Vasectomies are a sterilization method for men who do not want children or do not wish to have more. It is a minor, 15-minute intervention done with local anesthesia at the doctor’s office.
Patients say they felt very little pain: no worse than getting bloodwork done. Some even say they felt no pain at all.
The recovery period for vasectomies is short. Things progressively get back to normal in less than 7 days. The procedure has no effect on sex drive, orgasms, erections, testicles and the scrotum.
We ask patients to keep activities to a minimum over the first 48 hours. Patients can go back to work (if they have a sedentary job) and resume sexual activity two (2) days after the procedure.
As vasectomy becomes an increasingly popular means of birth control, the frequency of vasectomy reversal—the recovery of sperm in the semen—is also increasing.
Vasovasostomy is an effective and safe procedure that restores sperm to allow ejaculation.
Since the procedure is performed under local anesthesia (you will not be put to sleep), no special laboratory tests are required and the procedure itself doesn’t require much preparation.
Patients may return to light work on the fourth post-operative day while wearing the scrotal support without lifting more than 20 pounds during a two-week period.
We ask patients to wear a scrotal support for three weeks.
Baby circumcision is commonly performed early in life. Ideally, babies undergo circumcision within the first two weeks of birth, but the procedures may be performed in the first three months.
A Vaseline-soaked ribbon and gauze will be placed over the head of your son’s penis. Leave them in place and remove 24 hours after the first bath.
If your baby still feels discomfort from the circumcision, give extra doses of Tempra, Tylenol or acetaminophen every four hours as needed.
Dr Bercier does vasectomies in three different locations. You simply have to choose the clinic that better suits you.
Went for a Vasectomy, service was great. Got appointment online, was called next day to schedule. Went in at the appointed time, sat for 2 minutes before I was called. Doctor was very polite and talked during the procedure to keep me relaxed. Procedure completed in about 5 minutes, super professional. All covered by RAMQ!
Very Professional and Knowledgeable. Takes the time to answer all your concerns/Questions. On time appointments and you are literally in and out in 20 minutes. The procedure itself was painless aside from the first sting to freeze you. After that you don't feel a thing. The procedure is about 10-15 minutes. Do not do anything rigorous the following 2-3 days and expect to feel some pain/discomfort for 7-10 days minimum depending on your body's ability to heal and handle pain. Overall a positive experience.
Very good service from Dr. Bercier. He cares about his customers and takes the time to answer questions. Quick, effective and painless intervention.

Tres bonne visite le 8 Août à Montréal pour une procédure de Vasectomie accomplie très professionnellement par Dr. Bercier.

Everyone at Ruby medical clinic was smiley, friendly and helpful. Dr. Bercier was ponctual, polite, calm and extremely competent. My vasectomy was a breeze with none of the horror stories that I heard about. I strongly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Bercier for a vasectomy, you're in good hands!
Very reassuring Doctor. He tool the time to explain things and had a good sense of humour, which we appreciated. It was also nice having it done close to home at the Ruby Medical Clinic. Thank you again! Thank you!
Little more explanation rather then looking up on the internet!
We had a special case (pre-eclampsia) and given the circumstances, the situation was handled with ease. If the diagnosis hadn’t been identified and we weren’t admitted, the result could have been fatal. We came for a routine check-up and are going home with a healthy baby and mom. Dr. Bercier explains the pros and cons, but clearly states his professional opinion based on the facts of the case. We would like to give special mention also to the nursing staff at the Hawkesbury General hospital. Wow! Smart, personable and eager to help and support. Also, what a beautiful facility!!
Nothing against this doctor but I felt it necessary to call out his staff, who botched scheduling my appointment 2 times. I know it has nothing to do with the doctor, but it makes me very wary to trust my tender area with them if they can't even handle scheduling.
