Introduction: The Purpose of This Book
This book is a review of my own thought processes and step-by-step surgical techniques, tips, tricks, and pearls that I use every day to perform a vasovasostomy or a vasoepididymostomy. This is a working doctor’s hands-on manual based on a career of real-world, practical lessons learned with thousands of reversals. The intent of this book is to provide a number of ideas or points that you may find useful and so will incorporate into your own reversal techniques to improve your outcomes for your patients. This book includes the rationale behind intraoperative decision-making as well as how I handle common and uncommon challenges and dilemmas before, during, and after vasectomy reversals.
