David Robbins, MD is part of the elite Tear Free Vasectomy group specializing in No-Needle No-Scalpel Vasectomy procedures. Tear Free Vasectomy involves using a needle free injector to anesthetize the skin prior to the vasectomy. When a needle is used, it requires multiple painful injections in the skin to anesthetize the area. Additionally, the needle sticks can puncture small blood vessels under the scrotal skin causing swelling and bleeding thereby making the post procedure recovery prolonged and uncomfortable. Using a needle free injector allows Dr. Robbins to numb the area with a single application of a very small quantity of lidocaine. The needle free injector disperses microscopic quantities of lidocaine evenly under the skin and provides the perfect anesthetic for an office based No-Needle No-Scalpel Vasectomy. The actual application of the needle free anesthetic is minimally uncomfortable for a brief moment in time comparable to being snapped with a rubber band.
The No Scalpel aspect of the procedure implies that the small skin puncture <3mm is made using a sharp tipped clamp instead of a scalpel. After anesthetizing the area, the vas in grasped through the skin with a sharp tipped grasper and the skin is the separated gently using the clamp. This technique is less traumatic and minimizes manipulation of the tissue surrounding the vas thus reducing post procedure discomfort and swelling.
Dr. Robbins performs hundreds of No-Needle No-Scalpel Vasectomy procedures every year. A typical vasectomy takes less than 15 minutes and patients are back to low impact and routine activities immediately. To learn more about a Tear Free Vasectomy, contact us at 305-672-4222 or visit our website.

For many years the treatment for mainstay treatment for erectile dysfunction has been oral pills like Viagra. Patients with more severe ED had to resort to more invasive options like injection therapy or penile implants. All of the above treatments required patients to plan intercourse around taking medications or manipulating a device to cause an erection. Although these treatment options for ED could help a patient to achieve an erection, they failed to address the root cause of ED, a lack of blood flow to the penis. An alternative novel therapy that has been used around the world for years and is now gaining traction in the United States is know as Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT). This cutting edge therapy for ED uses low intensity sound waves directed at six locations in the penile erectile bodies with the goal of improving vascular blood flow to the penis and thereby restoring natural erectile function. At a cellular level, ESWT results in the release of vascular growth factors that promote new blood vessel formation. Many studies have shown significant restoration of natural erectile function in men receiving ESWT over a placebo. At Urological Consultants of Florida in Miami, we are proud to offer this cutting edge treatment to our patients.
