Vasectomy refers to a sterilization procedure for males. The procedure involves cutting and tying both vas deferentia.

At Pioneer Health, we are pleased to be able to offer patients a vasectomy service performed by either Dr David Tadj or Dr Jolmer Smit.

We can offer a vasectomy performed under local or general anaesthetic:

The local anaesthetic (LA) procedure

  • current wait time is a few weeks
  • a scalpel-free vasectomy
  • in a treatment room at Pioneer Health
  • using local anaesthetic. 

The general anaesthetic (GA) procedure

  • current wait time is 9-12 months
  • a scalpel-free vasectomy
  • at Albany Health Campus
  • using general anaesthetic. 

Before you book an appointment, please print off the below pre-operative information sheet. This will answer many of your questions before you come to see Dr Tadj or Dr Smit. Please sign it and bring it with you to the appointment. 

A detailed patient instruction sheet  for post vasectomy care can also be found below and should be read prior to the appointment.

If you have any questions, or to book an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact the practice on 9842 2822. Remember to mention that your appointment is regarding a vasectomy, to ensure we book you in appropriately.
