Thought about having a Vasectomy?

Having a vasectomy

Have you thought life would be simpler if you did not have to worry about contraception and a little surprise in the form of that second blue line coming up?

Dr Julian holds a Bachelor of Surgery qualification as well as being a GP Fellow and has been performing vasectomies in the local area for several years, having worked with a large international vasectomy provider offering services in Australia. His own vasectomy was done by a colleague 18 years ago. He is also an experienced skin surgeon.

No scalpel? How can that be?
