A vasectomy is a safe, simple and effective birth control method and is considered painless or nearly painless. A typical vasectomy is done in our office in approximately 30 minutes using local anesthetic or at the Southwest Ohio Ambulatory Surgery Center using general anesthetic. After your initial consultation, you and Dr. Gaker will determine what is best for you.

A vasectomy reversal ("vasovasostomy") is an outpatient surgical procedure reconnecting the tubes (vas deferens) which were cut during a vasectomy and thus restoring the flow of sperm. The decision to reverse a vasectomy is usually made when a couple decide that they would like to be able to have a baby. About 25,000 men a year decide to have a vasectomy reversal. Dr. Gaker's success rate and affordable cost make him a surgeon who is in high demand.
