As a renowned expert in vasectomy reversal, Dr. Parviz Kavoussi has written a review article on vasectomy reversal which has been published in the World Journal of Clinical Urology. This review article discusses the appropriate evaluation of men interested in vasectomy reversal, techniques of performing vasectomy reversal with tips and caution for pitfalls, and the expected outcomes for surgeons performing these meticulous operations.
Although vasectomy reversal outcomes are not 100% or perfect, they should be pretty close to that in well trained hands. Dr. Kavoussi states, “It is not a good idea to be a surgeon who performs the occasional vasectomy reversal. The fact is, there is plenty of data showing sub-optimal success rates, unless the vasectomy reversal is performed by a surgeon with fellowship specialty training in this operation and who performs them frequently. It is not just about the technical know-how, although that is extremely important, but the appropriate evaluation and offering the right treatment options are crucial to help our couples achieve their goals of being parents. Although variations on surgical approaches have evolved over the years for vasectomy reversal, one constant is the need for a high level of training and skill in microsurgical techniques.”
This review article also discusses the data on robot assisted vasectomy reversal, including Dr. Kavoussi’s publication on his outcomes.
As an international leader in robot assisted vasectomy reversal, Austin Fertility & Reproductive Medicine is one of the top volume centers in the world in this operation.
