4th ST Vasectomy Clinic

Dr. Phillip van der Merwe,M.B.,Ch.B, CCFP
Clinical Associate Professor, University of Calgary


Dear Patient,

Thank you for inquiring about a vasectomy.

This is an important decision that should only be considered if you are ready for a permanent form of birth control. To help you make an informed decision I recommend that you speak to your family physician and browse this web site. This service is covered by Alberta Health Care.

Should you decide to use our services, I will introduce myself during a separate visit prior to the procedure to ask a few pertinent health questions and to offer explanations to all your questions. Subsequently I will obtain informed consent from you and once you are ready to proceed there is virtually no wait times for scheduling your surgery.

The day after your procedure I will phone you at home to make sure you are comfortable and give you the opportunity to ask more questions. I am also happy to return your phone calls after wards. Should any follow up be required after the procedure you may simply walk into my office and I will see you immediately.

My objective is to provide you with personal, speedy and effective care.

I look forward to your visit.


Phillip van der Merwe, M.B., Ch.B, CCFP,
