Men who have previously undergone vasectomy may later decide for a variety of reasons that they wish to have another child. No matter how many years since the vasectomy, a reversal is possible. The procedure is done under a microscope and takes only 11/2 – 2 hours to complete. If performed by Dr. Schow, vasectomy reversals are highly effective for restoring sperm to the ejaculate with a 97% success rate. Dr. Schow is both nationally and internationally recognized as an expert in microsurgical vasectomy reversals. Patients have traveled from as far away as Japan, China, Spain and Australia to have their vasectomy reversal performed at MMHC. Dr. Schow performs about 200-225 vasectomy reversals annually.
