Men who have decided that they no longer want to have children may decide to get a vasectomy. A vasectomy severs and blocks the sperm ducts that enable the passage of sperm during ejaculation. Your body will still produce semen, but the semen will no longer contain sperm once you have healed after the procedure.


A vasectomy is a highly effective and permanent method of male birth control. The effectiveness of this form of contraception is over 99%. In the procedure, the tube between the testicles and the urethra is cut or clamped so that sperm is blocked. This tube is called the vas deferens, which is why the procedure is called a vasectomy.

At Sulphur Surgical Clinic we perform a no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy. In this procedure, the numbing is done with a painless spray that delivers the numbing liquid through the skin without the need for a steel needle. This technique spares the patient from the pain of the injection and allows for a nearly pain-free no-scalpel vasectomy to be performed.

The no-scalpel vasectomy differs from a conventional vasectomy in that is does not require the use of a scalpel or knife to cut the skin. Instead, the physician uses a specially designed instrument to make a tiny opening in the skin. The vasectomy is then done through this tiny hole, and no stitches are needed to close the opening which heals quickly with virtually no scarring.

This procedure does not require sedation and can be done in the office. To help with anxiety and pain, oral medications are generally given prior to the start of the procedure.
