You can get your vasectomy at Gentle Procedures Clinic in Fredericton at no cost to you.
We also offer optional uninsured services that you may wish to consider for an enhanced experience with your vasectomy procedure. Please read on to learn about the Premium Vasectomy Package available at our Fredericton clinic.
Premium Option – No-Needle, No-Scalpel Vasectomy
NB Health covers the basic costs of a vasectomy. You can have your vasectomy at no cost to you at our clinic.
You may also opt for our Premium Package for our no-scalpel, no-needle, single-puncture, minimally invasive, gentle touch vasectomy, which almost all of our patients choose for improved comfort and convenience for $199.
This is a one-time fee for a once-in-a-lifetime procedure.
The cost of other contraceptive methods, such as birth control pills or condoms etc. is significantly greater over time.
Premium Vasectomy Key Benefits
No-Needle Anaesthesia to reduce any anxiety about the use of a needle for the numbing of your scrotum.
All supplies that you will need before and after your vasectomy provided for you as your time is valuable. This saves you trips to the pharmacy.
All your follow up visits will be done by telephone. So, rather than having to come back to the office multiple times and dealing with the time lost from work, driving, parking, gas, etc., we will do all post-procedure follow-up by telephone, saving you all the inconvenience. This includes giving your semen test results by telephone. All this will save you several hours of your time.
For something that is so life-changing, we want to provide the most convenient and most comfortable way of getting the job done. We are not satisfied with the standard of care and strive to go beyond that, especially for something as important as getting a vasectomy. That is why we provide a Premium Package to address the biggest worries and greatest inconveniences our patients have while providing the highest quality care available.
No Needle in the Scrotum
First of all, men do not like needles or sharp objects of any sort down there! With Premium, we eliminate the need for a needle for freezing the scrotum by using a specialized spray applicator. This device uses air pressure to spray a fine stream of anesthetic (0.1 cc/injection) through the skin, freezing both the skin and vas deferens at the same time.
“With this method, there is less pain and patient anxiety which helps relax the scrotum. Relaxed scrotums require less tugging and pulling, and are easier to operate on, making the whole procedure quicker and more comfortable for the patient.”
Secondly, all the supplies that you need to purchase after your surgery are pre-bought, pre-packed and given to you the day of your surgery. This saves you the hassle of running around to different stores to buy them at retail price after your surgery, which you will otherwise need to do.
You come in, have your procedure, then head straight home to relax and ice your scrotum.
Follow-Ups by Phone
Thirdly, all your in-office follow up visits will be eliminated and done by telephone instead. We all live busy lives and it is especially challenging to make and keep appointments for things you are not thrilled to have done.
Rather than coming back to the office multiple times and having to deal with the time lost from work, driving, parking, gas, etc., our staff will conduct your follow ups as well as discuss your semen test results down the road by telephone instead.
$199 Cost for a Premium Service Vasectomy – It’s worth it.
The Premium fee enables us to provide this exceptional level of service and cover our costs, as NB Health only remunerates us for in-office visits and standard anaesthesia.
Most of our patients say “I am going to do this once in my life, I want to have the simplest, most convenient and most comfortable option available.” Our patients indicate to us that when they consider the fact that they are already saving from never needing to buy any form of contraception ever again the Premium package “just makes sense” as it is a one-time fee for a once-in-a-lifetime procedure.
Should you choose not to purchase the Premium Service option, you will need to come back to the office in person for the follow up visits, test results, etc. We will provide you with a list of the supplies you will need to purchase on your own and you will get the standard needle freezing of the scrotum.
