According to data from the National Study of Family Growth, vasectomy is utilized by 6-13% of American couples for their form of contraception. Physician surveys have shown that over 500,000 men undergo vasectomies per year, and more than 75% of vasectomies are performed by urologists. This chapter provides a brief history of vasectomy, as well as recommendations for preoperative counseling, an overview of the modified no-scalpel vasectomy technique, and a brief description of the complications of vasectomy.
