Vasectomy (commonly known as “the snip”) is a very common and successful form of contraception. It involves a short operation on the testicles to cut segments out of the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the body. The operation is often performed under local anaesthetic, but can be done under general anaesthesia if necessary.
After an initial consultation the Staffordshire Urology Clinic can arrange a Local Anaesthetic Vasectomy or a General Anaesthetic Vasectomy. If you would like to discuss these options with one of our consultants please contact 01782 382507 and book an appointment.
Staffordshire Urology Clinic Consultant Surgeon Lyndon Gommersall made the Weekend Sentinel for his development of keyhole bladder cancer surgery and enhanced recovery (view article) in Staffordshire. The article describes the advances achieved in terms of time in hospital after Laparoscopic Cystectomy. On average patients after keyhole surgery will go home 8 days after their surgery, most will be home within a week. They also have significant benefits with an earlier return to work and less requirement for painkillers. By prescribing the recovery of patients after surgery patients drink fluids in recovery, walk one day after surgery and eat food on day three. The article also highlights local excellence in keyhole cancer surgery (Laparoscopic surgery) for prostate, kidney and bladder cancer.
Mr Lyndon Gommersall, Consultant Urological Surgeon will be giving an update on urological cancers to the Staffordshire Moorlands Cancer Support Group on Thursday 17th November 2011.

Each cancer requires a specific set of surgical skills but the aim is to treat our patients with the technique that speeds up their recovery from treatment as quickly as possible but never compromising on the treatment of their disease.
