A vasectomy is one of the most popular forms of birth control used. This safe, minor procedure is performed to make men sterile and is effective more than 99% of the time. At UAMS, our Urology Clinic offers personalized care for men interested in having a vasectomy.
A vasectomy is one of the safest procedures you can have, and UAMS offers you the advantages of state-of-the-art equipment and technology combined with caring and compassionate doctors. You will probably feel sore for a few days after the surgery and should rest for at least one day. Complications, if any, are usually minor and easily treated.
You should know that the vasectomy procedure does not work immediately. It may take weeks before the surgery will completely take effect, so you might need to use another method of birth control until then. Your UAMS doctor will provide all the information you need during your follow-up visits after your vasectomy.
In most cases, a vasectomy is considered a permanent procedure. However, some surgeons will perform vasectomy reversals.
