The Best Vasectomy Doc is Among the Most Affordable For Your Priceless Procedure
Most men have a few reservations when it comes to having a vasectomy even if they don’t readily admit it. It’s normal to have concerns; we’d be worried if you didn’t.
If you’re stepping up as the responsible party in your relationship(s) when it comes to birth control, you need to know that you’re in good hands. And, you don’t want to trade the birth control issue for a financial one by opting for a procedure that’s beyond your means.
Still Pondering Options?
Perhaps you and your partner have been pondering an IUD vs vasectomy? They’re both very effective forms of birth control with vasectomy coming in slightly ahead in reliability. A vasectomy only needs to be performed once, whereas, in a woman’s reproductive life, she will likely need to have her IUD replaced a few times. This results in huge chunks of not only money, but time spent with this less reliable form of birth control
Some women can’t tolerate an IUD at all, and others may develop complications from the implanted device. Birth control is both a personal and very individual choice. One size does not fit all, and there are multiple options available.
If you’ve all but decided to take the vasectomy plunge, but have questions, we have answers.
Cost and Confidence
How much does it cost for a vasectomy by the best urologist in north Austin? We offer some of the lowest out-of-pocket fees in Central Texas. For many of our patients with insurance, a minimal co-pay may be all that’s required to have this simple 15-minute procedure performed. But price is not everything…
Most of you are seeking the best urologist in Austin to perform your procedure. From Cedar Park or Round Rock, all the way to San Marcos and San Antonio, men have put their confidence in Austin Urology Institute. Dr. Shaw of Austin Urology has performed thousands of successful vasectomies. We’re proud to have garnered some of the top ratings on both Google and Yelp, not to mention being named one of the “Best Urologists in Austin” by Austin Monthly magazine.
You know by now that the cost is the same as that low-t center down the street whose doctor could have been an ER doctor. The search should be over by now, but we’ve got more evidence why Dr. Shaw is one of the best urologists in Austin.
If this were still the “Wild, Wild West”, you’d find that Dr. Shaw is known throughout the territory we now call Texas as one of the best urologists in these parts. He’s known by his patients and peers for vasectomies, as well as prostate cancer surgery, (and as a urological cancer surgeon) with a reputation that reaches across the state. He’s also highly skilled in robotic surgery called da Vinci surgery.
Like the most renowned gunslingers of all time, his reputation for precision and hitting his “target” make him one of the best surgeon “sheriffs” around. (His reputation for targeting tumors routinely runs cancer out of town).
Did we say precision? If it’s one thing you want in a vasectomy, it’s precision!
Day of Reckoning
You’re understandably nervous about the snip-snip down south of the border, and we get it. Once you’ve arrived at the pivotal decision to be un-reproductive, you’ll find that our caring staff, state of the art facilities and surgical techniques make a simple, but slightly daunting procedure, as comfortable as possible. (You might say that we make a vast difference in your vas deferens procedure). The mini-surgery will be over before you know it, and we’ll make certain you’re well informed about what to do and expect in your short recovery period.
For your comfort, we provide appropriate pain medications. (No need to gulp whiskey or bite the bullet). Vasectomy infection is extremely rare when after-care instructions are followed. We provide at-home sperm check kits at the time of your procedure. There’s no need to come back to the office or lab for testing. We even offer convenient Saturday appointments that make it easy to recover over the weekend and be back at work on Monday.
Once you’ve recovered, you’ll find yourself in brand new territory, free to pioneer intimate encounters with no fear of needing a bigger minivan as you blaze life’s trail.
