What is a vas to testicular bypass surgery and why would it be needed in a vasectomy reversal?

by Shearly (SU)
A vasectomy reversal is a microsurgical procedure for men who have undergone a vasectomy, and who now wish to father children. Vasectomy reversals are actually one of the most common elective surgeries for men; they have a high rate of success rate when performed by a skilled urologist, experienced in microsurgical techniques. (Even after years or even decades have passed since the original vasectomy.) There are two main forms of vasectomy reversal. The most common is the vas-to vas reconstruction. The second is a testicular bypass. The exact procedure will depend on several factors. In some cases, it is very straightforward, in others, an additional step, known as a testicular bypass surgery, may be required in order to restore a man’s full fertility.

Vasectomy Reversal: The Emotional Rollercoaster

Vasectomy Reversal: The Emotional Rollercoaster

by Rismary Cabrera
For a variety of reasons, George was certain he did not want children. He was so certain of it, in fact, that he underwent the procedure known as a vasectomy, which is meant to permanently render a man unable to father children. Five years later however, he met and feel deeply in love with Linda. For the first time in his life, George wanted to be a parent. He went to see his doctor to find out if his vasectomy could be reversed. He had some tests done, underwent a vasectomy reversal, and a few months later, he and Linda were in another doctor’s office, nervously waiting to hear some very important results.
