What is a Vasectomy?
A minor surgical procedure to permanently stop the flow of sperm to the testicles by cutting both of the vas deferens (sperm tube). A small cut is made in the scrotum to locate the vas deferens. The ends of the vas deferens are then tied with sutures (internal non absorbable stitches).
Vasectomy is usually performed as a method of permanent male contraception.
