Vasectomy Reversal

There are no clear statistics but it depends on 1/ how the ini tial vasectomy was performed, 2/if the male is still producing quality sperm in significant quantity and quality and 3/the experience of the operating surgeon performing the procedure. Speak to your family doctor. He or she may know of experienced urologists in your area.
