My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

Vasectomy is performed under local anesthetic, meaning that you will be awake but you will not feel anything. Your doctor will remove and seal the tubes (vas deferens) that carry sperm from your testicles. Once the tubes have been cut, your sperm cannot reach your semen or leave your body anymore.
You can leave the hospital on the same day of the procedure, but you will need to stay in South Africa for at least 2 to 4 days. During your stay, you will need to attend hospital check-ups. If your doctor does not use dissolving stitches, removal of stitches will take place during the check-up.
Rest for at least 24 hours after the procedure and avoid physical activities, such as exercise and sexual intercourse, for around a week. You should be able to go back to work in 3-5 days.
There is no special diet you need to follow and do not have unprotected sex until you have ejaculated at least 15 to 20 times. Once you have had 15 to 20 ejaculations, you can undergo a follow-up test with your local doctor to examine if your semen is free of sperm.
Vasectomy is almost 100% effective. Unsuccessful vasectomy happens when the tubes re-join, but it is very rare. Risks and side effects are very uncommon, but if they do happen, they usually include infection, inflammation, bruising, and swelling.
There is currently no alternative for male sterilization that is as effective as a vasectomy. The current best alternative for men is to use a condom during sexual activities or to ask the female partner to use birth control.
Before the procedure, you need protection to avoid unwanted pregnancy. After the procedure, you no longer need any form of protection as your semen is free of sperm. However, the procedure will not protect you from any sexually transmitted infections.
