The No-Scalpel vasectomy technique has been practiced for more than 40 years. We use this technique to perform vasectomies in Colorado Springs exclusively at Pikes Peak Urology. This technique yields an excellent result with minimal pain and discomfort, both during and after the procedure. Patients may resume normal activity 5-7 days after the procedure versus 3-4 weeks with an open or scalpel-type vasectomy. This procedure typically takes between 20-30 minutes to perform and is usually done in the office. We are proud of our extremely high success and very low complication rates.
We routinely perform between 300-400 No-Scalpel vasectomies annually at Pikes Peak Urology and have a combined experience of more than 20,000 procedures in our office. Our providers offer pre-procedure anti-pain and anti-anxiety medicine to make the procedure as pain and worry-free as possible.
We have an infection rate of less than 1 in 1000 and an incidence of bleeding or swelling of the scrotum after the procedure of less than 1 in 500. Our failure rate is significantly less than 1 in 10,000.
The No-Scalpel vasectomy is an excellent option for gentleman and families desiring to prevent further fertility in a quick, easy and relatively painless fashion. We have extensive experience and a very high patient satisfaction rate with this technique. Please feel free to contact us and schedule a consultation for further information regarding this procedure.
This procedure is commonly covered by all insurance plans but we also offer competitive pricing for those patients without insurance. For more information about our vasectomy procedures, contact us today at (719) 531-7007.
