Success Rates

Metrocentre is one of the very few clinics worldwide to use the advanced Owen Three-Layer Closure technique

Dr Lekich uses the advanced Owen Three-Layer Close technique, pioneered and perfected by Professor Owen since 1971, in his specially designed facility located on the Gold Coast. This technique has been used in over 6000 procedures, and draws on over 40 years of microsurgical research and experience. Our procedure has been optimised to reach the very highest success rates.

Our highly experienced team has successfully reversed vasectomies performed anywhere from a single to 34 years ago.

Following over 50 years of pioneered and perfected microsurgery, by Professor Earl Owen, the published success rates of the Owen Three-Layer Vasectomy Reversals are as follows:

Years since vasectomy:

Success Rate:

0-5 years 80-90%
6-10 years 70-80%
11-15 years 65-75%
16-20 years 50-65%

It is this technique that Professor Owen trained Dr Lekich at the microscope for almost 4 years and retired his practice to Dr Lekich after this comprehensive training program.  He continued to work with Dr Lekich for 10 years.

 Several factors can influence the success of this reversal procedure, and these include:

  • The time between the original vasectomy and the reversal procedure
  • The technique employed for the original vasectomy
  • The precision, experience, skill and equipment your chosen team employs
