Vasectomy Reversal Success Track Record Highlights Dr. Mark Hickman’s Skill as Microsurgical Surgeon

Dr. Mark Hickman, MD, FACS, a microsurgeon in New Braunfels, TX, takes pride in his thousands of successful vasectomy reversals throughout his 26 year career. Dr. Hickman offers two all-inclusive options for the procedure. The first option is priced at $3,300 and includes the use of an oral sedative and local anesthesia. The second all-inclusive alternative is priced at $4,200 and this includes IV sedation administered by a board certified anesthesiologist. Both options are all-inclusive, which means there are no hidden fees.

Dr. Mark Hickman says, “For those who are asking, ‘Is it possible to reverse a vasectomy?’ I can confidently answer in the affirmative I will perform a microsurgical repair of the vas deferens with a powerful operating microscope and fine nylon suture (much finer than a human hair). The goal is to create direct and careful alignment of the lumen of the two ends of the vas and a watertight closure for a higher success rate.”

Dr. Hickman will make a small incision (approximately half an inch) on both sides of the scrotal skin and then search for the two ends of the vas deferens by using a laparoscope, which is a small flexible tube with a tiny video camera at one end to allow the microsurgeon to see what he is working on. The incision required when using traditional surgery methods would be six to 12 inches long. Laparoscopic surgery allows for smaller incisions, allowing the surgery procedure to be less invasive, with the result that there is less pain, smaller scars, and quicker healing for the patient.

To ensure that the procedure for reversing a vasectomy will have a high possibility of success, before joining the two ends of the vas together, he will first obtain a sample fluid from the testicular end of the vas and examine this carefully under a microscope. He will be looking for the presence of whole sperm or even sperm parts. The absence of these may be indicative of an obstruction of the vas deferens at two levels: first, at the site of the vasectomy and second, by a rupture of the vas in the epididymis. This means that in addition to performing a vasovasostomy, Dr. Hickman will also need to conduct a vasoepididymostomy. The vasoepididymostomy will require a microscopic invagination of the epididymal tube into the lumen of the va using 10-0 nylon sutures. Fortunately for the patient, there will be no additional cost even if both repairs have to be done.

Meanwhile, Dr. Hickman is encouraging patients from other places in Texas, including those from other states, to come to New Braunfels for the procedure. He has negotiated some exclusive travel deals with the local hotels in New Braunfels to provide out-of-town patients to get as much as a 50 percent discount on their hotel accommodations. He also wants to highlight the fact that New Braunfels is a tourist town and it is visited by a large number of tourists. It has two of the most beautiful rivers, particularly the Comal River and the Guadalupe River, which offer a lot of fishing, tubing, rafting, and swimming in the area. Also found in New Braunfels is Schlitterban, which is the country’s biggest water park, which provides a whole day of entertainment for kids of all ages.

Established in 1988, Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals by Dr. Mark Hickman leverages his pioneering microsurgical and minimally invasive techniques for vasectomy reversal. It was during his general surgery residence training at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio that Dr. Hickman came to know about the microsurgery techniques that were then being applied in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Realizing the many benefits that microsurgery can offer for his patients, he decided to employ the microsurgery techniques for his vasectomy reversal practice. He even designed a number of surgical instruments for the minimally invasive approach.
