Talk about options for having a vasectomy…
“Dr. McHugh is in the top 5% of physicians who see vasectomy patients in the U.S. 2014-1018.” -Amino. com, inc.
The prevalence of vasectomy was 6.6% (compared with a tubal ligation prevalence of 16.35%).
Objective: To describe the demographics and family planning attitudes of vasectomized men.
Design: Retrospective cohort analysis of National Survey for Family Growth data collected through the National Center for Health Statistics between June 2006 and June 2010.
Methods: The survey sampled 10,403 men from various urban and rural communities, aged 15 to 45 years, regarding family planning attitudes. These sampled statistics could be extrapolated to provide a reasonably accurate national survey portrait.
Results: The prevalence of vasectomy was 6.6% (compared with a tubal ligation prevalence of 16.35%). The odds ratios (OR) for having a vasectomy in this sample were: currently married 7.8; previously married 5.8; and increased age 1.1. The odds increased with increased number of biologic children. Examples of factors decreasing the odds of having a vasectomy were: immigrant status (OR 0.18); African American (OR 0.22); Hispanic (OR 0.054); or Catholic (OR 0.55). Also, this survey determined that 19.6% of vasectomized men expressed a desire for future children suggesting a higher than previously recognized prevalence of sterilization regret; yet only 1.9% of vasectomized men in the sample reported having a reversal.
Conclusions: Many factors, some social, some medical, some unknown, contribute to the decision of a couple to proceed with one form or another of surgical sterilization.
Reviewer’s Comments: As pointed out in this article, there are many factors that contribute to the decision to cease further childbearing. A permanent sterilization procedure is a popular choice, particularly among married couples. The demographic factors that tilt a couple towards tubal ligation or vasectomy are explored in this article, and the data promote lively speculation.(Reviewer–Berel Held, MD).

It is very difficult to sew microscopic suture the size of a strand of hair to connect an opening the size of the “O” in God on a penny looking through a magnifying operating microscope. 12-15 sutures are placed on each side to complete the procedure.
It takes experience, patience, and having a “knack for it” to perform this procedure it in a time efficient and successful fashion.
The video shows the completion of one of 12-15 sutures necessary to complete one side.
Note the fluidity of completing the knot and the lack of wasted motion. This takes years of experience.

Our office made T-shirts a few years back with “We cater to cowards” on the front. They were a big hit, however it happened on more than one occasion that someone asked, “Aren’t you making fun of men? Aren’t you going to make them mad at you?” Well…here’s the dirty little secret…it is no secret that men don’t make good patients in general and they don’t make good vasectomy patient’s in particular. They are unabashedly honest about not liking the idea of “being cut on down there.” So… no it doesn’t embarrass them “a tall” and the more things we can do to make the process pleasant and yes, less painful, the better.
For our vasectomy patients we offer a wide array of options to neutralize this “pain concern issue.”
A recent testimonial from a vasectomy patient:
I was very pleased with the entire process. Dr. McHugh fully educated me on the vasectomy and then performed the procedure perfectly. He made the entire experience easy and painless.
