Mailbag: Hernia and Vasectomy Surgery


My boyfriend is interested in a vasectomy. Will Dr Chopp be able to repair 2 hernias as well when he is under?


Answered by Dr. Richard Chopp

Dr. Richard ChoppThese would have to be 2 separate procedures. Hernia repair would be done by a general surgeon and under anesthesia and vasectomy is done with only a local anesthesia here in our office.
