Vasectomy | West Monroe, LA
When it comes to forms of permanent male birth control, a vasectomy is the ideal permanent surgical procedure available to men. The procedure carries a very low risk of complications and is available to be performed as an outpatient procedure with localized anesthesia. Dr. Marx performs a no-cut technique, which is the least invasive. The patient is sedated and local anesthesia is used in order to achieve a painless procedure.
The vasectomy procedure is nearly 100% effective.
Prior to a vasectomy, patients may be asked to prepare by:
- Washing the scrotum to prevent infection
- Not shaving the area
- Bringing a pair of tight-fitting underwear or athletic support to the surgery to support the scrotum and minimize swelling
- Arranging for transportation home to prevent extraneous movement
- Avoiding anti-inflammatory drugs prior to and following the procedure, which thins the blood and can cause excessive bleeding
