More than 500,000 vasectomies are performed each year in the U.S. and 3 out of every 1,000 of these men request a reversal. The success of vasectomy reversal is dependent on the microsurgical technique of the surgeon.
Meet James Daitch, MD
A board-certified urologist, Dr. Daitch is a graduate of the Harvard Medical School. He completed his urologic residency, followed by a fellowship in male infertility/microsurgery, at the Cleveland Clinic. This special training is the reason that Dr. Daitch has performed more microsurgical vasectomy reversals than any other Valley urologist with a 90-95% success rate.
This outpatient surgical procedure takes approximately 3-4 hours and is performed using an operative microscope and extremely small sutures allowing a water tight connection between the two previously cut ends of the vas deferens. If an additional blockage is present — usually in the epididymis — he connects the vas to the epididymis to bypass the obstruction. This procedure requires additional operative time and microsurgical skill, but success rates remain around 90%.
While past studies demonstrated decreased success rates for those men five years and longer between vasectomy and vasectomy reversal, Dr. Daitch's success rates are 90-95% for all men who have reversal no matter the timing between procedures.
Compare to In Vitro
The eventual pregnancy success rates with vasectomy reversal compare very favorably to in vitro fertilization, which are typically around 40%. In addition, vasectomy reversal is less expensive than in vitro and eliminates both the female complications from hormonal manipulations and the increased twin or triplet birth rate.
