Weekend Vasectomy Clinics
To better serve our patients, we now offer a convenient “one stop” vasectomy clinic at Canyon Park on select weekends. During the clinic, patients have both a consultation with a urologist and the procedure, all on a Saturday morning. By condensing the process, this service saves patients time and makes the procedure easier to approach.
Vasectomy, a surgical procedure that provides permanent birth control for men, is safe and effective and has a quick recovery period. "From my perspective, a vasectomy is the best solution for permanent birth control," says PacMed urologist Dr. Michael Han. "It’s much less invasive and much less dangerous than sterilization techniques for women."
Dr. Han uses a no-scalpel technique, which decreases the size of the incision and takes just 20 minutes. "Most patients are pleasantly surprised by how little pain was involved," adds Dr. Han.
In time, based on patient demand, we plan to expand this weekend vasectomy service to other clinics, such as Renton and Northgate.
