What is a Vasectomy Reversal?
Medically known as Vaso-vasostomy, this surgery restores the vas deferens, that is the duct which delivers sperm to the urethra. This procedure allows the restoration of the sperm flow in the patient so pregnancy can be achieved through natural conception.
Many say that the only certainty in life is change. We all make decisions that might later reconsider.
Life may bring changes and opportunities at any stage.
If you are looking to restore your fertility after a vasectomy, there is an option with great chances of success:
Is it covered by OHIP?
No, the Ontario Health Insurance Program (OHIP) and most Canadian provincial healthcare systems do not cover the costs of vasectomy reversals. The only option is then to have it performed as a privately paid procedure.
What are the chances of success?
Each couple situation is unique and both male and female factors contribute to achieving a pregnancy. Many personal factors including age, medical history and overall health play an important role in achieving the final goal of conceiving a baby. After these considerations Dr. Ramirez results show that about 70% to 90% of having viable semen with spermatozoid cells.
What is the cost?
The cost of a vasectomy reversal varies depending on the geographical location of the practitioner and the hospital where the procedure will be performed. In our area the cost is approximately $4900. This amount includes the surgeon fee, hospital fee and anaesthetic fee.
Dr. Ramirez is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada with extensive experience in this procedure and an outstanding record of positive results in patients that have undergone the reversal.
We are pleased to offer rapid access to an initial consultation without the need for a doctor’s referral.
