A vasectomy reversal can be the most cost effective way to have a child after a vasectomy.
A vasectomy reversal is a complex microscopic surgery where the surgeon recconects the vas deferens together (vasovasostomy, most common), or attaches the vas deferens to the epididymis (Vasoepididymostomy, more complex) to restore fertility. The type of surgery performed is determined during the procedure.
With his fellowship training in microscopic surgery, Dr. Stewart Landau is considered the premier urologist specializing in vasectomy reversals, in Utah. Patients travel from all over Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming and farther, for his expertise.
Dr. Landau is proud to have successfully helped families grow for over 25 years.
