During a Traditional Method Vasectomy a needle is used to anaesthetise a small area of skin on each side of the scrotum. A scalpel is then used to make a small incision on each side of the scrotum and access each vas deferens. A small segment is removed from each vas deferens and the ends ligated with dissolvable ties. The wounds are then closed with sutures which remain in place for 6 days and require removal.  

Prior to the procedure, you may opt to have a dose of intravenous diazepam at no extra cost. This has the advantage of relaxing anxious patients, though is not strictly required.
