Where to get a vasectomy in Townsville

All of our vasectomies in Townsville are carried out at Townsville Day Surgery (1 Martinez Ave, West End QLD 4810, Australia).

Looking for a vasectomy in Townsville? At MSI Vasectomy, we offer an easy, fast procedure with fewer complications by using our ‘gold standard’ technique. As part of our commitment to increasing access to vasectomy services, we are very excited to partner with Townsville Day Surgery to provide quality vasectomy care.

Our vasectomy services at MSI Townsville

Our new model of care allows you to have your vasectomy in a premium facility, with the option of local anaesthetic (LA). Our doctors are trained to deliver LA using our ‘*painless delivery anaesthetic technique’. The best part is that depending on your level of private hospital insurance and your excess, you will pay either no gap or a maximum gap of $100.

No-scalpel vasectomy

We only use the no scalpel vasectomy technique at MSI. Only a single small puncture in the skin is required which means there are no stitches needed. We also use a specially designed set of forceps which decreases the chance of infection.

Open-ended vasectomy

An open ended vasectomy only closes the upper part of the tube which means the sperm are still released within the scrotum, but the volume is very small. They are naturally reabsorbed into the body, lowering the chance of having congestive epididymitis and other complications.

Local Anaesthetic

At MSI Townsville we offer local anaesthetic (LA). Our LA *painless anaesthetic delivery technique means many patients report experiencing little to no pain when the local anaesthetic is injected.

Why choose MSI for your vasectomy in Townsville?

Our vasectomy doctors perform only the most modern, effective and safe vasectomy procedure method (no scalpel, open ended vasectomy), and only use technologies that have been approved for use in Australia.

Our *painless anaesthetic delivery technique is the benchmark in vasectomy procedures. Pioneered by our lead vasectomist Dr Justin Low, the *painless needle technique has been found to reduce sensations of pain caused by the local anaesthetic needle for most patients

In a Medical Centre we do all the Medicare claiming for you so you will receive your Medicare refund quickly. Some other providers make you claim back yourself which is time consuming and can delay your refund.

Our accreditation and licensing mean we are one of the very few vasectomy providers able to offer private health insurance claiming to our patients. Many of our clinics are eligible for private health rebates for vasectomy procedures.

Our vasectomy prices include a range of free support services such as access to over the phone interpreters, pre-care advice and 24-hour aftercare, giving you round the clock access to our registered nurses.
All of our patients are fully supported by a specialised team of practitioners, ensuring you get the best standard of care before, during and after your appointment with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any more questions about our Townsville vasectomy services please don’t hesitate to contact us today. In the meantime please find below our most frequently asked questions about vasectomies.

A vasectomy is normally done under local anaesthetic, so the only pain you have to worry about is the tiny pinching feeling from the needle, and your doctor is going to make sure that you feel that as little as possible (almost half of all MSI Australia patients report feeling no pain at all).

There is no real difference in the efficacy rate between the two procedures (both have a higher than 99% success rate). However, vasectomy is the more affordable procedure and even though both procedures are safe, as tubal ligation involves a general anaesthetic and scalpel incisions, there are more possible side effects than having a vasectomy.

At MSI Australia we like all of our patients to consider their vasectomy a permanent procedure. While there are reversal services available, it is important not to make the decision to get a vasectomy based on your ability to have it reversed at some point. We encourage all patients to view a vasectomy as a permanent sterilisation procedure.

The age of men who have vasectomies can vary as much as their reasons for getting one. Legally anyone over the age of 18 is allowed to have one. However, there are other considerations to take into account around emotional maturity and preparedness. 

No, a vasectomy is not the same as castration as it does not involve removing the testicles. A vasectomy only affects the vas deferens, which is the tube that carries sperm from your testes to your prostate gland. We don’t remove it, or even impact your ability to produce sperm, all we do is prevent your sperm from mixing with your semen.

As a vasectomy is simply redirecting your sperm and not completely removing your testicles, your testosterone levels will remain unchanged. This means you won’t notice any difference to the physical features affected by testosterone production, such as facial hair, muscle mass, or voice depth.
