The Procedure

A vasectomy is a common procedure for men who are already parents or for those who have chosen not to have children, as having a vasectomy means you will not be able to father any more children.

The procedure is done as outpatient surgery and takes around 15-20 minutes using local anaesthetic. You will be free to go home and carry on with your life the same day you come in.

You will also need to continue to use protection for 8-12 weeks after the surgery because some sperm will remain in the vas deferens tubes after the operation but a vasectomy will not affect your sex drive, testosterone (male hormone) levels, or erections.

Weekly clinics are carried out by Mr Andrew Garnham and Mr Hans-Joerg Zief, both experienced surgeons with over 20 years in the NHS. Our clinics take place across the Midlands giving you the option of a vasectomy in Wolverhampton or a vasectomy in Shrewsbury.

About Us

The main reason men choose to come to a private provider like Summerfield Healthcare is so they can see a specialist sooner and have the procedure completed more quickly.

We are a multidisciplinary private health clinic with direct access to Private GP, Consultant-led services, health monitoring and minor surgery.

Going private for your vasectomy means you can arrange the procedure at a time convenient for you – and if you wish to discuss the procedure before your appointment we can also offer a consultation appointment with our surgeon.

Having a private vasectomy is a sensible route if you are looking for:

  • An effective and permanent form of contraception
  • A fast response time and an appointment that you don’t have to wait months for
  • Clinics at convenient times that suit a busy schedule
  • Private, discreet, and professional care
  • A procedure without any kind of referral

“After 5 years of running scared I finally took the plunge, and only wish I had 5 years ago. The surgeon was very calming and took good care of me. A week down the line and there is some mild discomfort but I’m on the mend. I’ve already recommended you to many friends. Brilliant service.”
