WHAT DOES VASECTOMY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization and/or permanent birth control. During the procedure, the male vasa deferentia are severed and then tied/sealed in a manner so as to prevent sperm from entering into the seminal stream and thereby prevent fertilization from occurring. Vasectomies are usually performed in a physician's office, medical clinic, or, when performed on an animal, in a veterinary clinic— hospitalization is not normally required as the procedure is not complicated, the incisions small, and the necessary equipment routine. There are several methods by which a surgeon might complete a vasectomy procedure, all of which occlude at least one side of each vas deferens. To help reduce anxiety and increase patient comfort, men who have an aversion to needles may consider a "no-needle" application of anesthesia while the "no-scalpel" or "open-ended" techniques help to speed-up recovery times and increase the chance of healthy recovery. Due to the simplicity of the surgery, a vasectomy usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete. After a short recovery at the doctor's office, the patient is sent home to rest.

Definition of vasectomy in the English dictionary

The definition of vasectomy in the dictionary is surgical removal of all or part of the vas deferens, esp as a method of contraception.
