The Yale Urology Male Fertility Program provides specialized care to patients who seek fertility after a vasectomy. A biological pregnancy after vasectomy can be achieved with either vasectomy reversal or with sperm retrieval to be used in In Vitro Fertilization and Intracytoplasmic sperm injections.
Dr. Stanton Honig has more than 20 years experience performing microsurgical reconstructions in patients seeking vasectomy reversal. He is experienced with both vasovasostomy as well as the more complex procedure of microsurgical epididymovasostomy.
Many factors impact the success of vasectomy reversal, and we evaluate all the factors that are predictive of a good outcome after vasectomy reversal, including:
- Years since vasectomy
- Prior children
- Age and fertility status of the partner
- Physical examination findings such as swollen epididymis, presence of lump at vasectomy site called a granuloma, and the location of the vasectomy site
