Will Vasectomy Reversal be Successful if the Vasectomy Was Performed Years Ago?

By. Dr. Ethan Grober

Many patients ask about the chance of a vasectomy reversal being successful if the vasectomy was performed many years ago. Good question!

In fact, frequently couples are discouraged from even considering a vasectomy reversal strictly based on the time from vasectomy.  Is this the right thing to tell couples?

I was curious about this, so together with a colleague we looked at our outcomes and discovered that vasectomy reversal remains a good option for couples seeking natural fertility even after many years.

Check out what we discovered!
