SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vasectomy Clinic of San Diego has introduced Nitrous Oxide sedation to its already minimally invasive No Needle No Scalpel Vasectomy technique. This is the first time Nitrous Oxide or Laughing gas has been used with this anxiety provoking surgical procedure. The outcomes and acceptance are greatly improved by the simple introduction of this widely used and proven anesthetic.
Nitrous oxide is a non-allergenic, non irritating gas that affects the central nervous system. It’s one of the safest forms of sedation available and patients who have used it report very few, if any, side effects. The effects of nitrous oxide start to take effect within minutes. Following treatment the effects of this gas are completely reversed within minutes, simply by breathing normally. The short acting nature of this anesthetic allows the patient to be able to drive himself home right after the procedure.
Vasectomy is a surgical procedure to produce permanent sterility in men. The procedure is performed by severing the small ducts or conduits that transport sperm from the testicles to the penis called vas deferens. After the procedure, semen and sex drive are not affected.
No Needle No Scalpel Vasectomy
In No Needle No Scalpel Vasectomy, a spray injector is used to deliver anesthesia to numb the area, in addition to the Nitrous Oxide. A special device to spread the tissue is used, eliminating the scalpel, this new technique reduces even further the low complication rate of conventional vasectomy.
Vasectomy Clinic of San Diego, CA, was founded in 2012 by Dr Edward Ferrer. No other clinic in Southern California exclusively provides this highly specialized procedure and now with Nitrous Oxide sedation. For more information go to www.vasectomyclinicsandiego.com.
