There are fewer contraception options available to men than women, and none that are as effective as a vasectomy, or male sterilization.

How would you prefer to be contacted?

Just to reassure you, we will not share your details with anyone outside of The Westbourne Centre.

At The Westbourne Centre a vasectomy is performed in our state-of-the-art operating theatre, using local anaesthetic with sedation. The procedure involves cutting both of the tubes (vas deferens) that carry sperm from the testicles. This prevents sperm from mixing with semen and reaching the penis.

The benefit of having your private vasectomy at The Westbourne Centre is with the local anaesthetic you’ll only be with us for a few hours, and will be able to recouperate in the comfort of your own home.

A vasectomy is meant to be a permanent solution to preventing pregnancy.

For answers to the most common questions asked by men and women about vasectomy, please read Vasectomy Q&A with Consultant Surgeon Harmeet Khaira.
