PVPS Specialists


Disclaimer: The Vasectomy Pain Group has no affiliation with any of
these individuals and assumes no responsibility for your satisfaction.
We have compiled this list because of the appalling lack of medical
competency and treatment resources for PVPS. You will need to
personally verify the accuracy of any of this information.

Please also note: The (*) designation at the end of a name indicates
that the individual is someone well known to the group. Many of the
others have impeccable backgrounds and credentials; we just don’t at
this time have patient testimonials. We welcome additional
resources/corrections/updates if you have any?

Caution: The 2 most common surgeries to relieve chronic PVPS are:
reversal and denervation. They are not interchangeable the former is
for congestive issues and the later is for nerve damage. You are
encouraged to view these remedies as last resort options; only after
all conservative methods have been tried.

This thread will be moderated so that only contact update information is allowed.

Any other replies to this thread will be moved to a separate thread.

This list was originally generated from the November 2013 list of doctors that was available on the Yahoo Group.
