Urological sealing of vas deferens which prevents sperm from entering the final section of vas deferens through placement of titanium clips is currently one of the most effective (99.9%) birth control methods for men. The procedure is minimally-invasive (no scalpel) and reversible. There are no adverse effects on men’s sexual performance and health.
Vasectomy – life under control
No pain, no scalpel, no stitches. The microsurgery semi-open procedure is performed in Bydgoszcz by a urology specialist and surgeon, Wiesław Jaskulski M.D., in a private practice. The price of the procedure covers a testicular ultrasound, the procedure, post-operative care and a guarantee of effectiveness. Jaskólski M.D. co-operates with the Urology Clinic at the Ludwik Rydygier Collegium Medicum, and performs classic, endoscopic and minimally-invasive surgery based on the use of laser.
Vasectomy procedures are also performed in Toruń at Nowak&Nowak Private Specialist Health Centre (Prywatna Specjalistyczna Przychodnia Lekarska Nowak&Nowak) by a urologist and surgeon, Lech Nowak M.D. “From my observations I can tell that 60% of men that come to me are urged by their partners who are sick of birth control pills and do not tolerate them well”, he says to GazetaWyborcza.pl and adds: “I do not perform vasectomy on men who are less than 30 years old. I have established the limit because I think that only at such age men reach emotional maturity. 700,000 Americans undergo vasectomy every year. That number spoke to me.”
Vasectomy that you can pay for in instalments is offered at Family Planning Centre (Centrum Planowania Rodziny) in Wilanów where it is performed by a II degree specialist in gynaecology and obstetrics, Eugeniusz Siwik M.D., a co-author (alongside Lew Starowicz) of “Contraception. Family Planning at the verge of the 21st century.” (“Antykoncepcja. Planowanie rodziny u progu XXI w.”). He has dedicated his time to male birth control since 1994 and since 2003 he has been performing no-scalpel vasectomy. The procedures are available in partner clinics throughout the entire country.
All Medical.pl Medical Centre (Centrum Medyczne All Medical.pl) in Radomsko offers no-scalpel minimally-invasive birth control for men. The appointments and dates of procedures are arranged individually with a urology and uro-oncology specialist, palliative and emergency medicine specialist, Ryszard Tomalka, who has a DGQ-QM-Manager im Gesundheitswesen, Auditor ISO 9001:2000 certificate. The offer covers urological examination, kidney, bladder and prostate ultrasound, PSA level control and mandatory semen analysis after the procedure.
The two surgery methods: either tying vas deferens by piercing in and out a needle and slight separation of the layers (no-scalpel procedure) or cutting and sealing vas deferens, are used by a surgery specialist and urologist, Krzysztof Dąbrowski M.D. Ph.D., at the USG Private Urology Clinic (Prywatny Gabinet Urologiczny – USG) in Tomaszów Mazowiecki. A member of Sexual Medicine and Andrology Section of the Polish Association of Urology, dr Dąbrowski is currently the head of One-Day Urology Department and the Urology Clinic in Tomaszów Mazowiecki.
