At St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
A vasectomy is considered a permanent method of birth control. A vasectomy prevents the release of sperm when a man ejaculates. During a vasectomy, the vas deferens from each testicle is clamped, cut, or otherwise sealed. This prevents sperm from mixing with the semen that is ejaculated from the penis.
Male circumcision is a surgery that removes the foreskin (the loose tissue) covering the glans of the penis.
A hydrocele is an accumulation of clear fluid in the tunica vaginalis. The tunica vaginalis is the pouch of serous membrane that covers the testes. In adults, an incision is made in the scrotum, the fluid is drained and the hydrocele sac either everted or sewn up so that it cannot re-form.
Please also be aware that we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
