Training in No-Needle No-Scalpel
Virtually painless no-needle no-scalpel vasectomy is now considered the vasectomy method of choice for both patients and physicians.
The detail below provides an overview of the procedure, and world-class surgical training is a key component of the Gentle Procedures business model.
Gentle Procedures is a leader in the introduction of the no scalpel and no needle vasectomy surgical procedure in markets around the world. Our medical team has world-class training and support, and we are proud to operate at the highest standard of excellence.
Vasectomy Surgical Training Course
No-scalpel vasectomies at our affiliated clinics provide a virtually painless alternative to conventional vasectomy using a scalpel. Studies show that no-scalpel vasectomies have a complication rate eight times lower than conventional approaches and involve less discomfort. – especially when coupled with no-needle anesthesia, as we do at our vasectomy clinics.
Please contact us today for more information, or to schedule a call to discuss potential training with Dr. Pollock.
The Gentle Procedures vasectomy training course is part of our turnkey business model for doctors.
Why No-Scalpel Vasectomy?
No-scalpel vasectomy is different from a conventional vasectomy in the way the doctor gets to the vas tubes, not in the way he or she blocks them. In addition, an improved method of local anesthesia, the no-needle method, helps make the procedure virtually painless.
In a conventional vasectomy, after the scrotum has been numbed with a local anesthetic, the doctor makes two cuts in the skin and lifts out each tube in turn, cutting and blocking them. Then the doctor stitches the cuts closed.
In a no-scalpel vasectomy the doctor locates the tubes under the skin and holds them in place with a small clamp. Instead of making two incisions, the doctor makes one tiny puncture with a special instrument. The same instrument is used to gently stretch the opening so the tubes can be reached. This line accurately represents the actual size of the puncture. (I) Through this tiny opening both tubes are temporarily lifted out and then blocked using heat cauterization.
The first image below (at left) shows how the vas tubes are accessed via the small opening. The centre image gives you an idea of the actual size of the cut that will be made during your no-scalpel vasectomy. The third image is just shown so you can compare the no-scalpel technique with the cuts made for a conventional vasectomy.
Ensuring Sterilization – Fascial Interposition
Then our procedure includes what many studies describe as a crucial step, called fascial interposition.
This step involves tying the sheath or covering of the vas over one end of the cut tube with a dissolving thread, to create a natural barrier between the two cut ends.
The fine tubes are then gently placed back into the scrotum and the tiny opening heals within days and soon becomes invisible. There is very little bleeding with the no-scalpel technique. No stitches are needed to close the tiny opening, which heals quickly, without a scar.
