Having a vasectomy is no obstacle to getting a second chance at having a baby. Thanks for the experience microsurgeons at the Vasectomy Reversal Center of America (VRCA), countless couples are able to experience the joys of parenthood and conceive a baby naturally, even after a vasectomy.
Take Fred and Lori. When they married several years ago, it was a second marriage for both of them. Fred had two grown children from his first marriage and Lori hadn’t had children. They agreed that it would be wonderful to raise a child together.
However, since Fred had a vasectomy 20 years earlier, the couple doubted they could conceive a child naturally.
After visiting the Vasectomy Reversal Center of America and having a consultation, the couple knew that having a vasectomy reversal was an option, even 20 years after Fred's vasectomy.
"Because all of the surgeons at VRCA are fellowship-trained in microsurgical vasectomy reversal and male reproductive medicine, we offer patients who had a vasectomy five, 10 and even 20 years ago, a second chance at conceiving a child naturally," says Karen Boyle, M.D. "And, our success rates are over 90 percent. When it comes to performing a successful vasectomy reversal, what is critical is the skill and training of your surgeon."
Experience of the Surgeon Really Matters
"Many urologists will offer to perform a vasectomy reversal but are not adequately trained to do so," says David Fenig, M.D. "It is important for patients to speak to their prospective surgeon about their training and expertise prior to making a consultation appointment."
How can the surgeons at VRCA achieve such high success rates of more than 90%?
The answer is in their training and years of experience performing successful vasectomy reversals. At the Vasectomy Reversal Center of America, all three microsurgeons are part of an elite group of two percent of board-certified urologists in the U.S. who are fellowship-trained in male infertility and microsurgical techniques. Nationally, only 600 urologists have this specialty training; in the Mid-Atlantic region, there are less than a dozen of such trained urologic surgeons.
Helping More Couples Conceive, Naturally
The decision to have a vasectomy reversal is a monumental one which is why patients at the VRCA express their gratitude not just for being able to conceive a baby, but for the relationships formed along the way.

"It is essential to choose a microsurgeon who you not only feel will perform a successful surgery, but one who will be the kind of doctor who will care for you every step of this journey,” adds Brad Lerner, M.D.
