Vasectomy Reversal - Overview

By Tiffany Rindels, @tiffanyrindels

Dr. Landon Trost, specialist in male infertility and andrology, provides a general overview on vasectomy reversal. Vasectomy reversal is surgery to undo a vasectomy. It reconnects each tube (vas deferens) that carries sperm from a testicle into the semen. After a successful vasectomy reversal, sperm are again present in the semen and you may be able to get your partner pregnant.

Success rates with vasectomy reversal will range from about 40 percent to over 90 percent. Many factors affect whether a reversal is successful in achieving pregnancy, including time since a vasectomy, partner age, definition of success, and surgeon experience and training.

This video is one of several in a series on vasectomy reversal discussing:

  • the condition
  • treatment
  • costs
