Hey Guys - Like Basketball? Here's a win-win...

From Dr. Jonathan Rippentrop, Crossing Rivers Health Center for Specialty Care Urologist


If you have been considering a vasectomy and enjoy basketball, March may be the perfect time to schedule your appointment.

A vasectomy is a quick in-office procedure that will have you back in your recliner, same-day, for recovery- just in time to watch the big basketball tournament. We recommend resting a day or two after the procedure and you should be completely recovered within a week.

The only change a vasectomy should make in a man’s life is that he will no longer be fertile. You shouldn't notice any difference in your sex drive or your sexual performance. And having a vasectomy won't change any of your male traits, such as your ability to grow facial hair or your voice.

The operation is safe, easy and effective, but it's also permanent. There's no guaranteed way to reverse the operation.

Vasectomy procedures can be scheduled easily, without a provider’s referral.
