This is a very specialized type of surgery. It was pioneered and developed by a Urologist or Urological Surgeon as we are sometimes called. It is not a part of the board certification process or training of any other specialty. Furthermore, it is not a procedure for which training is offered by any other specialty. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Urology. I feel everyone performing this procedure should be as well. There are many people who seem to be performing this surgery now who are not trained or certified. I have focused my practice on vasectomy reversals and exclusively perform this type of surgery on a daily basis. As such, we have endeavored to offer the highest quality product and service available at an affordable price.
Vasectomy reversal procedures are not covered by health insurance policies as a general rule and are not procedures that I engage in any contractual relationship to accept insurance assignment. I try very hard to make vasectomy reversal surgery affordable for you and as such cannot accept insurance assignment for all or any portion of the procedure. My office staff therefore cannot assist you in filing or processing insurance claims for this purpose either. However, by controlling the total cost of the vasectomy reversal procedure for you, my total price is less than your hospital charges alone will be at many facilities, and usually lower than what many surgeons charge for their fee alone. What you felt was out of reach may now be available to you.
