|The no-scalpel vasectomy
is a simple, gentle, and elegant office procedure
developed in China in 1974
by Chinese surgeon Dr. Li
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.
