Vasectomy is permanent sterilisation for men that involves cutting and tying the tubes that carry the sperm.

Vasectomy operations are available at our clinics in

  • Newmarket (Auckland)
  • Lower Hutt
  • Christchurch.

There are two appointments involved, the pre vasectomy appointment and the vasectomy operation.

The pre-vasectomy consultation is with a trained clinician who will explain the procedure and perform an examination.

Our doctors use a no-scalpel technique.

The vasectomy operation takes between 30-45 minutes.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
