No Scalpel Vasectomy

Dr. Carla Laidlaw performs no scalpel vasectomies at Westgrove Clinic. The vasectomy is a safe and effective option for permanent birth control in men.

The no scalpel vasectomy technique offers significant advantages over the conventional vasectomy:

  • Less discomfort

  • Fewer complications

  • No stitches or sutures needed

  • Quicker recovery

If you are considering getting a vasectomy, please read the following patient information handouts:

Dr. Laidlaw is currently accepting referrals for vasectomy consults. Please see your family doctor who can refer you to Dr. Laidlaw to discuss whether or not a vasectomy is right for you. At the consult visit we will discuss the procedure and perform a pre-operative exam. There is no commitment to have the procedure performed at the consult visit. If you choose to get a vasectomy done, this will be booked for a later date.

Vasectomies and vasectomy consults are covered by Alberta Health Care. Thus, if you have Alberta Health Care then there will be no cost to you.
