Haven Health provides a day case vasectomy service for NHS patients from all over Suffolk.
We also offer a fully private (non-NHS) service. Procedures are usually performed on Fridays to limit the necessary time off work for patients.
The procedures are ALL performed by Dr Karol Silovsky - who uses a "non-scalpel technique". This is usually less uncomfortable post-operatively than the traditional method, but the most significant benefit is a much quicker recovery.
This technique is well established, and is available across the country, but currently Dr Silovsky is the only non-scalpel vasectomist available in Suffolk.
There is also a significantly lower risk of post-op complications such as:
In April 2007 The Journal of the American Medical Association compared the recovery and pain free times between conventional (10-14 days) and non-scalpel (3-4 days) vasectomy techniques.
This greatly shortened recovery time ensures that patients require less time off work and can be back to their normal activities very much faster.
Please contact our reception staff for more information about costs, referral procedures and waiting times.
We are happy to arrange a personal consultation with Dr Silovsky for any patient seeking vasectomy at Haven Health. After an initial consultation we can usually agree a date for the operation to be performed - allowing patients the ability to plan a date that suits their lifestyle.
