Dr. Raj’s Scalpel-Free Vasectomy Clinic is your destination for safe and effective vasectomy procedures in Australia.

  1. The first recorded vasectomy was performed by a German surgeon, Carl Ferdinand Von Graefe in 1823.
  2. The innovation behind no-scalpel vasectomies traces back to Dr. Li Shunqiang of China in the 1970s. His technique aimed to alleviate men’s concerns about permanent contraception and promote wider adoption of the procedure.
  3. Dr.Raj introduced the Scalpel Free Vasectomy technique to Australia in 2014. He established the first scalpel free vasectomy clinic in Mackay and then established clinics in Brisbane.
  4. The advent of scalpel free vasectomies has led to a noticeable shift, with more men opting for this procedure over tubal ligation. Countries such as Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, Spain, and South Korea have seen vasectomies surpass tubal ligation procedures.
  5. Scalpel-free vasectomies boast an effectiveness rate exceeding 99 percent, with an estimated failure rate of around one in 2,000 procedures.
  6. Unlike some contraceptive methods, vasectomies do not impact hormone production or influence sexual drive.
  7. Conducted in modern and friendly clinics, scalpel-free vasectomies are remarkably quick, often taking just less than 15 minutes to complete.
  8. The average length of the vas deferens tube is 30 – 45 cm and the procedure involves only a short segment of this long tube.
  9. Scalpel Free Vasectomy is usually done under a simple and effective local numbing agent.
  10. Complication rates for scalpel-free vasectomies are impressively low when compared to other traditional forms of vasectomy.

  14. World Vasectomy Day, celebrated on November 17th, was established in 2012 to encourage men to actively participate in reproductive decisions and solutions.
  15. While not easily reversible, it’s important for individuals to recognise that vasectomies should be approached as a permanent decision.
  16. Following a vasectomy, it’s recommended to continue using contraception for roughly three months until tests confirm the absence of sperm in ejaculate fluid.
  17. Vasectomies do not provide protection against sexually transmitted infections.
  18. Scalpel-free vasectomies alleviate the need for hormonal birth control, benefiting both partners and reducing potential risks.
  19. Patients who’ve undergone vasectomy procedures often report an increased sex drive due to reduced concerns about unintended pregnancy.
