Outpatient Vasectomy Reversals, Microsurgery - Get Pregnant!
Microsurgical Vasectomy Reversals

Dr. John Gatewood has dedicated his practice solely to Microscopic Vasectomy Reversals. He performs vasectomy reversal surgery on patients from all over the world. He operates Monday through Friday.

Dr. John Gatewood is announcing his retirement the end of November 2013. We will not schedule any more surgeries after November. Dr. Gatewood will still be available to his existing patients for follow-up to their surgeries.

“I am grateful for the many years I have been able to do reversal work and for all the wonderful couples I have met through the years. I give all the Glory to God for all of our successes.”

We appreciate your interest in looking at our website.

Dr. Gatewood has performed vasectomy reversals on patients with vasectomies as old as 30 years with resulting pregnancies. His overall patency rate is 96%. The age of the vasectomy is not a deterrent to having a successful vasectomy reversal.

Dr. Gatewood's vasectomy reversal patients have parented enough children to fill an elementary school!

Dr. Gatewood is the medical director and owner of this practice. Our goal is to provide quality outpatient surgical procedures in a caring and safe environment.

The Microsurgical Center is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. We have voluntarily undergone this comprehensive evaluation to make sure we are providing the safest environment and the highest quality care to all our vasectomy reversal patients. We are the only facility of our kind doing microscopic vasectomy reversals in Florida.

Vasectomy reversal surgery is office-based, outpatient, utilizing IV sedation supplemented with local anesthesia, resulting in a procedure which is pain free.

Dr. Gatewood performs both vasectomy reversal and Vasoepididymostomy, in the same setting when indicated. This gives each patient the best opportunity for pregnancy.

Dr. Gatewood has extensive experience in redoing failed vasectomy reversals that were performed by other doctors.

Dr. Gatewood utilizes a Zeiss Operating Microscope which has the capability of enlarging an object 40 times its size. He uses a special Zeiss Microsurgical Chair, one of 2 in the United States, which is ergonomically correct. Dr. Gatewood uses 10-0 nylon microsurgical sutures with a 70 micron needle to perform an inner layer to exactly align the lumen of the vas. He then uses a 9-0 nylon suture to close the outer muscular wall of the vas for a second layer..

The Microsurgical Center uses the “Team of Experience” in this practice. Please read about our credentials. We are proud to have such a fine team of professionals.

The Microsurgical Center offers a convenient payment plan with a total cost of vasectomy reversal (including Vasoepididymostomy for “blow-out,” if necessary) for $7,500.00. Read more details about our payment options.

Our focus is on Safety, Comfort, and Skill.
