Vasectomy Reversal Costs

NCFMC is extremely proud to be able to offer a low global fee for vasectomy reversal and Vasoepididymostomy.

Vasovasostomy (Vasectomy Reversal)

The standard procedure for a vasectomy reversal, a vasovasostomy involves the reconnection of the vas deferens by cutting above and below the damaged segment and carefully stitching the two fresh ends back together. Dr. Generao uses an operative microscope and performs a “three-layer” connection. This technique requires significant surgical skill but results in an extremely precise and stable connection.

Vasectomy Reversal Costs

We are currently able to offer one global fee for vasovasostomy (vasectomy reversal) or if necessary vasoepididymostomy (correction of epididymal obstruction).

The total fee is $7,850.00

This global fee covers all aspects of the reversal including the “pre-op”, surgeon fees, facility fees and anesthesia fees. We will check semen samples after surgery for the presence of sperm cells. The global fee does not cover an option to freeze sperm cells during surgery.

Most of our patients find that their insurance company will not pay for the reversal. You may wish to submit a claim to your insurance company and we would be happy to assist you.

We are extremely proud that this global fee is much lower than comparable fees around the United States. Other programs offer this same arrangement for up to $25,000.00. Remember that this global fee will cover not only a bilateral vasectomy reversal but will also cover the more delicate correction of epididymal blockage if it is found. The $7,850.00 global fee is due no later than the day of surgery.

Post Operative Semen Analysis

  1. Make an appointment to see Dr. Generao. At your appointment you will be asked to collect a semen sample, and you will be able to look at the sample under a microscope. At this appointment we will only check for the presence of sperm; we will not calculate an exact sperm count or motility assessment. However, Dr. Generao’s clinic appointments are usually only in the morning and often only one or two days per week. This may not be convenient for you. For option #1 call 916 634-0406 and ask for a post-op appointment with Dr. Generao. There is no charge for this visit.
  2. Make an appointment to have the Northern California Fertility Medical Center (NCFMC) lab in Sacramento check your semen. There is a $160.00 charge for this service. Dr. Generao will call you to discuss the results within a few days. The advantage of this option is that you will have much more flexibility in scheduling your appointment. Also, the lab will provide an exact sperm count and motility assessment. In the future you may be advised you to schedule more detailed semen tests: full semen analysis ($225.00) or antisperm antibody test ($420.00).  For option #2 call 916-634-0406 and ask for a $160.00 post-op sperm check with the laboratory.
  3. Make an appointment with any laboratory in your area to have a full semen analysis. Costs vary for a full semen analysis, but an average cost is $225.00.
