• What to Expect When You Seek Out-of-Town Medical Care

    Distance from one’s home is often a key consideration when it’s time to choose a primary care physician. But as skillful as primary care doctors are, you’ll need to go to a specialist when undergoing a procedure as complex as a vasectomy reversal. It’s crucial to choose a vasectomy reversal surgeon who is highly skilled and has extensive experience with vasectomy reversals. This may mean traveling out of town for medical care .

    Pre-Operative Consultations

    When distance is not an issue, patients will typically meet vasectomy reversal surgeons at their offices for pre-operative consultations. However, it is possible to take care of these necessities over the phone or via email. You may be asked to mail medical forms. If you must obtain medical clearance before having a vasectomy reversal, you can see your primary care physician for the exam. You can also have your primary care physician handle any pre-operative medical tests or lab work. He or she can send the results to the vasectomy reversal surgeon.

    Travel Arrangements

    Depending on the distance you must travel, you may need to get to your destination the day before your procedure. When making your travel arrangements, bear in mind that you will not be able to drive for 48 hours after the surgery. If you plan to travel by airplane, you should ask the vasectomy reversal surgeon when it will be safe for you to fly after the procedure.


    Book your accommodations well in advance, particularly if you’re traveling to a resort community. You’ll probably want to ensure that you’ll have a comfortable hotel room in which to relax before and after your surgery. You should plan to stay in the area for at least night one after your surgery, since you’ll have a follow-up exam the next day.
