Did you guys get two holes?

I'm 16 years back. I had read about that at the time, but it was new and pricey and I was self-pay. Two holes.

Strange. I was self-pay too, and shopped around. As I recall, everyone wanted around $500. The guy I chose wasn't the only one doing the
"no scalpel" method. You'd think it would be cheaper seeing it takes all of 10 minutes.

I wonder if it was new and risky as far as malpractice was concerned?

Could be. It became available in the USA in 1999, so it was new when we got ours.

Interesting that the above link mentions vasectomy significantly lowers the incidence of BPH, in Chinese at least :lol:. Need to check that out.

Apparently no-scalpel is still not universal.
