Fibrin Glue Vasectomy Reversal® Patient Guide
Baylor Scott & White – Temple uses fibrin glue during the reversal, which reduces operative time and the number of required sutures. Because the procedure requires less time in the operating room, it is considerably less expensive than traditional microsurgery. This surgery is offered only at the Temple location.
To schedule an appointment, the patient’s full name, date of birth, social security number, address, two contact phone numbers, occupation and marital status must be provided. Patients will also be asked when their vasectomy procedure was performed. We will also need to have a credit card to hold on file for the cancellation/rescheduling fee mentioned in the payment section below.
Option #1: Come in for a consultation visit and schedule the surgery at a later date. The cost for the surgery will need to be paid at the time of check-in for the appointment. If the patient decides to schedule the surgery for later, the fee will be deducted from the amount of the surgery since it has already been paid.
Option #2: Select a surgery date and come in the afternoon before for the preoperative appointments. There are three mandatory preoperative appointments that the patient will need to attend prior to the procedure.
- Discussing the procedure and sign the consents
- Business office to make the full payment
- Anesthesia/day surgery assessment
Patients who are over 50 or have other health problems such as heart disease, lung disease, high blood pressure or diabetes will need to come with a note of clearance from their primary care provider. Patients must be off aspirin, ibuprofen or any blood thinners 10 days before their procedure.
If the patient wants to save sperm (cryopreservation), he will also need to meet with the andrology department. If sperm cryopreservation is desired, the patient must inform Baylor Scott & White prior to the procedure so it can be added to his schedule. Additional fees apply.
For all questions regarding payment, please contact the office at 254.724.6935 or 1.800.792.3710, extension 6935. This office handles all of the payments for the procedure. Payment must be made in full before the procedure can be performed.
A cancellation fee will be billed to the patient if a scheduled procedure is canceled without rescheduling, canceled or rescheduled within 10 days of the scheduled procedure, or if a patient does not show for the scheduled preoperative appointments and/or procedure.
