Vasectomies are one of the most common procedures performed by urologists at The Urology Group. Yet, there are still a lot of questions, uncertainty and misperceptions concerning this procedure. The number one thing you should know? It’s a quick, virtually painless and highly successful office procedure.
The benefits are clear for any man considering a vasectomy. It is the most effective form of birth control, which can simply improve intimacy with partners by reducing worry of unplanned pregnancies.
Also, it’s easy. This quick (about 20 minutes) outpatient procedure is non-invasive. Most insurance companies cover vasectomies, as it is considerably more cost effective when compared to alternative birth control methods. Even without insurance, a typical vasectomy costs only about $700.
Finally, the biggest thing men want to know is what happens after the procedure.
The procedure does not alter hormone levels such as testosterone, and therefore will not affect your libido, sex drive or ability to get an erection. Men perform just as they did before their vasectomies, but without the stress of an unplanned pregnancy!
Recovery is minimal, only requiring one or two days off work, which is why VasMadness is the perfect time to schedule a vasectomy. Men can get the procedure done and take a day or two off work to watch the NCAA basketball tournament.
The Urology Group is dedicating several doctors’ schedules on Wednesday afternoon, March 20 and Thursday morning, March 21 for vasectomies, with games tipping off that day. We are partnering with WEBN-FM and Alamo Electronics to offer a grand prize giveaway of a 42″TV during the month of March. We’ll also have special goodie bags for men who get the procedure March 20-21. Click here for details.
To schedule an appointment or to learn more, just visit our website or call (513) 841-7500. We’re here to walk you though this simple procedure, and are happy to sign your doctor’s note for work. Happy basketball watching (and whatever else happens after the tournament)!
