In brief: Urologists

Are specialists who perform vasectomy surgery.
Can be done in the office or surgicenter under local anesthetic, or under general anesthesia in an operating room. An office vasectomy is usually the cheapest way to go without sacrificing quality of care. Good Luck

In brief: Urologist

Typically done by a urologist as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia.
Some general surgeons do this as well. Hope this helps!

Family Practice docs are trained and quite proficient in this procedure. I actually trained the general surgeon on my base in the Air Force how to do them

In brief: Vasectomy

Family Practice Doctors are trained and are quite proficient in this procedure.
It is done in the office under local and sometimes IV sedation. I have even done them in the operating room while the general surgeon is doing another procedure. Urologists do them of course as part of their practice as well.
