Call our office and we will provide you with detailed pricing (which by the way is partly covered by medicare and/or private insurance) or visit our locations page for details on pricing in your area.

No. Vasectomy does not impact hormones or performance in any way.
When can I go back to work, or when can I resume exercise?
All people heal differently. Many of our patients have their procedure near the weekend and go back to work on Monday, even if they have strenuous jobs. We can advise you on your specific requirements.
