There are 2 types of vasectomy reversal: vasovasostomy and vasoepididymostomy. Patients are subjected to spinal or general anesthesia to ensure no movement during the surgery. The procedure involves making a small cut on the underside of the scrotum exposing the vas deferens and releasing it from surrounding tissues. Then, the vas deferens is cut open and the interior fluids are examined. If sperm is present in the fluid, the ends of the vas deferens are connected to re-create the pathway for sperm flow (vasovasostomy). If the interior fluid is thick or doesn't contain sperm, the vas deferens is connected to the epididymis (vasoepididymostomy).
