Question: How long does a vasectomy operation take?
Answer:

A vasectomy is a relatively quick procedure that takes about 30 minutes and is performed using a local anesthetic. This reduces post operative recovery time, minimizes side effects as a general anesthetic is not necessary, reduces the costs and can be done on an outpatient basis.
