Vasectomy can be reversed to restore fertility. It is not always successful and the longer it has been since vasectomy the less successful it becomes. Our Consultants often use magnification to improve the surgery and have higher than 90% success rates (first time reversal) at restoring sperm to the semen. Unfortunately restoring sperm to the semen does not guarantee fertility as this depends on both whether the sperm are effective, and problems that may be affecting his sexual partner.
There are other methods of having children after vasectomy called artificial reproductive techniques (including a method known as “test tube babies”). Our Consultants will help guide you through these choices (click here for further information)
