Clifton Beach Medical Centre
Vasectomies, Prostate Checks
Vasectomies are performed (usually on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday) under local anaesthetic in conjunction with an awake light anaesthetic. It is relatively painless and mild discomfort from the procedure may last for a few days only. An appointment to discuss the procedure and its requirements is needed a few weeks prior to the operation.
Prostate Screenings are recommended that all men over the age of 50 years attend annually for a check-up, or over 45 years, if there is a family history of prostate disease or cancer.
