We have multiple clinics that are conveniently located in downtown Chicago, Oak Brook and Oakbrook Terrace. We perform No SNIP vasectomies.
The acronym No SNIP vasectomy stands for No Scalpel, No Needle, No Incision and No Pain. The vasectomy is performed with no scalpel technique. Anesthesia is administered without needle with a special pneumatic device. The surgery is performed in office.
Dr. Agha, who will perform your surgery, is a Board Certified Urologist and has been performing these procedures since 1996. He not only performs the vasectomies, but also specializes in vasectomy reversals.

On the day of your procedure, please have a light breakfast or light lunch. Have your scrotum shaved and take a bath with antiseptic (preferable) soap. Wear clean, tight and snug underwear. Do not take aspirin or other blood thinning products for 1 week before the procedure.
During the vasectomy, vas is delivered out through a small puncture hole, a piece of vas is cut and sent to pathologist, the two ends are blocked and cauterized. The procedure is done in 15 to 20 minutes.
After the procedure you may be able to drive home. You will be given a prescription for a short course of antibiotics and pain pills. In addition, two orders for semen analysis will be given to be performed at 2 months and 3 months after the vasectomy. It takes several weeks to be sperm free. You should continue to use your current methods of contraception till two semen analyses are negative for the presence of sperm.
