The hospital is newly built, modern, well equipped. The quality of medical examination and treatment is much higher than before. If you live in Hai Ba Trung area and neighboring districts in Hanoi, this is the place to visit.
One of the best private hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City with reasonable prices, adequate equipment and clean rooms. Hospital has testing services, vaccines, CT scans, accommodation, emergency.
They have lots of patients but doctors and nurses in the ICU are hardworking and experienced. They don't accept gifts or money, which is a good practice.
Fantastic facilities and a very caring staff. The doctors were all fluent in English. Strangely, one of my highlights of being in Danang.
Our son was sick. The staff here were absolutely wonderful, found us an English speaking nurse who took us to the emergency and an English speaking doctor. The doctor was very thorough, and well spoken. The fees were very reasonable and our son was back to normal quickly. Many thanks to the staff, we are very grateful for your exceptional care.
I highly recommend this clinic for any expat needing medical care. From the moment I emailed them, I received excellent and efficient care. I was running out of a medication that I take daily, so I came in for a consultation. Dr. Paez was warm and caring, speaks perfect English, and took my full medical history. Although they did not have my medication in stock, they were able to order it so I can pick up in a few days (so I recommend not waiting until you are all out of your Rx; try to come in while you still have a week+ supply, just in case!). The fee for the consultation was reasonable, and I feel a sense of security knowing that I have established care here in Da Nang.

Vasectomy is a procedure in which a male’s vas deferens tube is sealed, cut or tied to prevent the passage of sperms to the urethra. This is a permanent contraceptive technique to avoid fertilization of egg through sexual intercourse. The reversal of this method is known as reverse vasectomy. In this procedure, the ligated vas deferens tube is re-connected. It is an expensive and complicated procedure with not a great success rate. After going through this, the fertility of a male is restored and he is able to get his partner pregnant. Reverse vasectomy can be performed at any time even after a gap of 10-15 years as the sperms are continuously been produced and are viable. The pregnancy rates after this can be as low as 30% to as high as 90% depending upon the procedure used. Only 6% of all the men gone through vasectomy go for a reversal technique.
The surgery is performed under local, general, or regional anesthesia under the supervision of an expert urologist. A cut is given on the scrotum which opens it making the ductus deferens visible. The duct is released from the surrounding tissues and the doctor proceeds with the surgery. There are two known methods for the reversal of vasectomy:
Only the urologist can decide which procedure should be chosen for you. However, a vasovasostomy is performed if the sperms are present in the vasal fluid. If not, vasoepididymostomy is performed. It causes the sperms to move from testes to epididymis and from epididymis to the vasal fluid.
Performed in the outpatient department, reverse vasectomy is not a lengthy procedure. The surgery requires only 2 to 4 hours after which the patient is discharged on the same day from the hospital after he returns to consciousness. Still, the patient is under the influence of anesthesia so he needs someone to be with him. As far as stitches are concerned, they dissolve themselves after a few days. You should plan to stay in Vietnam for at least 2 to 3 days after your surgery, this will allow for the initial recovery and follow-up check-ups, etc.
The recovery time after a reversal vasectomy varies from person to person. It usually takes 5 days to 2 weeks for the recovery. In the first few hours, the patient is woozy due to anesthesia. There is nausea, muscle pain, swelling, fatigue, and sore throat. After the effects of anesthesia fade away the day after surgery, pain is elevated. The recovery process is completed in 2 weeks.
The incision is stitched and covered with bandages. There is pain after surgery which varies from moderate to severe. Pain killers are prescribed to relieve the aching body. For soreness and swelling, ice packs are used. Keeping your legs above the head level might also be beneficial in reducing swelling. Ice packs are applied every half an hour for 10 minutes. Bed rest should be taken to avoid excessive movement of testes during activity. Ask the doctor when to remove the bandages. Besides all the things mentioned above, the following points should be kept in mind:
The success rate is variable and depends upon the individual case. Sperms come into the semen after 4 to 6 months of surgery. Your doctor regularly checks your sperm count till it returns to normal. In vasovasostomy, 6 to 12 months are required to restore the normal sperm count in the semen. While in the case of vasoepididymostomy, it might take longer. Once the sperms come back to the semen, chances to conceive can increase with the passage of time. the success rate also depends upon a number of other factors including any other illness or disease, age of female partner and the quality and quantity of sperms present in the semen.
A reverse vasectomy might not always be successful. There are various reasons for its failure such as any other testicular diseases. In case it fails, another surgery can be performed. If it does not work, following is the alternative for reverse vasectomy:
In vitro fertilization (IVF) of the ovum: Sperms are removed directly from the testes or epididymis using a syringe or through surgery. Success rates are higher if the female partner is younger. This procedure is way more expensive than the reversal of vasectomy. Also, there are no chances of another pregnancy. While reversal is cheaper, aids in natural birth and chances of future pregnancies are also there.
Fertilization through a donated sperm is another option. You can either get sperm from a suitable donor from a sperm bank or you can use your own frozen sperms that were stored before vasectomy. Sperms are removed through a syringe and frozen under suitable conditions.
