June 08, 2023 at 16:50

Dr. Mark Hickman, MD, FACS, an expert vasectomy reversal surgeon in New Braunfels, TX, believes that reversing a vasectomy is the right decision for men. Being a Catholic, he believes in the Church’s teachings against artificial contraception, such as having a vasectomy. As a way to allow more men to reverse their vasectomy, which some men hesitate to undergo because of financial considerations, Dr. Hickman offers affordable options for vasectomy reversals in New Braunfels.

Dr. Hickman has two all-inclusive affordable options for a vasectomy reversal. The first option for a microsurgical vasectomy reversal is $3,300, which includes the use of an oral sedative and local anesthesia. The other option is priced at $4,200 and involves the provision of IV sedation that is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist. Since both options are all-inclusive, patients are assured there would be no surprises when it came time to pay the bill.

Dr. Hickman is also inviting out-of-town patients to visit New Braunfels, which happens to be a tourist town, and get the vasectomy reversal. He has made exclusive arrangements with local hotels, allowing his out-of-town patients to have their hotel accommodation rates reduced by as much as 50 percent. New Braunfels is frequented by tourists because of its picturesque rivers Comal River and Guadalupe River, allowing for a lot of rafting, fishing, tubing, and swimming. Schlitterbahn, which is the biggest water park in the country, offering a whole day of entertainment for both adults and kids, can also be found in New Braunfels. Also located near the practice of Dr. Hickman is the village of Gruene, which is a charming and old-fashioned town with several restaurants and more than 20 shops. Only 10 miles away are the Natural Bridge Caverns, which is a living cavern. Also easily accessible through I-35 is San Antonio, which offers several interesting places to visit, such as the Alamo, River Walk, Sea World of Texas, and Fiesta Texas - Six Flags.

The procedure used by Dr. Hickman involves the microsurgical repair of the vas deferens, which is the tube that links the testes to the urethra where the sperm is ejaculated from during the sex act. In a vasectomy, the vas is cut and sealed to prevent the sperm from getting to the egg for conception. In the vasectomy reversal procedure, Dr. Hickman looks for the ends of the vas and frees them from the scar tissue. He then joins the ends together, ensuring a watertight closure, using fine nylon suture.

Before joining the ends together, Dr. Hickman will first take a sample fluid from the testicular end of the vas deferens. He will examine the fluid under the microscope to check for the presence of sperm. If there is no sperm in the fluid, this means that there is an obstruction that is preventing the sperm from getting through. This is known as an epididymal blowout, which means Dr. Hickman will need to perform a vasoepididymostomy in addition to the vasovasostomy, but the patient need not worry because there will be no additional charge.

Established in 1988 by Dr. Mark Hickman, the practice known as Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals by Dr. Mark Hickman features Dr. Hickman’s pioneering methods for minimally invasive surgery. He finished his general surgery residency training at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where he came to know about the microsurgery techniques used in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He quickly observed how microsurgery would be able to offer a much better experience for his patients. Thus, he decided to focus on applying microsurgery for his practice that offers vasectomy reversals. He has already finished thousands of successful vasectomy reversals, and he hopes to keep continuing his vasectomy reversal ministries to help more men regain their ability to father a child.
