No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV)

No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV)

No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) is a simple surgical procedure conducted for permanent sterilization for men. It is the most popular form of surgical birth control for men, developed by Dr Shunqiang Li in China. Later, introduced by the United States as an innovative approach to exposing the vas deferens using two specialized surgical instruments. Today, numerous urologists and surgeons around the world are trained and specialize in this surgery. It is safe, effective, and easy to perform the method of contraception.

This surgery only stops the delivery of sperm but does not block hormonal function. Thus sexual drive and potency of the person do not get affected.


In the 48 hours before having a no-scalpel vasectomy, your doctor may ask you to avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to dodge the chances of bleeding complications. Other things to be considered while preparing for the surgery include shaving scrotum and cleaning the area with soap and water. Three hours before, the patient should not eat or drink.


The doctor performs No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSVT) after administering local anaesthesia. During a No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV), no incisions are made. Instead, a surgeon uses a needlelike tool to poke one small hole in the scrotum. Then a surgeon pulls vas deferens through the holes and cut. After the surgery, the cut is sealed with stitches, clips, a mild electrical pulse, or by tying their ends off. The whole procedure only takes about 20 – 30 minutes.

There is no risk involved in No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV), and as compared to conventional vasectomy, there is no trauma involved in it. There is no post-operative pain or complications. Therefore, it is an elegant option of contraception.


Since No-Scalpel Vasectomy is a very safe procedure, the risk of complications is low. Similar to other surgeries, infection and bleeding are the main risks involved in No-Scalpel Vasectomy, but they are generally low for this surgery. The patient may experience discomfort that usually gets better with time and conservative measures.


There is no change in the person except that his sperm code is blocked. Testes continue to produce sperm, but it gets absorbed by the body. Level of the hormone, sexual drive and sexual characteristics remain the same.

A no-scalpel vasectomy can be an effective and safe form of long-term birth control. When performed by surgeons with experience, Uro Clinic Care has some of the most experienced urology surgeons in Indore that specializes in no-scalpel vasectomy and has performed many successful surgeries.
