Thank you for visiting the Vasectomy Reversal Center of Chicago and interest in our practice. The following will answer most of the commonly asked questions related to a vasectomy reversal.
Our primary consultation office is conveniently located at 600 Enterprise Drive, Suite 218, Oak Brook IL 60523, about 15 minutes from O’Hare and about 20-minute s from Chicago downtown. We perform 1-2 reversals per week on average. Dr. Agha, who will perform your surgery is a Board-Certified Urologist and has been performing these procedures since 1996. The surgery is performed at the Oak Brook Surgical Centre Inc. 2425 West 22nd Street, Suite 101, Oak Brook, IL 60523). We perform vasectomy reversal under local anesthesia with oral sedation. A high-end Leica operating microscope is used for microsurgery.
Chances of Success:
If sperms are found coming out of the testicular end of the vas during surgery, our success rate is more than 95%. The chances that sperm will be discovered during surgery vary with time since vasectomy (90 % 1-3 years, 80-85% 4-7 years, and 70-75% 8-14 years). Pregnancy rates are lower than these numbers as a host of male and female factors come into play even when sperms are present in the semen after the reversal.
How to Proceed:
Once you have decided to have a reversal, please follow the following steps:
- Download Documents at https://vasmd.com/Documents/Complete-Package-VRCC.pdf. Fill the first 4 pages and email those to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or send them by mail to our office at 600 Enterprise Drive, Suite 218, Oak Brook IL 60523.
- Consultation: Agha will offer a phone or Zoom consultation on request for any unanswered questions. Those who wish to have an office consultation are also welcome. A $150.00 consultation fee is charged but is applied to the total cost of the procedure fee if surgery is later scheduled and performed with us within 6 months.
- Scheduling: Once the paperwork is received in our office, all questions answered, our reversal coordinator will facilitate scheduling.
The surgery is performed at the Oak Brook Surgical Center at 2425 West 22nd Street (Cermak Rd.), Suite 101, Oak Brook IL, 60523.
The surgery takes approximately 3 hours. After the surgery, you may ride a car with someone. You may like to take a week off from work. No strenuous and sexual activity is advised for 3 weeks. Dr. Agha will prescribe antibiotics and pain pills for the post-operative period. Also, an order for semen analysis will be given to you that you can have performed at your local hospital. The results of the semen test can be discussed on the phone or zoom.
Cost of Reversal:
The all-inclusive cost for the procedure is $6900.00 (surgeon fee as well as facility fee). A deposit of $500.00 is required at the time of scheduling and the balance is due 2 weeks before the surgery in the form of a Certified check payable to Arif Agha, MD. A 3% convenience fee is applicable for the credit card transaction.
The full fee is refundable if surgery is canceled 2 weeks before the scheduled date. If the surgery is canceled less than 2 weeks before surgery, the deposit of $500 becomes non-refundable. If surgery is canceled less than 48 hours before surgery, the full fee is non-refundable.
