Vasectomy Melbourne

So you’re interested in a vasectomy… either because you’ve decided that kids are not for you, enough is enough, or maybe because of a suggestion by your partner. But where do you begin? How do you make this already slightly awkward and scary journey easier on you and your body? Well, here at Metrocentre, we know how important it is to find a team you trust, and a surgeon whose skills you would bet on. Our primary surgeon, Dr Chris Lekich, has over 15 years of experience in microsurgery and was trained by renowned microsurgeon, Dr Earl Owen.

Vasectomy Reversal Melbourne

Vasectomy reversal requires more time and surgical prowess to complete successfully. The hair-thin vas tubes have to be reconnected so that sperm can once again travel. This intricate procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours, with our microsurgically trained surgeon Dr Chris Lekich. Our vasectomy reversals are completed using the Owen 3-Layer Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal technique. This technique was developed by one of the leading microsurgeons in the world, who also happened to be Dr Lekich’s mentor for many years.

Why choose Metrocentre?

Your first visit and our process

When you first visit us for either a reversal or vasectomy we will commence a thorough assessment of your vas tubes using an ultrasound device. This is a very important part of the planning stage that needs to be completed in order to increase your chance of procedure success.

What is this ‘Owen 3 Layer Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversal technique’

This is a procedure created by Dr Earl Owen, which is now practiced at Metrocentre by Dr Chris Lekich. In order to complete the procedure, a high power Zeiss microscope will be used, and the three separate layers of the vas tube will be reconnected. The accurate reconnection of this tube and its layers will reduce risk of scarring as well as improve your chances of a successful reversal.

The Metrocentre Difference

We focus our efforts into delivering precision and successful procedures, while also providing world class care. We have some of the most advanced technology available, including state of the art ultrasound equipment as well as a Zeiss surgical microscope.

A relaxing atmosphere

We understand that this procedure may be a little stressful for some patients, after all it can be a big decision to no longer want children, or to choose to reverse a vasectomy. For this reason each of our staff members, including Dr Chris Lekich are friendly, and get to know the patient before the procedure.
