Jefferson County Public Health offers no-scalpel vasectomy as a low-cost procedure for men who desire permanent birth control. The no-scalpel vasectomies are performed as an outpatient procedure at our Lakewood location. Patients can return to work three days after a vasectomy.
How It Works / Procedure
Before a procedure is performed, you will meet with a nurse for a consultation appointment where we will review your medical history, discuss information about the procedure, and answer any questions you may have.
A vasectomy can be scheduled 30 days after the consultation appointment. After the procedure is completed, the clinic will perform a sperm count for you to ensure the vasectomy was successful. Men need to continue using an alternate method of birth control until the sperm count is completed.
Vasectomies are intended to be permanent, meaning that men who get the procedure will not be able to cause pregnancies afterward for the rest of their lives.
At this time, we are not able to bill private health insurance plans for vasectomy services. We accept standard benefit Medicaid or self-pay based on a sliding fee scale. Men who have private health insurance or managed care Medicaid (Kaiser HMO Medicaid, Denver Health HMO Medicaid) are encouraged to contact their health insurance company for a list of urologists their insurance plans contract with.
