So You’re Thinking about Vasectomy…
Vasectomy is simply a process of accessing the vasa (the tubes that carry sperm from the testes) and blocking these tubes. Traditionally, the vas tubes were accessed by cutting into the scrotum with a scalpel. In the 1970s a doctor in China developed a more gentle technique using very fine tools to access the tubes through a tiny puncture. This "no-scalpel" technique has fewer complications and most patients find the method to be surprisingly gentle. During her fellowship in Family Planning, Dr. Miller learned to perform vasectomies. She perfected her surgical skills both in the United States and internationally. She continues working to optimize her patients experiences and to expand access to vasectomy services in New York City and now throughout Massachusetts. She has lead numerous talks and workshops about vasectomy, and trains other physicians on the no scalpel technique.
Vasectomy is a method of permanent contraception. Across the world, vasectomy is becoming more and more popular. Vasectomy is simple, permanent, and highly effective. Dr. Sarah Miller is a board-certified Family Medicine physician and Family Planning specialist who has done hundreds of vasectomies over the years.
