Yes: Vasectomy is definitely an effective method of birth control. There are less complications then when a female gets her tubes tied since this is an outpatient procedure. Done correctly and with a test of cure it is close to 100% effective. But you have to be certain you and your wife are done conceiving because it's quite a procedure to reverse it.
