Vasectomy reversal surgery takes a considerable amount of time, generally lasting between 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours, due to the need for meticulous and delicate precision placement of microsurgical sutures.
Dr. Finnerty requires general anesthesia in all cases of vasectomy reversal surgery, unless there is a compelling medical reason for not doing so (which is very rare). Using current outpatient anesthesia techniques, general anesthesia is extremely safe, and recovery is typically smooth and comfortable for most patients.
Our anesthesia staff are all board-certified physicians, and are experienced in every aspect of anesthesiology, from outpatient surgery to major heart and trauma surgery. You will be under the care of experienced and highly qualified physicians with state-of-the-art training and equipment, dedicated to making your surgery experience a safe and pleasant one.
