Dear Visitor,
Thank you for visiting the Vasectomy Reversal Center of Chicago and for your interest in our practice. The following information will answer most of the commonly asked questions related to vasectomy reversal.

About Us

Our center at 600 Enterprise Drive, Suite 218, Oak Brook IL 60523, is conveniently located about 15 minutes from O'Hare and about 20 minutes from downtown Chicago. Dr. Agha, who will perform your surgery, is a Board-Certified Urologist and has been performing these procedures since 1996. We perform 1-2 reversals per week on average.

The Surgery

The surgery is performed in our office operating room under local anesthesia. We use a high-end Leica operating microscope to perform this microsurgery

The surgery takes approximately 3 hours. After the surgery, you may ride in a car with someone. You may want to take a week off from work. You are advised against strenuous and sexual activity for about 3 weeks after surgery. Dr. Agha will prescribe antibiotics and pain pills for the post-operative period. Also, you will be given an order for semen analysis to be performed at your local hospital or fertility clinic. The results of the semen test can be discussed on the phone or zoom.

Chances of Success

If sperm are detected during the surgery, our success rate is more than 99%. The chances that sperm are found during surgery vary with time since vasectomy (90% between 1-3 years, 80-85% between 4-7 years, and 70-75% between 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, the following will ensue.
Consultation: Dr. 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.
Prior to consultation, you will receive a link to fill in the registration form.
A $250.00 fee is charged for consultation. This fee is applied to the total cost of the procedure if the reversal surgery is scheduled and performed with us within 6 months of consultation. This fee is not refundable after the service has been provided.
Scheduling the Procedure: After the consultation, at your convenience, you can call or email us to schedule your procedure. Our reversal coordinator will facilitate the process.

Cost of Reversal

The all-inclusive cost for the procedure is $7,400.00. 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 all credit card transactions.


If after scheduling the procedure, you change your mind, the full fee is refundable until 2 weeks before the scheduled date. If you cancel less than 2 weeks before the scheduled date, the deposit of $500 becomes non-refundable. If you cancel less than 48 hours before surgery, the full fee is non-refundable.

We understand that some questions may not have been answered here. If so, please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-92-VASMD and our reversal coordinator will be glad to assist you.

You will feel mild discomfort from the needleless local anesthesia. It is analogous to being hit by a rubber band. The rest of the procedure is completely pain free.

After the procedure you may be able to drive home (a ride is desirable). You will be given a prescription for a short course of antibiotics and pain pills. In addition, an order for semen analysis will be given. The semen analysis is performed 3 months after the vasectomy. It takes several weeks to be sperm free. You should continue to use your current methods of contraception till two semen analysis shows no sperm.


You should take it easy, and not lift or strain for the first 48 hours. After that you can resume most of your routine activities except heavy lifting and sexual activity for one week or till your pain-free, whichever is later.

The specimen can be carried in your pocket or a brown bag. The specimen must be examined by the lab within 1 hour. Call the lab for directions on specimen collection before taking in the specimen.
