Safe And Effective Vasectomy - Gold Coast
Take Control of Your Future Sooner With a Lower Upfront Cost
At MSI Vasectomy Gold Coast we provide fast, safe and effective vasectomies with fewer complications, using the ‘no scalpel open ended’ method. This type of vasectomy not only decreases the chance of infection but also includes the use of our virtually *painless anaesthetic delivery technique, considered the benchmark in vasectomy procedures.
A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure and a form of permanent contraception that is suitable for Gold Coast men who have decided not to have any or don’t wish to have any more children. The procedure involves separating the cut end of the tubes (vas deferens) that move sperm from the testicles to the penis.

at MSI Gold Coast
At MSI Vasectomy Gold Coast we only use the ‘open ended no scalpel’ technique and perform the procedure using local anaesthetic.
Open Ended Vasectomy
An open ended vasectomy only closes the upper part of the vas deferens leaving the end connected to the testicle completely open. As a result, the sperm are still released within the scrotum, but the volume is very small. This technique allows the sperm to be naturally reabsorbed into the body so there is less chance of experiencing congestive epididymitis or other complications.
No Scalpel Vasectomy
Only a single small puncture in the skin is required for a no scalpel vasectomy, which means there is no need for any stitches. A specially designed set of forceps is also used to decrease the chance of infection.
We only offer local anaesthetic for the procedure at our associated Medical Centres. However, our *painless anaesthetic delivery technique is the benchmark in vasectomy procedures and was pioneered by our lead vasectomist, Dr Justin Low. The technique has been found to reduce sensations of pain for most patients, with 79% reporting experiencing less pain than expected or no pain at all.
The open ended technique allows the sperm to be naturally reabsorbed into the body, so there is less chance of experiencing any post-procedure complications.

The MSI No Scalpel Open Ended Vasectomy
The MSI No Scalpel Open Ended Technique uses an inert permanent suture rather than a metal clip (which can fall off) or a dissolving suture (which can cause inflammation). We also use Bupivacaine local anaesthetic which has a longer duration of action and may protect from nerve inflammation.

Does having a vasectomy affect sex enjoyment?
No, having a vasectomy will not impact your sex life or affect sex enjoyment. A vasectomy doesn’t affect the production of testosterone so your sex drive won’t be affected and neither will your ability to get an erection or ejaculate semen.
Are there any risks or complications after the vasectomy procedure?
As vasectomy is a minor procedure, complications after are rare. However, all surgical procedures involve a degree of risk and minor infections and Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome can occasionally occur. Your vasectomy doctor will discuss all of the possible risks and complications with you before you have the procedure.
Can a vasectomy be reversed?
A vasectomy should always be considered irreversible. However, an operation to reconnect the vas deferens is possible but it’s important to note though that a vasectomy reversal is expensive, not normally covered by health insurance and doesn’t have a 100% success rate.
Is a no scalpel open ended vasectomy painful?
During the procedure itself, you will experience little to no pain as a result of the local anaesthetic used. However, once the anaesthesia wears off, you can expect some pain in your scrotum and you may notice some slight swelling and bruising but this is completely normal and will subside within a few days.
Does a vasectomy involve a man's sex organs?
No, a vasectomy doesn’t involve a man’s sex organs. Neither the penis or testicles are affected and you can expect to have normal testes, hormones, erections and ejaculation after the procedure.
When can sexual activity be resumed?
You can resume sexual activity approximately 7 days after having a vasectomy. However, for the first 3 months after having the procedure you use another method of contraception, as active sperm can remain in the vas deferens tube ahead of the cut for that amount of time. You should keep using alternative contraception until a semen test shows a zero sperm count.
