No-Scalpel Vasectomy Trends in Toowoomba & QLD
In recent years Vasectomy has experienced a steady growth in its popularity among Toowoomba and Queensland men seeking permanent contraception. This trend suggests that more and more people are recognising the overall convenience, safety and reliability of this procedure.
Many families choose Vasectomy as their family planning method because it is truly a “set it and forget it” method – and importantly – carries a significantly lower risk than tubal ligation for women.
Now, with the introduction of the No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) and open-ended technique, this procedure has become even more simple and comfortable.
The cost is also quite favourable compared to other contraceptive methods – given that it is a one-time expenditure, paid in part by Medicare.
Toowoomba area men can have a vasectomy consultation and procedure in a single clinic visit, often within days of calling for an appointment.
No-Scalpel Vasectomy in Australia – The History
No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) was developed in China in 1974 by Dr. Li Shunqiang. By 1985, an international team made up of members from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Access to Voluntary and Safe Contraception (AVSC), formerly the Association for Voluntary Surgical Contraception, were visiting China to study alternative vasectomy procedures, including NSV.
Later after careful observation and review of the NSV procedure, it was decided to introduce the technique to Australia, where standard vasectomy was already very well established as a contraceptive method.
Since then, hundreds of thousands of no-scalpel vasectomies have been performed in Australia, and nearly 20,000,000 in China, and the numbers around the world are growing.
Our Toowoomba vasectomy clinic uses this advanced method and Gentle Procedures Clinics have been performing scalpel-free vasectomies with great success for many years.
