Dr. Huang is the man to see for a vasectomy
After years of contemplating getting a vasectomy, I finally decided to do it. After visiting one urologist (referred to me by my primary care physician) and not having that "warm fuzzy" feeling after seeing the office and talking with the doctor, I made an appointment with Durham Urology. It was like night and day. The moment I walked into the facility, I felt at ease (modern, large, and open waiting room, friendly staff).

I had an initial consult with Dr. Huang (pronounced "Hung") and asked a number of questions and he explained the procedure to me and told me about what complications could arise. Three weeks later I had the procedure. Dr. Huang was EXTREMELY proficient and professional. He warned me before sticking the needle in to numb the area (don't worry, the shot only stings for a second), and as he was putting on the clamps (which was almost immediately after the shot) he would ask if I was in any pain. The local anesthesia takes effect VERY quickly.
From that point, he "did his thing". You will be covered in some material so you won't have to see what's going on (he does the procedure standing up). The only thing you'll see is smoke when he cauterizes the vas (a little bizarre to see, but nothing to worry about. No pain). He was literally done within 15 minutes. There was only one point during the procedure where he must have got a nerve, and it hurt a little, but only for a second (just enough to get my attention. No biggie). I was amazed when he told me he was done. It was over in no time. When he was through, he said "that's it. You can get dressed." It was that simple. I walked out of the office with NO pain whatsoever. About two yours later, I felt just a VERY minor pain that lasted only 15-20 minutes, but nothing that made me reach for any Tylenol (and I have a low-pain threshold) . Do yourself a favor and see Dr. Huang if you're considering a vasectomy. Had procedure just yesterday. Still NO pain. Unbelievable!
