Our vasectomy services at MSI Townsville
No-scalpel vasectomyWe 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 vasectomyAn 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 AnaestheticAt 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.

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 chronic post operative pain.

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.
