Are Vasectomies Reversible?
Yes, vasectomies are reversible. While success rates may vary from person to person, reversing a vasectomy is an established way to regain fertility and attempt to have a child naturally. With new microsurgical techniques, we are able to provide high rates of success whether it has only been a few years, or it has been over 10 years since the original vasectomy.
How Much Does a Vasectomy Reversal Cost?
Our total cost for a vasectomy reversal surgery performed by a sub specialized reproductive microsurgeon is $7995.
Vasectomy Reversal Success Rates
Our results are among the highest vasectomy reversal success rates world-wide.
We perform a high volume of vasectomy reversals, and Dr. Flannigan is sub specialized in this procedure spending an extra 2 years of reproductive microsurgical training beyond his regular urology training. We have some of the highest success rates for vasectomy reversals in the world.
Our vasectomy reversal success rates are 98.9%, where any sperm is present in the ejaculate afterwards, and 90.5% for obtaining greater than 2 million moving sperm. These outcomes are irrespective of time since vasectomy (1 to 26 years) and include both types of vasectomy reversal microsurgical techniques, the typical Vasovasostomy and the more complicated Vasoepididymostomy when needed.

Fertility Options After Vasectomy
In this review, we discuss the fertility options following vasectomy. We compare and contrast the pros and the cons of vasectomy reversal, sperm retrieval and IVF-ICSI.
Automated rare sperm identification from low-magnification microscopy images of dissociated microsurgical testicular sperm extraction samples using deep learning.
In this study, our collaborative research group developed an artificial intelligence-based algorithm to detect extremely rare sperm with 96% accuracy in semen samples and 85% accuracy in microTESE testis samples. We are working to clinically validate this tool in followup pilot trial.
Using clinically derived human tissue to 3-dimensionally bio print personalized testicular tubules for in vitro culturing: first report.
We are working to develop novel personalized medicine approaches to regenerating sperm production in the lab using techniques such as 3D bio printing. Here we publish the world’s first report using human testis cells.
