Costs of Vasectomy Reversal Surgery

microsurgeryVasectomy reversal is a costly procedure, and is rarely covered by insurance plans. The expense of this surgery is a result of many factors — an operating microscope may cost up to $250,000 or more, and microsurgical instruments and supplies are also quite expensive. A single microsurgical suture — which is manufactured by hand — costs over $40. In addition, there is the professional expertise of nurses, anesthesiologists and the surgeon which contributes to the total cost.

Some reversal surgeons and clinics, in an attempt to reduce some of these costs, perform vasectomy reversal surgery in an office setting, using only local anesthesia and mild oral or intravenous sedation. While this may work well in some instances, many patients do not respond well to this approach, becoming restless or uncomfortable. Such a situation places the successful outcome of this extremely delicate surgery in jeopardy. Furthermore, the need to manage patient comfort distracts the surgeon from focusing fully on achieving the most accurate reconnection possible, and many offices may not be fully equipped to handle side effects or reactions to medications should they occur.

Walters Day Surgery - TacomaDr. Finnerty believes the best combination of safety and cost while providing the optimal chance for successful reversal is to perform the procedure in an ambulatory surgery setting. The presence of a fully trained anesthesiologist to provide general anesthesia assures your comfort and safety while allowing the surgeon to fully concentrate on the challenging and technically demanding task of restoring your fertility.

Throughout his nearly 40 years of experience with microsurgical vasectomy reversal, Dr. Finnerty has been committed to making the procedure as affordable as possible, in order that families may realize their hopes and dreams for more children. In line with this commitment and mission, he has kept his surgical fees as low as possible — in many cases less than half what other microsurgeons with comparable experience charge.

Our family now has 7 blessings, 3 of which you had a very special part in. Thank you!

We wanted to share our delightful news with you. We were blessed with a beautiful baby daughter in October.

My wife and I would like to give you and your staff a hearty "thank you" for the professionalism and care given us...following my son''s departure to our heavenly Father. Your calming manner and assurance that we had a reasonable chance at reattaching my vas deferens, which might allow us to get pregnant, was at fruition soon after our stay in Tacoma. 14 days following the procedure, my wife ... had become pregnant!. We lost our first son, and Dr. Finnerty, touched by God, enabled us to have another son ...

Easter blessings to you and your family from us. We are having a special celebration and invite you to join us -- we celebrate the life of our new daughter.

My husband had a vasectomy reversal four and one-half years ago performed by Dr. Finnerty. Three and one half years after, we were able to conceive a child. Our daughter is such a constant joy in our lives.

We were very excited to learn just before Christmas that the surgery was a success. We saved the news for out kids until Christmas Eve and what a blessing their reaction was, it couldn''t have been a better Christmas present! We do thank you so much for providing your services at realistic fees, we could never have done it had there not been options other than what we found locally.

Our child is a true gift from God. God bless you for turning my vasectomy around after 30 years with so much care and love. We will always love you.

I am writing to send our heartfelt thanks to you for your expertise. On September 9th, you performed my husband''s procedure. Three weeks later, we conceived our first daughter. She was born exactly 43 weeks post-op. Since then, we have welcomed a son and also another daughter. We''ll always be grateful.

A little over 5 years ago, my husband and I flew from Chicago to your office to have his vasectomy reversed. We both want you to know how grateful we are -- to you, to your staff, and for your expertise. Since the surgery, we have had Michael (almost 4!) and Mary Jo (10 months) ... We feel it is important for you to know what a difference you made in our lives, and what an awesome grace it was to have you as our surgeon. Words cannot convey how much we appreciate what you have made possible for us -- we will be eternally grateful!
C. & K.P., Chicago
A child is God''s most precious gift. We joyfully announce the birth of our son.
J.C., Idaho
We have been so excited about our new son and he has been such a joyous addition to our family ... Thank you so much for your devotion and belief in vasectomy reversal, we have been so blessed by our little guy. Of course, he can never take the place of our daughter who died, but he sure brings new joy to us ... Again, thank you for all you did! We have been so blessed....

My husband had his vasectomy nearly 13 years before the reversal, which resulted in the birth of our daughter.
