Why are there two options?
Video discussing the two different packages (Standard vs VV only) including the reasons for differences in pricing and when each option is appropriate.
How are our prices so low?
Video discussing how we were able to lower the prices to be several thousand lower than other vasectomy reversal surgeons and practices. This is consistently one of the most common questions that we receive.
Why Is it Important to Include Epididymovasostomy as an Option?
Video demonstrating how a vasectomy reversal is performed, including the intra-operative decision making on whether a vasovasostomy or epididymovasostomy will need to be performed. This video highlights why better success rates are seen with the Standard option and why it is important to assure that your vasectomy reversal surgeon is able to perform an epididymovasostomy.
FAQs - Pricing and Scheduling
The most common question we get is why the prices of the procedures are so low. The typical price for a vasectomy reversal that includes a possible epididymovasostomy most often ranges from $5,000-30,000. However, we have set the price much lower. For more information as to how / why we have elected to lower the prices so significantly, click here.
Unfortunately, no. The main reason is because with the Standard surgery, we block a larger amount of surgical time, in case it is needed to do the complex repair. Because of that, we are not able to fill that space with other surgical procedures. Complex repairs are needed in approximately 30% of cases, and it is not possible to fully predict who will need a complex repair.
Unfortunately, we are not able to 'upgrade' the procedure on the day of surgery. The main reason for this is because the Standard repair blocks a larger amount of time than the VV only repair. Since the remaining time will have been blocked for other procedures / visits on the day of surgery, it is not possible to upgrade last minute.
CareCredit is a resource where you may sign up for financing online. This allows you to pay for the vasectomy reversal over the next 6 months with no interest financing. After 6-months, interest rates apply based on CareCredit's model. For more information, visit CareCredit's website. If you elect to use CareCredit, you will need to contact our office to schedule the surgery.
This was a tough decision for us to make. We either had to require the full amount up front, or increase the prices. Whenever payment plans or up front deposits are used, this results in a percentage of patients not showing up for surgery. It also requires hiring more staff to manage the billing side of things. This leads to increased prices. So, when we had to make the decision, we felt that people would ultimately prefer to pay less rather than to have the option of paying over an extended period of time.
The following policy is one reason we are able to offer the reversals for such a low rate. As >90% of our patients fly in from other states or countries, cancelling surgery within 14 days allows us to fill cancelled slots with other potential patients and keeps overall costs low.
- Surgery must be cancelled at least 2 weeks before the surgery date to qualify for a full refund.
- If surgery is cancelled within 2 weeks of the surgery date, 50% of the surgery price will be withheld. If the slot is successfully filled, the 50% will also be refunded.
- If surgery is cancelled within 1 business day of the reversal, the full price of surgery will be withheld and no refund issued.
- Patients who cancel a 2nd time within 2 weeks will forfeit the full price of surgery with the 2nd and any subsequent surgeries which are cancelled within the 2-week window.
Short answer - yes. Longer answer - Dr. Landon Trost and Joshua Savage served as the only male fertility specialists and vasectomy reversal surgeons for the entire Mayo Clinic (including Rochester, Arizona, Florida, and the numerous hospital health system) and taught residents and fellows how to perform the procedure. Although they loved working at Mayo (and would have never wanted to leave), due to desires of their family members, they elected to move to Utah to open a practice specializing in male infertility and Peyronie's Disease (what they had specialized in at Mayo). In other words, the same team who was performing these surgeries at the Mayo Clinic previously is the one performing them at the Male Fertility and Peyronie's Clinic. They have among the highest reported published outcomes for vasectomy reversals in the scientific literature and have published techniques to help other surgeons improve outcomes.
Although you can fly home the day of the procedure, it may be challenging to time the flight just right. Typical surgical openings are at 8 AM and 12:30 PM. The morning surgery typically finishes around 11-12:30, while the afternoon one finishes around 4-5 PM. The SLC airport is about 45 minutes from the clinic. Whether you leave the same day or the following day after surgery, this will not impact your outcomes. We use a local numbing medicine that helps with the pain for about 24-36 hours, so, in some ways, it may be better to leave sooner while the medicine is still effective.
Yes; there are several within 5 minutes of the clinic. Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott is probably the most commonly used one (901 1200 W, Orem, UT 84057 - estimated $149/night), although TownePlace Suites by Marriott 873 1200 W, Orem, UT - $159/night) and La Quinta Inn and Suites by Wyndham (1100 W 780 N, Orem, UT - $75/night) are also common hotels.
Although this is preferred, it is not required. However, if you do not have a driver with you, you will need to stay in a hotel close by and cannot drive for the remainder of the day of the surgery.
