While a vasectomy is considered a minor operation, it is still an operation nonetheless. We use a local anesthetic that generally provides for a virtually painless procedure.
Everybody metabolizes anesthetic at different rates however, which is why some require top ups. On average we find out of 100 men we may see in a month, only 1 to 2 require additional anaesthetic top ups and even then only about 1-2 cc’s.
Keep in mind that the testicles are more sensitive than the fingers or the toes, and so pain in this region sometimes feels more than what it really is – and that is why we focus on a quick and minimally invasive procedure to ensure a pain-free experience.
