  • Newton Clinic offering discounted Saturday vasectomiesJune 26, 2017

Newton Clinic is offering a new promotion to local individuals who wish to prevent unintended pregnancy. One Saturday each month, Dr. Esgar Guarin will offer discounted vasectomies at a cost of $599. This is open for both private-pay and insured patients.

A vasectomy is a permanent procedure for those men who no longer wish to have children. It is the most effective birth control option available for men, and is significantly less invasive than the female equivalent of tubal ligation. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, with quick recovery.

"By offering Saturday morning vasectomies, we are making this accessible to men who work during the week, without them having to request time off," Dr. Guarin says. "It also leaves the rest of the weekend to take it easy after the procedure before returning to work on Monday."

This new offering was inspired by the positive response last fall when the clinic offered discounted vasectomies in honor of World Vasectomy Day. "The available slots filled up so quickly," said clinic administrator Mark Thayer, "that we realized this is a significant need in the community we needed to fulfill."

In addition to Dr. Guarin, vasectomies can be scheduled during weekdays with physicians Dr. Zack Alexander, Dr. Duane Jolivette and Dr. Min Pak.

Discounted vasectomies with Dr. Guarin will be offered from 9 a.m.-noon on Sept. 16 and Oct. 21. Appointments are required. To learn more or to schedule a procedure, contact Lynette Marvelli at Newton Clinic at (641) 792-2112 or lynette@newtonclinic.com. The clinic is located at 300 N. 4th Ave. E., Newton.
