What Is a Vasectomy?
While birth control is often only thought of from the lenses of women, there are also birth control options available for men. The most popular of these is a vasectomy, a treatment that can be performed in a quick, outpatient setting. During this procedure, the tube that provides the sperm supply to the semen is severed, tremendously lowering the risk for unwanted pregnancy. Our team at Lawrence Family Practice Center is committed to providing the most advanced care to individuals and families throughout Lawrence, KS and the surrounding area. If you think a vasectomy could be a great fit for you and your future goals, contact our office to book an appointment and learn more.

How Is a Vasectomy Performed?
There are two primary techniques when it comes to performing a vasectomy: a conventional vasectomy and no-scalpel vasectomy. While a conventional vasectomy requires two small incisions into the scrotum, a no-scalpel vasectomy makes a tiny hole into the scrotum to access the vas deferens. The technique used for your vasectomy may depend on your overall health and personal preferences. One of our highly trained physicians can meet with you to discuss the different types of vasectomy techniques, how they vary, and the benefits of both.
