Fees & Payment Policies

There are three components to the fees for microsurgical vasectomy reversal: the ambulatory surgery center, the anesthesiologist, and the surgeon”s fees. Dr. Finnerty has worked with both the hospital and anesthesiologists to help keep your costs as affordable and predictable as possible.

Every effort has been made to make reversal surgery as affordable as possible for our patients. Please be aware that the pricing for anesthesia and ambulatory care center services are not established by Dr. Finnerty, but are determined by anesthesia and the hospital based on the respective costs of providing those services. They may therefore be subject to change without notice.

In order to keep costs as low as possible, all services must be paid in full at or before the time of your surgery.

Surgical Fees and the Ambulatory Surgical Center

We currently charge a single fee of  $5343 for surgery, regardless of complexity. This includes both Dr. Finnerty”s fee and the Ambulatory Surgery Center at St. Joseph”s Hospital.

A $500 down payment is required to schedule the procedure, with the balance due one week prior to surgery. Scheduled surgery may be cancelled up until 10 days prior, with full refund of the deposit. Surgeries cancelled after this time will forfeit their deposit, unless a documented medical or family emergency occurs, at the discretion of Dr. Finnerty. For questions, call our surgery scheduler at (253) 207-4213 and ask for Rhonda, our surgery scheduler.

Please do not make any travel arrangements until you have verified that your surgery is scheduled.


Pacific Anesthesia at St. Joseph’s Hospital currently charges $975 for anesthesia services for reversal surgery. This price is fixed and independent of the type of surgery performed. Payment in full before the time of surgery is required; they request that payment be made one week prior if possible. Pacific Anesthesia may be reached at(801) 432-2600 for questions.

The total cost for anesthesia, hospital services, and surgeon’s fees, therefore, is $6318.

Payment Methods

We accept Mastercard and VISA. Cashiers checks and money orders are also welcome; personal checks will be accepted, but there is a substantial penalty for returned checks.

Other Expenses

In general, healthy patients will not require any lab or other diagnostic studies prior to anesthesia. This is at the discretion of the anesthesiologist at the time of your surgery, however. If additional tests such as blood work, cardiogram, or x-rays are required for the safety of your procedure, additional costs may be incurred which are not listed above.

The above costs do not include the expense of postoperative prescriptions, medical supplies, or semen analysis tests or other lab work to evaluate your fertility after surgery. Any office visits for problems or concerns related to the surgery are included up to 90 days after surgery Visits after this time period will be subject to our usual charges for office visits. You may call us for pricing information on such visits.

If you have any questions on these costs or our financial policies, feel free to contact us for further information.
