Dr. Schow and Team, My husband had a vasectomy reversal in June of 2012 (after about 13 years of having his vasectomy) his counts came back around 5 million so we knew it was possible. I myself also had some medical issues that needed to be looked at. 3 months after I had polyps removed from the inside of my cervix we found out that we were pregnant! I am due October 9, 2014. I cannot thank you and your team enough for the wonderful job you did with my husband! I would recommend your center for anyone looking into a reversal! Todd & Carissa
Dear Dr. Schow, My husband had his reversal done 3 years ago. I am happy to say that I am now 22 weeks pregnant with TWINS! We are thrilled! I’m sure we would have conceived a lot earlier if we weren’t a dual military couple – duty calls A LOT for us! Patrick and Jennifer
Dr Schow, We have been meaning to send you a letter, but our life has been so exciting lately! Jeff had his reversal May of 2010. He had had his vasectomy 12 years prior, so we knew it may be a little tricky for us to get pregnant. We weren’t sure if the reversal was going to work for us, even though Jeff’s numbers were good. All of a sudden we found out March 2013 we are pregnant!!! We have a wonderful baby boy who is now 4 months old! Thank you so much for this miracle! We did not do any fertility drugs, it is such a miracle. We can not thank you enough for this awesome miracle. We are so happy and blessed! Jeff and Sara
Thank You. We cannot express enough our gratitude and appreciation for your services. Two years ago, my husband and I visited your office for a consult. You helped make us feel at ease and we were very encouraged by your experience and results. At the end of June 2011, my husband had a double bypass vasectomy reversal (bilateral vaso-epididymostomy) more than 25 years after his original vasectomy. We were pregnant four months later. On June 28, 2012 our son was born. He is a true joy! Thank you for your skill and your passion to provide the services you do. You have changed our lives. Collin and Kirsten
Dr. Schow, I have been meaning to send news for 4 years. We had 2 boys then I decided to get a vasectomy. We soon regretted my decision and 8 years later researched options to fix what I had done. We found your clinic to have the best success rates and reasonable cost. There were some other physicians that offered lower costs but none of them had specialized training in performing vasectomy reversals. Most of them are not even urologists. I couldn’t believe that family physicians and orthopedic surgeons feel that they are qualified to do this delicate microsurgery without even a microscope. It was an easy decision to have you do the surgery, even if it cost a bit more. After the surgery, we waited only 8 days before trying which was against your advice but luckily it all worked out. We conceived our 3 child 2 months after the surgery and then went on to have 2 more children!. I cannot thank you enough for my family you were so instrumental in helping create. I have since been asked who did my procedure that was so incredibly successful and have recommended you to others. Thank you again for your skill. Tony and Tiona
Hi guys, You performed my husband’s reversal in December 2011. It was tricky as his vasectomy was about 8 years prior and we had already tried another reversal – unsuccessfully. The first surgeon we went to was a local urologist and in hindsight that was foolish. We paid the same for both reversals although since the first doctor does just a handful each year and Dr Schow performs them weekly, we now know it was a no-brainer. Our first reversal doc also convinced us to try IVF after his failed reversal so that was an additional amount of lost $$$ and heartache to endure. Dr. Schow is an excellent surgeon and we are so thrilled with the results. Thanks for making our dreams come true! Our first daughter was born on 8/20/13. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!
Thanks so much for your good work. My wife and I have had two great babies since the operation. I highly recommend your business to anyone who has had a vasectomy and wants a reversal. GREAT JOB! David and Angelina
After 19 1/2 years from the time of my vasectomy, MMHC performed a reversal on 11/30/2012. The reversal was a success and in April of 2013 we were pregnant. I am thrilled to announce that we gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on 1/8/2014.
When I began researching vasectomy reversals, I became concerned as I read that the success rate drops significantly if the vasectomy was done more than 15 years earlier. I also read that your age can be a factor. After significant research, I was delighted to find one of the very best surgeons (probably the best!) was right here in Minnesota. After consultation, Dr. Schow assured me that the 18 years since my vasectomy and being 56 years old were not significant issues. Less than 14 months ago I had the procedure done at MMHC by Dr. Schow. It was November 2012. On January 14, 2014 my wife Elia and I welcomed Allie Marie into the world. As you can see in the pictures she is not only perfect, she is gorgeous. (Not that I could be biased). Elia and I want to thank Dr. Schow and his staff for doing such a great job with everything. Special thanks to Kevin who is a prince among men and always treated us with the greatest of understanding and compassion. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, John.
Hi guys! I keep forgetting to send you an email but Jake had his reversal last March and I’m now 26.5 wks pregnant. Sure didn’t take long for that to happen!! Thanks for your great job! Let me know if you’d like a testimonial sent with picture of the baby after it’s born! You can use me for a reference anytime! Thanks again, Jill
