure and during recovery.

Instead of using a scalpel to make two small cuts in the scrotum, as in the conventional vasectomy, I use a special sharp instrument to make a tiny puncture in the scrotum to work through. This opening is about 1/4" and requires no stitches to close.

AVOID THE NEEDLE - In a further refinement of the procedure I am able to provide local anesthesia without a needle - I use a jet injector or "hypospray" (just like on Star Trek!!) to put the numbing medicine where it needs to be - right through the skin - again with minimal discomfort to you!! You get to choose your method of anesthesia!

Making an Appointment
When you have decided on a vasectomy as your preferred method of permanent birth control, you may simply call the office for an appointment time for a Pre-vasectomy consultation where I will discuss the procedure in detail so you can make an informed decision. I like for you to bring along your partner so she will also understand the procedure and its benefits.

At the Office
Plan on spending one hour at the office. I request that you have someone bring you to the clinic after taking your muscle relaxant, and then have them available to drive you home. They may stay with you during the procedure, if you wish. The procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes.

When you arrive and register at the office, you will be taken to the procedure room and have the surgical area prepared with a surgical scrub and sterile drapes prior to the procedure.
