Dr. Mark Hickman Uses Laparoscopy to Bring Down the Price of a Vasectomy Reversal Procedure

January 16, 2023 at 19:47

Dr. Mark Hickman, the founder of Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals in New Braunfels, Texas, has revealed how his clinic is able to offer patients the most affordable vasectomy reversal procedures in the country.

The primary reason for the low cost of the vasectomy reversal procedure at Dr. Mark Hickman’s New Braunfels clinic is his mastery of laparoscopic surgery, a kind of surgical technique that uses small specialized equipment and instruments and eschews the need for making large incisions in the skin. For context, it is also called keyhole surgery. It is one of the most minimally invasive surgical techniques available to patients and Dr. Hickman is one of the pioneers in the field.

Dr. Hickman received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX, at just 23 years old. Following a grueling training in General Surgery Residence at the University of Texas, he was soon introduced to microsurgery by Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons. On his website, Dr. Hickman writes that he was “amazed at the results of microsurgery and the significantly reduced impact on the patient.”

To focus on the potential offered by laparoscopic procedures, Dr. Hickman then began his private practice and soon established himself as an expert in the burgeoning field. His skill and experience with laparoscopic procedures caught the eye of several other medical professionals and he was asked to teach his minimally invasive techniques to other surgeons. Subsequently, he also invented several surgical instruments, got awarded a US patent, and became recognized as a contributor to several other important minimally invasive patents.

Using his expertise in minimally invasive surgery, coupled with his strong Christian faith, Dr. Mark Hickman then turned his attention to revolutionizing the vasectomy reversal surgery and bringing its benefits to men and families who want a second chance at bringing a new life into this world. The hard work and dedication put in by Dr. Mark Hickman paid off as his clinic now offers extremely affordable vasectomy reversal packages that are within reach of almost all individuals and families in the US.

Dr. Hickman, who has more than 26 years of experience now as a leading minimally invasive surgeon, offers two affordable vasectomy reversal options. The microsurgical vasectomy reversal cost option of $3,300 includes local anesthesia and an oral sedative. The $4,200 offer is performed under IV sedation and is administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Both microsurgical options are all-inclusive with no hidden fees. Even if the patient requires a vasoepididymostomy following a vasovasostomy (the medical name for the vasectomy reversal procedure), the cost of the additional procedure is included in the base package.

During the vasectomy reversal procedure, a small incision is made on each side of the scrotal skin. The patient is completely sedated and feels no pain as the two ends of the vas deferens are found and freed from the surrounding scar tissue. Dr. Hickman then performs a microsurgical repair of the vas deferens using a Zeiss OPMI-MDM operating microscope utilizing a 10-0 nylon suture that is much finer than a human hair. The repair requires 10-15 stitches. At the end of the procedure, a direct and careful alignment of the lumen of the two ends of the vas is created with a watertight closure.

Dr. Mark Hickman’s formula of effective vasectomy reversals at affordable prices has resonated with his customers. The clinic currently has an impressive rating of 4.8 out of 5.0 on its Google Business Profile from 45 reviews. One reviewer talks about their experience at the clinic by saying, “I only have good things to say about Dr. Hickman. Very down-to-earth and personal. I would recommend the doctor and his staff!!” Another reviewer acknowledges the doctor’s adherence to his Christian beliefs by saying, “Best Doctor Ever… Very Kind people, they also pray before surgery. I highly recommend.”
