Thank you for inquiring about a vasectomy.
This is an important decision that should only be considered if you are ready for a permanent form of birth control. To help you make an informed decision I recommend that you speak to your family physician and browse this web site. This service is covered by Alberta Health Care.
Should you decide to use our services, I will introduce myself during a separate visit prior to the procedure to ask a few pertinent health questions and to offer explanations to all your questions. Subsequently I will obtain informed consent from you and once you are ready to proceed there is virtually no wait times for scheduling your surgery.
The day after your procedure I will phone you at home to make sure you are comfortable and give you the opportunity to ask more questions. I am also happy to return your phone calls after wards. Should any follow up be required after the procedure you may simply walk into my office and I will see you immediately.
My objective is to provide you with personal, speedy and effective care.
I look forward to your visit.
