Vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilization and/or permanent birth control. During the procedure, the vas deferens are severed, and then tied/sealed in a manner such to prevent sperm from entering into the seminal stream (ejaculate). Vasectomies are usually performed in a physician’s office orĀ outpatient surgery center.
