Carolina Vasectomy Reversal Center: Our Practice
Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal and My Practice
Our practice is located in the Legacy Medical Center in Bluffton, South Carolina. We perform vasectomy reversal surgery every day. 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. There are physicians who offer this surgery without formal training or certification. Microsurgical experience in another field does not qualify you to perform this procedure.
I am Board Certified by the American Board of Urology. I feel everyone performing this procedure should be as well. 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, but not cheep. As such, I cannot accept insurance assignment for all or any portion of the procedure. My office staff cannot assist you in filing or processing insurance claims for this purpose either. By controlling all variable costs of the vasectomy reversal procedure, my total price is generally much less than your hospital or surgical center charges just for the room, 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. If I were to do your procedure at the hospital with their fees for the facility, anesthesia, supplies, and microscope use, this charge would be over 4 times the total fee I am able to offer you having purchased all of the equipment necessary to perform this procedure myself.
