No-scalpel Vasectomy

The no-scalpel vasectomy is a permanent or definitive contraceptive method for men that do not wish to have more children. This technique was developed in 1974 by Dr. Shunqiang Li in China.

The no-scalpel vasectomy is performed using two tools specially designed to attract the vas deferens of the testicles. Sharp and curved Kelly forceps are used as a clamp to puncture the skin, dilating it and separating the vas deferens from the blood vessels, which reduces the chances of causing a hematoma. A Foerster clamp holds the vas deferens firmly from outside the scrotum, without causing any injury. Finally, the vas deferens are ligated and cut before putting them back inside the scrotum without suturing the skin.

This procedure is currently considered the best method (Gold Standard) for vasectomies according to the prestigious American Association of Urology.
The no-scalpel vasectomy only prevents the passage of spermatozoa into the ejaculate. Although sperm cells are still produced, they are reabsorbed by the body without causing any complication.
