Vasectomy Sedation with Nitrous Oxide

Undergoing a vasectomy is a nerve-wracking experience for many of our patients. They are often nervous about the procedure itself, and naturally are concerned about how painful it will be. That's why we offer Pro-Nox™, a nitrous oxide system designed to maximize comfort during your vasectomy procedure.

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is commonly used in various medical and aesthetic settings to reduce pain and anxiety. It induces feelings of relaxation and euphoria, ensuring a more relaxed experience during your vasectomy.


How it Works

Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas and has a longstanding history in medical procedures. It's a wonderfully reliable way to ease pain and anxiety. Pro-Nox™ delivers a perfectly balanced 50/50 blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen.

With the Pro-Nox™ machine, you are in complete control during the entire procedure. You hold the tube to your mouth and breathe normally, and the system automatically delivers the perfect amount of gas. This personalized approach ensures that you receive the right amount of sedation precisely when you need it. Once the procedure is over, the effects of the gas dissipate rapidly, letting you return to your normal state in just a few minutes.


Pricing Information

The use of Pro-Nox™ nitrous oxide system for your vasectomy is an additional $220. This fee covers the use of the equipment, the nitrous oxide gas, and ensures that you have the most comfortable experience possible during your procedure.


Benefits of Sedation During Your Vasectomy

  • Relaxation: While no-scalpel vasectomies in our Livermore clinic take a short amount of time, using nitrous oxide sedation transforms the experience. It alleviates any underlying anxiety you may be experiencing.
  • Safe: Not only is nitrous oxide known for its minimal side effects, but it also has a very low risk of allergies or irritations. Its safety profile stands out among sedation options, particularly for medical procedures such as vasectomies.
  • Swift Recovery: Post-procedure grogginess won't be an issue. Most patients find themselves clear-headed and ready to resume their day shortly afterward. You are very likely to feel completely normal after just a few minutes off the gas due to how quickly it metabolizes.
  • Proven and Trusted: Having been used globally for numerous decades, the reliability and effectiveness of nitrous oxide are well-documented. Its quick relief coupled with a non-addictive nature makes it an excellent choice for many patients.
