I believe that medicine and surgery should be practiced the old-fashioned way by giving personal, individualized attention to each couple and spending as much time as needed educating you as patients as to all the possible options, procedures, alternatives and risks regarding vasectomy reversals and other methods of conception. While we perform a high volume of vasectomy reversals every year, we are not running a mill and will only schedule one reversal a day so you are my sole focus and will get my complete attention. I personally perform your surgery and place every suture myself. I have no interest in using your surgery to train resident physicians, junior partners, or passing your care off to a less experienced associate because I am too busy. All my patients receive both my home and cellular phone numbers after surgery so you can reach me anytime. I will personally call you and check on your recovery after the surgery.
